Aboriginal Art Fabric Face Mask
Using some pretty amazing fabrics, Alperstein Designs have produced a range of Australian made 100% cotton face masks featuring beautiful Aboriginal Artwork. There’s a filter pocket on the inside of the mask and using the adjustable nose wire, you can adjust the mask for a close fit to your face. Elastic loops fit around your ears to hold the mask in place.
This mask does not claim to give you respiratory protection from viruses but may help prevent the spread of germs to others!
It is recommended to wash your mask between uses. Also note the fabric mask comes with one filter for inside the filter pocket - these filters are meant as single use only and may be added as additional protection if desired.
PLEASE NOTE: Artwork/placement will vary between images shown based on where we have cut the pattern so each mask's artwork placement will be a little bit different. One Size fits most.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS -
Face masks feature artworks reproduced under license from Artists and Art Centres around Australia.
Established in 1985 Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia.
Munupi Arts give local artists an opportunity to proudly celebrate Tiwi culture through both traditional and contemporary mediums. Munupi Art is wholly indigenous owned and governed. Generated income supports the artist's families and therefore the whole Tiwi community.
Ampilatwatja (pronounced um-bludder-witch) The Artists of Ampilatwatja community was established in 1999 near Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. The work produced by the artists is recognisably distinct from other Aboriginal artistic communities, due to the application of fine dots and the often bright and figurative depiction of the land.
Sheryl J Burchill - Aboriginal Artist North Queensland Australia
Sheryl uses her Kuku Yalanji culture to inform her knowledge of traditional stories and life style and to use contemporary means to express her ideas. Sheryl’s artwork is represented in local, national and international collections.
