This type of face mask is my favorite design. I like a face mask that has a pointed nose and a better shape around the face. The fabric on this one is so elegant. This mask does not have a pocket or a nose wire. Self-made masks do not replace the effectiveness of a medical-grade filter mask tested in the laboratory. Efficacy is unknown. These masks are intended to limit aerial projections and do not promise to fully protect you from bacterial or viral infections. Thank you so much for shopping, it is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. I am happy to help. Visit my other Etsy shop as well "Cajun Kreations," where I offer tumblers and t-shirts. I'm excited to be getting this new shop off the ground for masks and digital items as well.
