Our Mayflower Hug Face Mask does exactly that: it gives your face a soft hug, not a squeeze! Thanks to stretchy fabric and soft flat elastic that goes all the way around and ‘cups’ your face; say goodbye to gaps or wiring across your nose. No more harsh elastics either and no more steamed up glasses!

Our 3ply masks are handmade with a soft cotton inner layer and washable at 60 degrees; they are extremely comfortable. Printed with vegetable inks, they feature our vintage Mayflower Stamps design.  For more details on the design, check our Mayflower Stamps Tea Towels.

Southampton is at the heart of the Mayflower story, when in the summer of 1620 the Mayflower and the Speedwell convened in Southampton. Here they finalised their journey plans and sourced all the provisions they would need for their long crossing of the Atlantic. The Pilgrims (then known as ‘Saints’) embarked both ships in Southampton, near where West Quay currently stands. The ships departed on August 15th and made a further, technical stop in Plymouth.

Our Mayflower Hug Face Mask s are printed and handmade in London & Southampton and available in  XS / M / L sizes.
