The Afrimask #2 is one of our earliest products, and we’re proud of its enduring popularity. It’s a story of the many rivers in hot summertime. Dark blue avenues flanked by fronds and reeds baked golden by the hot sun, reminding us that life is a thing of wonderful contrasts; wet and dry, hot and cool.

About our Cloth Face Masks
Our face wear sports such colors and patterns and we’re proud to present them. Each cloth face mask is hand made by Nigerian artisans with 100% wax cotton (Ankara,) promising both excellent quality, comfort to wear, and genuine African tribal patterns to show of your culture.
Every Tribal Wave cloth face mask, like the Afrimask #2, enjoys a double lining for maximum comfort and adjustability. And it can serve as a fine complement to the N95 medical grade face mask.
The Afrimask #2 is designed to fit most faces, to safely suit almost every medical professional across the diaspora.
