This #peoplesmask is an initiative from the World Fair Trade Organization Asia. The masks are made on a large scale from handwoven cotton leftover fabric, which makes it possible to keep the price affordable for everyone.
This is not a medical mask but can be important to keep each other safe, in combination with social distancing and washing your hands.
Available in sizes child (small!) and adult.
For the moment, face masks are not recommended for children below the age of 12, because it is more difficult for them to follow all the recommended guidelines. But because we don't know what future scientific research might say, some older children or adults might need a smaller mask, or kids might just want to play doctor at home, we have a small supply in kids' sizes.

the last few days scientist say that the virus could survive longer in elastics than in fabric, so we recommend a long washing program at 60°C (preferably not in eco modus because that might lower the temperature) + ironing at high temperature with steam

Face masks cannot replace social distancing, handwashing and other safety measures!

How do I use a face mask?
The face masks aren't medical masks but could help with the following:
it can help you to avoid touching your face since the mask makes you much more aware of it
it helps you from spreading droplets when talking or coughing
in a certain amount it can also help you from inhaling other people's droplets when they speak or cough but this can't be guaranteed!
The face masks are produced under strict hygiene and safety standards, however, we would always recommend washing a new fabric or piece of clothing before use.
The most important rules are:
wash your hands before putting on your mask
touch only the elastic bands, not the mask itself
when putting on the mask (with very clean hands!), you can touch the mask to put it in the right position, after that it's hands off
replace when dirty or moist
don't touch the mask again until you can take it off (when it's dirty or moist), take it off by the elastic bands, then put it in the laundry (preferably in a ziplock bag)
wash your hands afterwards
Wash used masks at 60°C at least (not in eco mode as this might lower the temperature). Keep the clean mask in a clean bag or box and only touch the elastic bands. If you can't wash at a high temperature, make sure to iron the mask on a high temperature, preferably with steam.
