Product Overview

"The Frontliner""
This 4 layer reusable face mask was designed by Emmy Ember for Vivant Vintage.

Item Specs

The outer layer features a made in USA bandana. The inner two layers are made of a non woven polypropelene material which is similar to the material used in surgical masks. The final layer is a cotton lining that includes a pocket for an additional filter, or can be flipped up for additional air flow. 

The Frontliner features a contoured design that cups under the chin. The chin dart and elastic create a seal under the chin which makes for a very snug, comfortable fit. The contoured design provides more protection than the average mask because there are no gaps on the sides where unfiltered air can slip in or escape.

The pleats expand to create space around the mouth so mask doesn’t shift or break seal while talking or breathing. The nose wire creates a secure fit so the mask doesn’t ride up. There is an elastic band that goes over the head and a tie that ties behind the neck. This is great for people who have to wear a surgical mask underneath that goes over the ears, or anyone who wants to wear earrings with their mask!

We have received lots of positive feedback about the comfort of The Frontliner Mask, formerly known as The Medic, and think it's great for people who have to wear a mask for long hours, picky kids and anyone who wants style, protection and comfort!

Wear and Care

Before wearing your mask, toss it in a pot of boiling water or laundry to sterilize it. Place your hand inside the mask and expand your hand to expand the pleats fully. Tug on the lining so it lays nice and flat. Pinch the nose wire so the mask dries in a shape that will be contoured to your face. Either lay the mask flat to dry on a clean surface or hang it on a hook.  We pre-wash all of our materials but recommend that you wash the mask yourself before use. 

DO NOT PUT MASKS IN THE DRYER! It causes the elastic to wear out much faster (with our masks, and all masks) and will compromise the longevity and shape of the mask. You'll be much happier with your mask if it is just hung on a hook to dry. If you need your mask dried in a rush, use a hiardryer to speed up the drying process.

Once your mask is dry, place it on your face. Reshape the nose wire if needed. Place the elastic either high on your head or at ear level whichever is more comfortable. Tie the ties behind your neck. 
 We are using recommended guidelines to create a mask that is PROTECTIVE, this is not a medical grade mask. 
 We’ve gone through great efforts to try to design the best mask, “The Frontliner” we have seen available for personal use on the market. This is not of the quality of an N95 mask, nor a surgical mask. 2 layers of cotton minimum has been recommended. Our mask has 2 layers of cotton, with two layers non woven interfacing and a pocket to add an additional filter. We recommend using coffee filters, HVAC air filters, or vacuum bags to make your own filters.
We are designers, not scientists, but we think we did a pretty damn good job. Any and all feedback is welcome.
