- Organic cotton threads.
- Thanks to their irregular hollow cores, our linen and hemp fabrics are naturally anti-bacterial and have a large surface area for filtering particulates and microbes.
- One pleated layer of organic linen fabric for one size fits most adjustability. Perfect for use where social distancing is observed. For densely populated areas, close encounters, and vulnerable groups, go for one of our two-layer masks (Everidge, Vivaldi, Donizetti, or Clearbrook). If you only occasionally need a second layer, you can place one of our organic mask filters on the skin, then put the single layer mask on top to secure in place.
- No formaldehyde, elastic, BPA, PVC vinyl, GMO, or PFAS forever chemicals.
- Packaged new inside biodegradable cellophane; we do not accept returns for health reasons.
- Tie behind the head or ears. Hand-crafted by Rawganique since 1997.
- Remember to sanitize your hands before you put on the mask and after you take off the mask and keep your hands from your face.
- Because it is organic, you can put our linen face mask in boiling water for 30 seconds to clean & disinfect. Hang or lay flat to dry and steam iron as needed. Please DO NOT do this with plastic or synthetic or GMO cotton face masks; it's not safe. Or hand wash with a mild detergent. No dryer. Iron at linen settings, if desired.

100% Organic Linen Cloth Face Mask Mouth Mask

We couldn't bring ourselves to put plastic or PVC mouths masks against our nose and skin, so we created these organic flax linen face - mouth masks, which have become so protective and useful to us and our customers in many different ways over the years (we started making them in 1997). People use these organic linen face mouth masks while cleaning the kitchen, bathroom, garages, basements, attics, their cars, their pets (especially when cleaning their pets' teeth). Of course, now with COVD-19, these organic flax linen face mouth masks have proven to be invaluable. Many customers use them on their own, or with a layer of our organic hankies or screen cloths for extra protection. Nurses and doctors have told us they wear our organic face - mouth masks, then put on their N95 masks on top so that their skin touches an organic material. Our organic linen face mouth masks can easily be disinfected by dipping in boiling water for a few seconds. Hang or lay flat to dry and steam iron as necessary.

If you don't want your skin, nose & mouth to touch & inhale possible fumes from plastic & polyester & potentially harmful bleaches & dyes, our 100% organic linen face mask mouth mask 😷 is the answer. This chemical-free all-natural mouth mask offers protection against airborne pollutants & contagious viral respiratory diseases. Our plastic-free organic linen mouth and face mask is not only safe & non-toxic for adults & children, but also comfortable to wear for extended periods of time for true all-day protection. Our unique linen face mouth masks are better for you especially if you are chemically sensitive or allergic or concerned about potential chemicals in regular store bought face masks made out of plastic, vinyl or polyester. You can breathe easy knowing that natural organic flax linen fiber is next to your skin protecting you from potential dust particles & toxins in the air.

This hand-washable, reusable organic courtesy face mask can be fitted behind the ears or tied behind the head. Our unique organic facial covering mask is made from a breathable 100% organic linen fabric & sewn using organic cotton threads. This all-natural hypoallergenic face mask is completely chemical-free. No VOC, no bleach, no dye, no PVC, no plastic, no elastic, no Velcro, no GMO, no pesticides, no dioxin, no formaldehyde, no forever chemicals such as PFAS. Only natural fiber. As it should be, for your & our all safety.

If you're adding a filter, please note that with this single-layer mask, the filter is worn directly on the face, and held in place by the mask. This works fine for short trips in public such as a subway or bus ride. If you need to wear the mask for a long time, please choose one of our 2-layer styles with a pocket to insert the filter in (Everidge, or Clearbrook).

The US government, the CDC, and many cities, states and countries around the world officially recommend or require the use of cloth fabric face covering in public. There's a fine of $1,000 in Laredo, TX, for not wearing a face mask in public. In Austria, Czech, and Yogoslavia, it's required to wear a face mask in public to help flatten the curve and minimize community infection.

CNN: The reason the CDC said at the time that people who don't have symptoms don't have to wear masks was to reserve the supply of masks for medical professionals. People wondered "why are masks good for healthcare workers but not for the public"?

"Trying to avoid mask shortages for healthcare workers appears to have been the main priority of those arguing against the widespread use of masks. But while the motivation behind this may have been good, such advice may have actually helped spread the virus, thus adding to the number of patients overwhelming hospitals."

"One of the reasons the CDC's Refields gave for potentially changing the guidance on masks is that the coronavirus can be spread when people are asymptomatic, and therefore having everyone covering their faces - as has been the norm in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia since January - could help rein in transmission."

From a Washington Post article (thanks to the customer who pointed it out to us): "
In this case, such delays might be deadly and economically disastrous. It’s time to make masks a key part of our fight to contain, then defeat, this pandemic. Masks effective at flattening the curve can be made at home with nothing more than a T-shirt and a pair of scissors. We should all wear masks - store-bought or homemade - whenever we’re out in public." Organic face masks are safe for your skin, your health, and the environment, too. Customers who are handy have also purchased our organic cotton, linen and/or hemp fabric by the yard to make their own organic face masks in addition. Recommended fabrics: Wisteria (hemp), Maple (linen), and Charpentier (organic cotton).

From Science Magazine, which interviewed George Gao, Director-General who oversees 2,000 frontline employees at the Chinese Center for Disease Control: "The big mistake in the US and Europe, in my opinion, is that people aren't wearing masks. The virus is transmitted by droplets and close contact. Droplets play a very important role - you've got to wear a mask, because when you speak, there are always droplets coming out of your mouth. Many people have asymptomatic or presymptomatic infections. If they are wearing face masks, they can prevent droplets that carry the virus from escaping and infecting others."

5 of 5 Great customer service! May 11, 2020
Reviewer: Cynthia McBride from TX United States  
I'm not a fan of wearing a mask, but I know I don't want to breath in fibers from fabric that is filled with chemicals. Most of all, I was really impressed with the customer service at Rawganique.
