“BE SAFE” – SEWING PATTERN
The mask requirement is now official and the demand for masks is enormous. But which makeshift mask fits best, is breathable and easy to wash? A doctor from Berlin has developed a mask that fits perfectly and is washable up to 60 degrees. The pattern is called “Be safe”.
The Berlin doctor made the pattern available to us to use. Kristina Kollwer, fashion designer from Nordhorn, sewed the pattern for us as a sample and Franzi has already tried the mask in real use and finds that it is super comfortable to wear. The Berlin doctor recommends pipe cleaners for the nose bridge. This is a little softer on the nose and doesn’t pinch that much.
The nose bridge and the elastic band can be easily replaced. The bar can be removed to wash the mask. We used Freudenberg’s fleece (100% recycled PES) as the inner fleece. It can be washed up to 60 degrees, which is completely sufficient.
