Note: Due to variations of pattern on batik fabric, the final fabric maybe different from the ones pictured.
I purchased both the original with the larger profile and nose guard, as well as the design that is rectangular with accordion pleats and fits around the ear. The masks are just too large, the fabric is beautiful BUT not as thick as other masks I have from another source, and when resizing the elastic around the ear enough to make the mask stay, my ears hurt. I purchased several for my family, and my son who has a larger head said the same thing about his ears hurting. I simply don’t feel as safe or secure in these masks, and will go back to my original source.
I have 6 masks from Kasih. The fabrics are substantial and beautiful. When ordering take care: There are two types of masks - one has a nose wire, and one does not. The masks without the nose wire are a lighter weight. I use these to wear over a surgical or KN95 mask. The ones with a nose wire are not substantial and I wear these alone, with a filter in the filter pocket. I love both styles. The fabrics are gorgeous and quality. I would definitely order from them again.
This is a multi-layer, washable mask with a nose wire and filter pocket. The design is beautiful and the quality seems to be good. It’s made for a medium or larger face.
Extremely comfortable and well made! Lasting through many washings.
