I bought both styles and am so happy I did.
These are very effective and comfortable which makes our challenge with the COVID-19 virus more acceptable. The fabric pattern on mine is different but just as attractive. I hand was mine with mild detergent, air dry them, and use my clothes steamer or steam iron on them. I have not had any facial irritation with these as I had with some of my other masks.
Beautiful piece of art
Love the artwork Good Akan Mother. It arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the picture online. I also like that it is signed by the artist. I will definitely be investing in a glass frame to protect this beautiful work!
