At the early stages of the Covid-19 breakout, the question was to wear a face mask or not. Now, at this stage, it’s pretty safe to say that face masks are A MUST.

And the question of whether using a fabric face mask is as effective as using the medical or surgical ones naturally evolved as well. After a little research, we came to the conclusion that fabric face masks are indeed useful in limiting the spreading of the virus and more readily available for the non-health workers.

HOWEVER, this is completely up to you to decide whether you want to invest in a reusable face mask or a disposable one. On that note, here are some brands you might want to check out if you go with the first option!

Zed Art Corner

Zed Art Corner is amongst the first brands to announce the production of reusable and sustainable fabric-based masks; they even replace the regular elastic loops with straps for it looks better and for sustainability purposes. Their African tribal prints and fabrics were seen on stars like Ahmed Magdy and Mariam El Khosht!
