This mask was constructed with 2 layers of high density quilters cotton and one layer of non-woven interfacing. This is the most recognized standard for a good mask with a low moisture penetration. The mask has a unique plastic nose piece that helps with fit, it is plastic and can be re-bent many times and is safe for washing and should not damage the fabric of the mask. Your mask has a fold over casing for the ear elastics to run through, this design was considered the most flexible as you can tie the elastic to your preferred length for fit and comfort, replace them if for any reason they were to wear out (which can happen with continuous bleach washing) with more elastic or replaced with ties or shoe laces if the wearer prefers a around the head tie instead of the ear ties ( a 45 inch shoe lace works great).

The mask fit most teens and adults, and NOW AVAILABLE FOR KIDS!
