Reusable Cloth Face Masks You Will Actually Want to Keep Wearing. How to Wear a Face Mask.

Covid-19 Safe Reusable Cloth Face Masks You Will Actually Want to Keep Wearing

This post may contain paid links. If you make a purchase through links on our site, we may earn a commission.

Our Covid-19-safe reusable cloth face masks are masks that you will actually want to keep wearing, featuring fun images from our culinary travels, from chilli peppers to palm trees. They’re machine-washable, fit snugly, are dual-layered so you can insert disposable filters, and you can buy them from our Society6 shop and support our work here on Grantourismo and our Cambodia Cookbook and Culinary History.

Buy one of our reusable cloth face masks from our Grantourismo shop on Society6 and you’ll not only have a mask that you will actually want to keep wearing, you’ll be supporting the work we do here on Grantourismo to create inspiring travel and food content and you’ll also be supporting our epic, original, first-of-its-kind Cambodia Culinary History and Cookbook project, which you can learn more about on Patreon.

Our reusable cloth face masks feature fun graphic images photographed by Terence Carter on our culinary travels. There are chilli peppers, palm trees, smoked fish, and squid drying in the sun from Siem Reap and Battambang in Cambodia. There’s also a famous Bangkok Chinatown street food scene, a quintessential image of enchanting Hoi An in Vietnam, and one of my favourite shots of camels in the desert at Wadi Rum, Jordan.

Made to order by Society6 team, these reusable cloth face masks are not only cool-looking, but they are machine-washable and well-made. They also fit well thanks to the pleated front which expands to snugly cover your mouth, the poly fabric used, and the flat woven elastic loops that comfortably fit behind the ears. They are dual-layered with an easily accessible inner pocket so you can insert your own disposable filters, making them eco-friendly too.

If you needed an extra incentive, other than supporting our work here on Grantourismo and the first-of-its-kind Cambodia Cookbook and Culinary History we’re working on, Society6 donates a small portion of all sales to help the COVID-19 recovery effort. Also see our suggestions for gifts for food lovers for Christmas, birthdays or coming out of lockdown.

Reusable Cloth Face Masks You Will Actually Want to Keep Wearing

As the escalation of COVID-19 cases around the world has made clear, wearing a face mask is absolutely essential to minimise the risk of catching the coronavirus. And if we have to wear face masks, we may as well have fun with them.

I firmly believe that if we think of face masks as a fashion accessory as much as a protective measure, in the same way we think of sun hats and sunglasses, then we may have some influence over those who refuse to wear them and are putting others at risk.

So if you’re going to purchase one of our reusable cloth face masks, why not consider buying a few to match with different outfits or wear on different occasions? The chilli pattern is perfect for the markets or a spot of grocery shopping, the palm trees are terrific for the beach.

Wear the Bangkok Chinatown mask to your local Thai eatery or the Hoi An townscape mask to your favourite Vietnamese restaurant, and you might get some special attention from the staff. Or why not give them to them as end of year ‘thank you’ gifts?

Christmas is not so far off… we have more than reusable cloth face masks in our Grantourismo shop on Society6, too. We have tote bags, carry pouches, notebooks, iPhone and laptop cases and skins, coffee mugs for home, travel mugs for when you’re on the road, and can coolers for barbecues and picnics.

For entertaining, we have coasters and serving trays, a very cool fold-up stool for picnics, camping or the beach, as well as side tables and bar stools. In the home décor department, there are wall clocks, floor cushions, scatter cushions, pillows, and shower curtains.

We’ll be adding more series of images to our Grantourismo shop collection too soon, however, do let us know if there are any images on our site that you’d love to see as a Society6 product and we’re happy to create something that meets your needs.

Like so many freelance photographers and writers around the world, especially those working in food and travel – two industries hard-hit by the global pandemic – we lost all our income, projects and clients back in March when the world shutdown, and Grantourismo lost precious hotel affiliate commissions that had provided us with a small regular income.

Every purchase you make on our Society6 Grantourismo online store helps support us, our cat, and our work here. So if you’ve loved a recipe that you use regularly or you found a destination guide or itinerary helpful on your travels, and you’d like to see us continue to create food and travel inspiration and information here, please consider purchasing something from our Grantourismo online shop.

And if you’re not in a position to buy anything (don’t worry, we get it), please do share this post or a link to our online store with your friends, family, neighbours, and colleagues. While they might have plenty of face masks, maybe they could use a wall clock or coffee mug or two.
