The Covid 19 pandemic is raging unabated and promises to be around throughout winter and well into the New Year 2021. The dry, cold climate compounded by soaring pollution levels is seeing a spike in the spread of the infectious virus – with the common cold and flu adding to our challenges.
The need to maintain social distancing and to mask up has never been as critical as it is now. While we’re all accustomed to wearing masks now – winter chill, smog and (!) winter wardrobes now demand a mask “refresh.”
The good news is that closely woven fabrics – especially cotton, are still your best bet when it comes to face masks. Cotton cloth masks are eco-friendly, comfortable and effective. Summer Masks were all about light cotton weaves, pastel colours, delicate embroidery and finishing. Winter Masks are all about double and triple layers, weaves that enable warmth, fits that fully cover one’s nose, mouth and chin in comfort and style.
Team WorldArtCommunity is thrilled to present our recommendations for Artisanal Masks for Winter.
