Simple pleated/surgical style mask w/ filter pocket + nose wire slot made using 100% high quality reuse/vintage materials.
CURBSIDE pickup available in South Mpls.*
Just the basics here: a single pleated mask sewn using 100% reuse materials. Look for trim made using vintage textiles, lightweight face panels, thoughtful contrasts, and strong seams: we want you to be able to reuse these again and again.
These masks are *not* medical grade masks, and neither guaranteed to prevent illness nor avoid disease transmission.
We’ve chosen to offer this particular pattern because we wanted a mask option for ourselves with a highly customizable fit, and also wanted to make sure our masks could serve a broadly intended purpose for as many community members as possible.
After testing and modifying many different styles over the last several weeks, we’ve landed on a modified version of the Deaconess-style mask for its versatility:
• ties = can be fit to any head size
• lightweight cotton/cotton-poly material = good option for warm summer weather, minimal breathing interference, and/or as a ‘keep it clean’ layer that can be tied over a medical grade mask.
• filter pocket = you can test different filter options/material thicknesses to figure out what works best for your breathing needs, activity levels, and weather conditions, and customize accordingly.
• a narrow channel created for the insertion of an optional nose wire (paper clip? twist tie?) = fit closer to face, reduce fogging on eyeglasses, ability to remove the wire prior to laundering (or Instant Pot steaming…google it!).
When you purchase any variation of this listing, you’ll receive one handmade surgical-style pleated face mask crafted by one of Junket’s talented sewists using 100% post-consumer materials, including cotton/cotton-poly (mostly vintage) fabric and secondhand-sourced thread. While you have the option to choose a specific color for the face, trim will vary from mask to mask.
We ship with secondhand materials via ground transit: no planes = less pollution: to your health!
We’ve spent the last half decade building a body of knowledge about how our product choices and the ways in which they reach us contribute to our planet’s carbon dioxide (equivalency) emissions. We’ve used this core competency to design not only our products, but also our packaging and shipping programs, to minimize the greenhouse gas emissions typically generated by manufacturing and shipping operations. For case studies, you can find our work at shopjunket.com/data.
Why? We want you to breathe easily *all the time.*
Peace and good health,
