The Afrimask #9 is certainly one of our coolest cloth masks. It takes your memory back to old childhood days, wandering the forest during a spring afternoon and looking up through the dense green canopy, with a refreshing breeze making the sun-dappled leaves dance around glimpses of dazzling blue sky.

About our Cloth Face Masks
Our products are so colorful and rich in pattern because, each cloth face mask is masterfully handcrafted by an artisan of Nigeria using 100% wax cotton, also known as Ankara. This comfortable and durable fabric has been used by generations to achieve both superior quality and display traditional African patterns.
Every single one of our Tribal Wave cloth face masks, including the Afrimask #9 sports a double lining for greater comfort and safety. And it can be worn over the N95 medical grade face mask or on its own if you prefer.
Our masks, and the Afrimask #9, are one size-fits-all and can accommodate a wide variety of wearers.

Nothing makes us happier than the colors and one-of-a-kind patterns of our head apparel. The Hupenyu is handmade by artisans in Nigeria out of 100% wax cotton, also known as Ankara, which not only best captures the vibrancy of our patterns, but is also comfortable and durable to wear.

About our Scrub Caps
As a Tribal Wave medical bouffant, the Hupenyu includes a silky soft satin lining for proper hair care during long shifts. Other fabrics like cotton will absorb the oils of your hair and generate heat through friction. This can result in damage such as breakage and loss of shine. The wrong head covering material can cause hair loss. Satin can aid in preventing that because moisture is retained when satin touches the hair follicles. Satin is also known to keep hair from overheating or drying out, even under the toughest conditions.
The Hupenyu is crafted in sizes appropriate to both short and long hair of any style, to accommodate for any worker across the diaspora. It's our pleasure to bring to your our medical bouffants, possessed of the most striking African patterns and crafted for the most comfortable fit.
