Gili Collection Batik Face Covering - Orange Dream - Hand Drawn Batik
Kasih coop masks are my favorite. I own 7 of them. They are the most comfortable, provide great coverage, are soft, yet structured enough to stay off your nose & mouth when you inhale. For travel, they are the best because you can keep them on for a long time comfortably. I also like that the inside has two vertical openings for you to easily slide in a filter. They also launder well and look good after many washings. I do love most of their prints but wouldn’t mind a plain black version.
My favorite masks!! I have several of the different prints and have loved every one. I find them extremely comfortable and they really reduce glasses fog!!
Really good masks
