Get to know us
Saving Face. Co was founded by two friends, Isa Crossland Stone and Sophie Alais, in answer to the far-reaching humanitarian impacts of Covid-19 and with a mission to create a face mask with a cause.
In our commitment to grow this company close to home, all our production is done in Sydney - our fabric is printed in Marrickville & our masks are sewn in Cabramatta. Our Artist Collaboration Collection features commissioned designs by Australian artists Prawn Cocktail, Bella Meagher and Tara Chandra.
Artist Collaboration Collection
One key mission of ours is to support and celebrate the work of young, local artists. We set out to offer elevated alternatives to a newly necessary accessory, and hence our masks were born - featuring the artwork of Tara Chandra, Bella Meagher and Prawn Cocktail. By wearing one of our masks you to are taking part in our mission to support local artists!
Asylum Seeker Center
The Asylum Seekers Centre is commited to providing practical and personal support for people seeking asylum. In addition to continuing their mission during the Covid-19 crisis, they work to assist and meet the changing needs of Asylum Seekers who have largely been excluded from governmental Covid-19 support. In order to contribute to these efforts, we donate $3 for every mask sold to the centre.
Our masks are crafted with materials that have both the environment and your comfort in mind. Each mask is designed with a moldable nose piece to ensure a well-fitting and air-tight mask. We use a tight-weave 100% cotton outer layer and a breathable bamboo jersey inner layer to create a winningly sustainable and biodegradable combination. Bamboo material is naturally hypo-allergenic, antibacterial and thermal-regulating, so it’s extra soft and breathable when you’re #savingface all day long.
Between the inner and outer layers of our masks is a pocket for inserting your single-use PM2.5 Activated Carbon Filters for additional filtration as required. For the best hygiene protocol, we advise the disposal of each PM2.5 filter after 24 hours of use. Each purchase of a Saving Face. Co mask includes one complimentary single-use PM2.5 filter.
It is important to note that Saving Face. Co does not produce medical-grade face masks. Rather, our fabric face masks are designed to provide protection against hand-to-face contact and to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 in public settings where social distancing practices may be compromised. This aim is in accordance with up-to-date recommendations by the CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention).

Friends with the Planet
In order to care for our planet during this time, we see it as vital that every aspect of our products and service is as eco-friendly as possible. Disposable, single-use face masks stand to be a major culprit of pollution, and the choice to wear a reusable fabric facemask is one which protects the Earth and our oceans. Our masks are reusable and crafted from biodegradable materials in order to ensure a minimal footprint. We are proud to use 100% biodegradable shipping packaging.
Remember: The No.1 safest option is to physically distance. No.2 is to #saveface and wear a mask!
