The mask is made of hemp and cotton to create a long-lasting and comfortable eco-friendly mask, we have made a design that fits around your face for best protection and three layers of material and adjustable size. The inside fabric is soft hemp and fabric to make it very comfortable to wear.
It is a very breathable mask and the three layers are good for keeping your face warm during winter and works very well if you need to wear it for a long time. The hemp and cotton is grown in the nepalese himalayas and woven and made into a mask in our workshop in Kathmandu. The mask has been made according to the WHO guidelines for the type of fabric masks that are effective. They should have three layers: an inner layer that absorbs, a middle layer that acts as a filter, and an outer layer made from a non-absorbent material.
All the materials are made out of 100% natural fibres and natural dye which gives it natural antimicrobial properties. Inner layer: Hemp and Cotton Middle layer: 55% Hemp 45% Cooon Outer layer: 100% Hemp It comes in 3 different colours which use natural dyes. It has an adjustable strap so it doesn't pull on the ears which makes it very comfortable. Is machine washable and using a reusable mask helps save waste to landfill.
Our hemp and organic cotton masks can be machine washed using a soft or natural detergent at 30° or lower, wash colours and whites separately and do not bleach. We recommend hanging it out to dry but can be machine dried on a low setting. Please note a small bit of colour may come off after first couple of washes We wanted to make these masks as plastic-free as possible, there is no plastic used in the packaging or shipping materials except 1 bag for 300 per masks to keep waterproof in cargo and storage. They are made and packaged hygienically with hands washed for packaging.

In 2017, when the founders of Himal Natural Fibers traveled through Nepal for a trek in the Himalayas, they experienced how the local communities used the plants and herbs that grow wild in the mountains. They were shown how to harvest these natural fibers locally in a sustainable way and process them for the villages. These plants are also ideal for the production of breathable, strong and warm textiles. Today, at Himal, they are fully committed to making clothes that are inspired by what they found during that trip to Nepal. They make clothing from plant fibers that grow wild in the region, such as hemp and nettle. These plants require no irrigation or pesticides and the harvesting practices are rooted in sustainability and care.
Ethically produced: The clothing is made in Nepal, in partnership with Natural Fiber ltd. This is a workshop in Kathmandu where 15 people are employed. The people are well looked after and Himal pays the school fees for the children and provides meals while working. All fabrics come from trusted suppliers. Some are woven by hand using traditional methods in the Himalayas, providing a fair income while maintaining their traditional way of working.
Eco-friendly: Himal uses sustainable, plant-based materials such as hemp, nettle, organic cotton, Corozo knots and Piñatex. The hemp, nettle and organic cotton come from Nepal, Piñatex and Corozo come from Spain and the UK. Himal does not use plastic in products or packaging and some fabrics are woven by hand. Himal tries to be as kind as possible to the earth and is always looking for ways and solutions to make it more sustainable.
Vegan: The items are vegan.
Supports the local people: Himal is committed to the Nepalese artisans who make beautiful clothes with natural fibers. Himal ensures that these craftsmen receive a fair wage and that they are always paid (for example in a situation like the covid crisis).
