The Keiki Dept
Batch 5: PALAKA Keiki (3-7 years old) Handsewn Face Mask (Serged Edges)
Our masks are made from 100% cotton or cotton/poly blend and are washable and reusable.
Keiki face masks DO NOT contain a pocket for a filter. It is in my opinion that Keiki should stay home and not be out in public areas except for essential activities like a doctorʻs appointment.
Elastic may be tightened depending on the size needed for your keiki. Once tightened, you may push the knot inside the casing for comfort.
- Elastic may contain latex.
- Fabric has been pre-washed and dried but wash again prior to use.
- Elastic may be maroon, blue, black or white
- Inner layer may be a printed fabric or solid piece of fabric (you may not choose).
- Pink Mauna might have the darker mauna up or the darker mauna down (as pictured).
Please understand that our face masks are not a replacement for medical grade Personal Protective Equipment, and in circumstances where medical grade Personal Protective Equipment is recommended, you should consult a health care professional. The decision to use this mask is solely your own.
A homemade mask is not considered true PPE, and will not be quite as effective as using a medical grade, disposable mask. The CDC recommends all masks should cover the entire front (including below the chin) and sides of the face.
The CDC has considered homemade face masks to be used as a last resort in hospitals and medical facilities. Masks made from cotton and elastic certainly won't harm civilians at home or when going out, as long as you're also following other protocols to stay safe.
Please remember that use of face masks is not intended to replace other recommended measures to stop the community spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing, washing your hands and refraining from touching your face. Follow the latest advice of the CDC and your own health care professionals as to how best to keep yourself safe.
