SisterWorks have created a face mask that satisfies the requirements issued by DHHS. Our new masks are made in Victoria (Melbourne and Bendigo), consist of one external layer of water repellent fabric, one middle layer of poly-cotton, and one inner layer of 100% cotton fabric.
Our DHHS masks are super light, breathable and perfect to wear all day long. The Australian government advised that face masks are effective in reducing the transmission of COVID-19. The Department of Human Services (DHHS) then issued a guideline of making reusable cloth masks.
These masks serve as a barrier to protect you, your loved ones and the community from transmission of COVID-19. These masks are washable and reusable, which is more economical than the disposal masks and more importantly, reduces waste.
This is not a medical device but may serve as a protective barrier for various daily and occasional activities.
Shipping available to major cities (Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Tasmania…) and anywhere else in Australia.
