Ready to go out to the shops and stick it to all those anti-maskers? With this mask you'll wipe the smile off their faces.

This anarchism design features the famous A and O symbol daubed onto a rather hastily painted red and black background. (Let's face it, if you're an anarchist you don't stand on ceremony.)

Black and red colours were used by Italian anarchists as early as 1864, and diagonally divided red and black flags were popularised as anarchist symbols during the Spanish Civil War. The letters signify ‘anarchism’ and ‘order'. Although the symbol first gained currency in Spain in the late 19th century, it became particularly well known when it was taken up by the British anarcho-punk movement in the 1970s.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says face masks should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

It is essential that wearers of cloth face masks still observe social distancing and wash their hands regularly, and cloth masks cannot guarantee protection for the wearer.

Please note: this is NOT a medical grade surgical or N95 face mask, so purchase of this mask will not reduce the supply of medical masks which should be prioritised for health workers.

This colourful fabric face mask is made with 3 pleated layers of 200 gsm cotton and measures approx 21.5cm x 13.5cm. The middle layer is made of a close woven blue fabric with hydrophobic and antibacterial finish. Digital printing on high quality, natural fabric using reactive inks, means it will not only have excellent wash fastness and colour vibrancy but also the inks conform to relevant standards meaning there are no harmful chemicals being breathed in. The mask is attached with 2 elastic loops measuring 25 x 0.8cm which fit round the ears and which may be adjusted using the 2 toggles, allowing for flexibility and comfort. Also comes with a flexible metal nose piece for a close fit, which should be removed before washing. Spare nose piece included. Machine or hand wash at 40-60º after each use using detergent to kill any virus. Short spin. Dry naturally, preferably in direct sunlight. As this is a personal hygiene product, we cannot accept returns.

    Anarchist Face Mask

    Posted by D Bacon on 15th Mar 2022

    I bought my first one during 2020 as I thought the very oxymoron mask made me giggle if nothing else. They wash very well & quick to dry. The ear toggles can be a little tricky but once you find the right comfort for you they never moved.

    Love this - it sits better than an of my other masks with three ply, and love showing my punk credentials wearing this!
