I have a bunch of Kasih face coverings -- love the fabrics. Be sure to wash them before wearing, though. I was traveling in Japan, wearing my new masks almost all day, indoors and outdoors. Very comfortable, even with an added filter. However, I ended up with a red rash on my nose. Benadryl creme solved the problem, but for buyers who aren't traveling right away -- wash first! If no time, then pack Benadryl!
This is my second order, and I'm very pleased with the masks. I still take measures to distance and mask where I feel there's too many people too close together, and in those situations I wear can 95. However, I add filter inserts with these masks and I enjoy them where there is less crowding. I enjoy your updated patterns and colors, and I always find the quality exceptional and the Fabrics creative and interesting.
My favorite way to protect my face. And be stylish in an Indonesian way as well. Highly recommended!
Just love my many masks from here. Always get compliments. I especially like helping women be independent, so that’s an added bonus to their beautiful fabrics and work.
I’ve bought maybe 8-10 of these over the past two years. They’re beautiful and very well made.
