With the lockdown in full effect, fabric masks are making a real statement in the South African market. Surgical masks seem to be few and far between, so people and companies alike have found a safe and totally fashionable solution, fabric masks. They may be a little bit pricier than the regular masks from our local pharmacies, but in the long run, they make financial sense.
Fabric masks are quickly becoming everyone’s preferred option because they are hand and machine washable. Depending on the type of fabric used, they can be hypoallergenic and are just so much more comfortable. So we’ve put together our top six favourite fabric masks that you should check out.
Keedo comes through

These will be available from May 1st, with a variety of prints and fun designs. These super cute fabric masks are an amazing investment for your little one. The single-layer #keedmasks are R149, while the double layer ones are R179.
