  • Handmade
  • Materials: Kona cotton, 100percent cotton, organic cotton, organic, aluminum nose wire, cotton jersey, stretchy cotton

This fitted face mask comes in 3 sizes, is made for musicians and should be used in addition to other safety precautions. I’ve played around with a couple patterns out there and found that either there wasn’t enough coverage (the one with the rectangle flap), or there was so much coverage that the musician would have to excessively touch the mask around their mouth and nose either with their hands or with the mouthpiece of their instrument (which is a big mask safety no no). So this mask uses my own pattern (see my non-musician face masks...5 stars!) but incorporates a completely novel overlapping horizontal flap system to allow for easy adjustment for an instrument, and re-adjustment after playing by just lifting the bottom edge of the mask up to completely cover the mouth (resulting in 4 layers of fabric over the mouth with a snug fit.)

Full disclosure... I do not personally play a wind instrument. I am a designer who has worked with a university band director and individual musicians (brass, wind and reed instruments) to come up with two unique designs (this horizontal opening, and another mask with a vertical opening.)

It is made with 2 layers of CDC recommended 100 percent cotton (one being tight weave kona cotton) and a nose wire to ensure a tight fit to avoid fogging of glasses. The sides are cinched with soft jersey ties that can be arranged in 3 ways to suit your personal preference. If you would like ear loops or head loops as described in my other masks, feel free to message me with your order.

3 ways the mask fits onto your face:
- Ear Loops: Tie the Jersey ties behind your ears and cut off excess tie fabric. Easiest to put on/off. Doesn’t mess with hair. Ears can get irritated with long-term wear.
- Ties: jersey ties tie on/off behind the head and neck. Not easy to put on but the fit is adjustable and it won’t irritate your ears if you have to wear it for a long time. Can get tangled with longer hair and be uncomfortable when worn with tight hats.
- Head Loops: Tie the Jersey behind your head and neck and cut off excess. It is easier to put on than tying but not as easy as the Ear Loops. It is adjustable (you can tie it one time to fit and cut off the excess) and won’t irritate the ears.

-Serged edges to hold up in the wash.
-Cinched sides allow for adjustability to a variety of face shapes and sizes.
-Flex-fit nose (washable aluminum nose bridge sewn inside to shape to your nose for a tight seal).
-Made by me, a mom designer, in a sanitized studio in the USA

This mask is super comfy and makes it possible to drink through a straw or even a regular cup without it being an ordeal. You don’t have to do this for this mask to be glasses-friendly, but I added some fashion tape to the bridge to get a complete seal and avoid fog. It works perfect and because I can access my mouth, I don’t find myself fussing with my mask. And everything stays in place. In fact, I wore it today for 5 hours and never adjusted or messed with it. No fogged glasses...didn’t feel claustrophobic...felt like I could hydrate like normal...and was still protected. Exactly what ai needed!

These are awesome. I teach Middle School band and our district is teaching in person at the present moment. These work with every instrument (including flute). Comfortable, stay on your nose (even after washing). Looking forward to purchasing more!

This is a great mask, I am using it with a brass chamber group and it has been so nice to easily play my trumpet while still taking safety precautions!
