Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum Face Mask

In Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, a mock-Latin joke scratched into the wall is just enough to keep Offred from despair - "Nolite te bastardes carborundorum" - Don't let the bastards grind you down.  A double-thickness cotton mask with a pocket for an optional layer of tissue; the adjustable cord loops around the back of the wearer's head, and places no pressure on the ears.

Please note: This is not a piece of PPE or medical equipment. Like all fabric face masks, the intention is to catch droplets and stop the wearer from breathing directly into someone else's face, as a general contribution to public safety (according to advice at the time of writing).

  • 100% Cotton jersey in two layers.
  • Mask measures 22cm x 13cm laid flat; soft woven cord ties at back of head.
