#WolfordCares

You. Us. Stronger together.



As the pandemic continues to impact society globally, we are trying to do our part to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Since March, part of our production has been rearranged to put our textiles' expertise to good use, creating masks.

Our personal use Care Masks are non-medical, come in different materials and designs, all provide full coverage of the nose and mouth while minimizing moisture’s build up. Their double-layered high-quality fabric makes breathing easy, while adaptable aluminium nose-wires ensure a snug fit. Highly elastic, extra-thin bands fit gently around the ears to secure the mask in place.

Non-medical, fabric masks are advised for use by the general public as part of a comprehensive approach, including social distancing, improving ventilation, washing hands, covering sneezes, and coughs. For more, please read the WHO indication here:

Wearing a mask is about more than just caring for your own health. It shows you care for the health of others. Please join us as we take precautions to reduce the impact of the pandemic. We all have to play our part to overcome this challenge, but together we can bend the curve and positively impact our communities' health.

A highly effective plasma-hydrophobic finishing of the material prevents from any moisture ingress. The surface is completely moisture-repellent. Before packaging the masks are treated with a special UV light that kills bacteria, viruses and germs.

    2.
    Are Wolford Care Masks comfortable to wear?
    As with all our products quality and comfort is most important to us.

    3.
    Can the Care Masks be reused?
    Of course. Our masks are washable at 60°C and therefore reusable multiple times.

    4.
    Do Wolford Care Masks have a certification?
    As textile accessories, our Care Masks are made to support our employees worldwide as well as our consumers during this challenging time. They are not a medical device.

    5.
    Washing and reusing our Care Masks
    We suggest all our masks offered to be washed frequently.

    Classic Mask

    The mask is washable at 60°C and therefore reusable but should not be ironed. We suggest washing the mask at 40°C or 60°C before wearing it for the first time, to prevent possible color stains on the skin.

    Silk Masks

    Have to be washed according to the care instructions: hand wash with a soft detergent in cold water. They should not be ironed or bleached. This procedure will not provide a re-sterilization of the mask. To be completely germ free you need to replace the mask regularly with a new model or place it under UV light for a few minutes.

    Please adhere to the care instructions printed on the packaging of our masks. Please refrain from any home treatments (e.g. freezing, baking, microwaving, boiling water, disinfectant spray or using bleach), as all these procedures are not qualified to kill the germs and re-sanitize the masks.

    6.
    Care Masks origin
    Our Classic Masks (91% polyester, 9% elastane) were the first to be developed and produced in our facilities in Europe. As we were aware that our Classic Masks could be too heavy for warm temperatures, we looked for lighter solutions, so we decided to produce soft and elegant Silk Masks. The Silks Masks are “Made in China". We have selected the best Chinese mask producer that uses the highest quality silk, in strict adherence to our quality and ethical standards.
