IN REGARDS TO COVID-19 VIRUS, KARLACOLA WOULD LIKE TO REITERATE TO EVERYONE THAT YOUR SAFEST OPTION IS TO STAY HOME AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND SELF ISOLATE.
Our masks are NOT medical grade masks. “They’re 100% cotton, washable, reusable, but not medical grade.” If you go ahead and purchase one of our masks, you understand and accept knowledge (as per our Terms and Conditions page) that we are not claiming that these are medical grade.
Masks are a double sided 100% cotton face mask made with random KarlaCola fabric, with elastic on the sides. Because this is a new idea to us these marks are currently made to order and we are asking for your patience while we make these up in one standard size. ALL of our masks are handmade, hand cut and hand ironed, which means masks will vary in size slightly. The print on the mask will also not run in any one particular direction. We are working as fast as we can to make these as best as we can and get them out into the community as fast as we can.
In regards to fit, our masks fit a 10 year old and then up to an adult head size. But this is all dependant on each individual head size.
****PLEASE NOTE - it is very important to understand that we are not claiming that these masks will stop you from getting Covid-19 (coronavirus) or getting sick in general. KarlaCola is not responsible for anyone that gets sick who wears or has worn one of our masks. Our masks are not in any means classified as 'Personal Protective Equipment' (PPE). They are simply to reduce your chance of infection, as the CDC has now said wearing homemade masks can be suitable for those that are in public and do NOT have the virus. If you have the virus these are NOT enough protection and the advice is to self isolate immediately.
Masks need to be applied with clean hands washed in HOT soapy water. After removing mask, please wash immediately in hot soapy water (hang to dry or tumble dry). Masks need to be washed every time they are taken off or the very least DAILY. Please do not touch the mask while out in public. It is very important that you take extra precautionary measures on handling the mask before putting it on and after. Please watch the following video:

KarlaCola is aiming to donate as many of these masks a day as possible to our incredible emergency personnel and essential workers, as a HUGE thank you to all of their wonderful work for our country in this crisis.
