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.
