These face masks are made by hand by Michaela Corning in her sewing studio in Seattle, WA using authentic kuffiya fabric from Palestine. Limited quantities available.
Each face mask has an insert on the inside for a CDC approved filter (filter not included). The masks are 4 layers thick (2 layers more than the simple cotton versions) and are made with the wider headband/hair tie elastic measuring 5/8" wide. Elastic can be tied in the back to make them tighter depending on how snug you would like the mask. Elastic measures approximately 11-12" long. The length of the elastic is primarily meant for women's faces.
You will receive one of the masks pictured after choosing the color option from the drop down, the photo of the mask style will appear. Only two main styles exist of this color. Due to the nature of the handwoven kuffiya, variations will occur in the pattern.
Masks measure approximately 7.5" wide and 3.5" tall (unextended) / 7" (fully extended). One size fits most.***
CDC recommends multi layered cotton fabric masks. With the filter pocket you can add even more protection by inserting for example a filter.
***For safety reasons, these are NOT RETURNABLE. These are not medical grade masks. Washing by hand is highly recommended due to the nature of woven kuffiya material.
How much does shipping cost?
This depends on two things: where you are located and where the retailer(s) are located.
At RIISH, we offer free shipping on all orders over $100 that are within the US (boutiques and shipping address both in the US) OR within Canada (boutiques and shipping address both in Canada). If your order is within the United States (or within Canada) but less than $100, there will be a flat fee of $9.95 for shipping.
Orders between the US and Canada are a flat rate of $12.95 if the order is under $125 and free if the order is over $125.
International orders: If the order includes a retailer outside the US or Canada, or is being shipped to a destination outside the US/Canada, you will be charged a flat fee of $25 for shipping. Taxes and duties may also apply and are the responsibility of the purchaser.
**There may be exceptions to this if a specific boutique has different shipping rules (for example, if a specific boutique offers free shipping internationally)**
How long will it take for me to get my order?
Products are shipped within 3 business days from the time of order. Shipping within the US takes between 3-7 business days, depending on the location of the boutique relative to the destination. International order can take 1-3 weeks to arrive.
Do you offer rush shipping?
That depends on the item and the retailer you are ordering from. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before you place the order and we will let you know if it can be expedited and how much the expedited shipping charges will be.
Why is my order arriving in more than one shipment?
That is because the products that you order on the RIISH marketplace are shipped directly from the brands’ or boutiques’ original warehouses.
