Masks for Brazil Brazil has become one of the epicenters for COVID-19, as hospitals there are unable to keep up with the need. At the same time, the country faces political unrest and uncertainty. When you purchase a Mask for Brazil that is handmade by Mercado Global artisans, you are supporting the production of two masks – one for you and one that we will donate to a community in Brazil that is in urgent need of protection. Each Mercado Global mask is one-of-a-kind —they’re highly effective, eco-friendly, designed for comfort, and provide critical income to Indigenous communities in rural Guatemala. These masks are meant to provide protection against the transmission of water droplets and other airborne particles. They are machine washable and can be reused daily time and time again. The Personal Face Mask is shaped to fit comfortably over the nose and chin, and secures around the head with elastic bands. Outer layer features a thick layer of handwoven cotton fabric, and the second inner layer features soft linen cotton to provide optimal protection and comfort against the face.
