At Beautiful Masks we believe that good design should always combine form with function. We also believe in aiming high. For a reusable face mask this means beautiful aesthetics using top quality materials, combined with an exceptional fit that is tailored and comfortable. Top this off with the superior level of protection provided by a five layer removable filter and we believe you have a truly beautiful mask.
In the early days of the pandemic we dreamed of designing and making face masks that would meet these demands and bringing them to family, friends and the wider public. As a couple with a combined background in high level fashion design, web technology and health care we believed we were well placed to make this dream a reality.
As the pandemic has progressed and the scientific research and understanding of the importance of mask-wearing has improved, knowledge about the importance of fit and fabrics has also improved. Masks with seams down the center, masks with stretch fabric or only two layers of fabric and even masks with valves have all been found to be wanting.
Today as we approach the new normal we are happy that we designed our masks to such exacting standards and we are proud to bring you our Beautiful Masks. We hope that used together with other important measures such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing they will help us all to stay safe, healthy and beautiful.
How are Beautiful Masks made?
Our beautiful masks are designed by Loz. She is industry trained in the design studios of central London and atelier studios of Tuscany Italy, progressing through the ranks from sample machinist to pattern cutter and then designer at Boy London, Ocean Pacific and Massimo Rebecchi, before owning her own small design and manufacturing business, wholesaling to independent boutiques throughout the UK.
In the 2000’s Loz turned her attention to contemporary crafts and alternative therapies. Later, she taught creative therapy workshops and infection control to Allied Health Professional students. During the lockdown she returned to her love of fashion, working on the masks in her home based studio. All of our masks are lovingly hand crafted by Loz. No sweat shops or mass production here! Our hygiene and quality control is strict but we enjoy a pleasant working environment and plenty of tea breaks.
Our website is designed by Boz, also known as ‘Oh Wise One’ by friends for his technical wizardry. His 35 years of teaching Tai Chi combined with his skills in technology and web design have enabled us to stay calm throughout the many combined challenges of lockdown and business start up. His aim has been to make your online shopping experience as simple and pleasurable as possible.
