Hi, I’m Hannah, and I work as a theatre designer and costume maker. As the pandemic hit, and all of my work was cancelled, I started making scrubs and masks for the NHS. It was at this point that I decided to open my Etsy shop, The Green St Mask Workshop - selling eco friendly, reusable face masks.
I am completely commited to make the most environmentally friendly face masks that I can, using really fabulous and interesting pattern designs. The masks that I make are washable, and reusable. They all have a filter pocket to make a triple layer mask. They also have a removable nose wire, and adjustable ear loops/ties. I use 300 thread count organic cotton to line each mask, and the outer fabric is either organic cotton, or deadstock material. I stitch each mask with organic cotton thread, and my elastic is made from organic cotton and sustainable rubber. Do have a look around my shop, to see a range of the fabric designs I have on offer, all made to order in different sizes.
