The linen material we chose is densely woven together for tight but naturally light protection per CDC guidelines. It is layered over 100% organic cotton poplin for even more protection.
Our Zenbu tight-weave European Linen Masks include a dart at the sides for a closer fit. The Zenbu is available in Regular size or our Petite size. Pleases take a look at our fit guide if you don't know which shape is best for your face.
Our Zenbu Masks have two elastic ear straps with rubber adjusters on both sides of the mask to wrap securely behind each ear. We recommend the Ear Band Masks if you are looking for a mask option that easily and quickly comes off and on. This is a good option if you want a mask that doesn't interfere with your hair and the back of your head. For a similar style with Over Head straps that can also be worn around the neck like a lanyard please take a look at our Anshin Organic Cotton Over Head.
Our luxury-grade European Linen masks are handmade in Los Angeles from premium tight-woven Belgian linen chosen for the density of the weave and quality of the fiber. Our linen is imported from Belgium which is known as one of the highest-quality flax because of its climate and soil conditions. The material is dyed under regulated eco-friendly practices in the USA. These masks are lined with 100% Organic cotton poplin.
Linen is a natural fiber made from flax and considered one of the most high-performance and sustainable materials on the planet. We chose linen because of the many amazing properties that make it ideal for a face mask. It is comfortable, breathable, naturally antimicrobial, durable, and easy to clean. Additionally, linen it is naturally highly absorbent, meaning it can absorb a high percentage of its own weight in water without feeling wet, helping to keep your face dry.
We have proceeded with the design and development of our face masks like we do everything else - with endless research & testing to execute a high-quality product we are happy to put our name on.
