The UK government now advice that non-medical cloth face coverings should be worn in enclosed spaces, such as on public transport, to help defend you from the coronavirus.

While gov.co.uk has provided instructions on how you can make a suitable face covering out of a T-shirt, scarf or bandana from home. You may not feel comfortable, or don’t have the materials needed to create your own. 

Therefore, numerous independent sellers and high street stores including ASOS, Anthropologie, Etsy and Just Hype are now creating non-medical face masks.

Popular Spanish clothing brand, Mango, is the latest label to launch its own designs as part of its new ‘face masks and gels’ section.

Floral Reusable Homologated Mask | £12 Mango

Currently the label has three styles available: plain black, floral and animal print. Each is made from polyester and has Mango’s ‘MNG’ logo emblazoned in the corner.

Mango’s non-medical masks are reusable for up to 10 washes and allow breathability and filtration.

Unlike other masks, which are created with elastic ear loops, Mango’s have adjustable fabric ear loops so that it’s easier to adapt the mask to your own facial contours. 

The designs have been created in a single size suitable for women and men. There will also be three different sizes for children.

With some independent sellers charging up to £25 per mask, Mango’s £12 price tag is one of the more affordable options. Other budget-friendly high street choices include Anthropologie, where you can buy a single mask for £8, or ASOS, who sell two for £12. 

The newly uncovered ‘face masks and gels’ section on Mango’s website suggests that there will be many more useful product launches by the brand in the weeks to come.
