How to Measure:

It’s important that your face covering fits as snug as possible to your face. Take some time to do the following measurements before you order. Don’t assume that your face size is similar to your clothing size! Face shapes can vary significantly from person to person.

• Measure from under your nose to the bottom of your chin.
• Measure from the beginning of one ear, over the tip of your nose, to the start of your other ear.

PM2.5 Filter Packs:

PM2.5 filters filter out particles that are as small as 2.5 microns. Virus particles are even smaller than 2.5 microns. However by including a filter in your mask, whether it is a PM2.5 filter or another filter, you are adding extra layers of protection to your cloth face covering. Each of the PM2.5 filters are made of 5 layers of cloth, including two layers of meltblown cloth and one layer of activated carbon cloth to provide excellent filtration. Typically used to prevent the inhalation of air pollution particulates, PM2.5 can help increase effectiveness of non-medical face coverings.

• PM2.5 filters are not equivalent to N95 masks. N95 masks capture 95% of airborne particles larger than 0.3 microns. PM2.5 filters capture particles matter larger than 2.5 microns.

• PM2.5 filters can be used continuously for 16-24 hours, or for 1-2 weeks when used occasionally.

• Sold in packages of 2.

 

How It's Printed:

Reactive Printing

Reactive printing is a multistep process formulated for printing on natural fabrics. It involves 4 main steps: pretreating fabrics, printing, steaming and washing.

The pretreatment process involves coating fabrics in a finely tuned chemical mixture that stiffens the fabric and helps bond the ink to the fabric. Once coated, the fabrics are digitally printed with reactive inks using colour profiles suited to each fabric. It’s quick and insanely accurate! The CMYK ink set translates your artwork into millions of tiny drops that are jetted out from the technologically advanced print heads. After printing, steaming is where the magic happens! The fabric slowly moves through a steam chamber heated to 102 degrees Celsius which opens the fibre’s cells. Once opened, the ink can transfer into the fibres. After steaming the print will be at maximum vibrancy and colour depth. The last step is washing to remove all excess inks and residual pretreatment. The fabric passes through 3 different temperature baths and we add special detergents and finishers to wash and significantly soften the fabrics.

It’s a long process but it’s worth it! All fabrics printed with a reactive process are fully washable with no fading and perfectly soft and ready to use for any project.

 

Environment Impact of Reactive On-demand Printing

Reactive printing on-demand is a low waste process. Since every meter we print is for a specific customer, we never have overstock or deadstock. Fabrics that we pretreat incorrectly can simply be washed and retreated. Our washing machinery recirculates water to minimize water usage. The steamer uses less than 40 litres of water most production days. We use natural gas heaters to power the printer heater and practice widely accepted energy saving techniques daily within our facility including recycling all cardboard, papers, and plastics.
