Face masks are becoming the must-have accessory of the year. Have you thought about getting a reusable face mask? If you’re not really confident in your sewing skills, you can still order your face masks from small businesses selling their products on the Internet. And since it’s always better to buy local, here is a small selection of shops based in Scotland where you can buy them.
Scottish face masks by Atelier Escapades
Mathilde is a French dressmaker and costume designer who makes pretty face masks in Edinburgh. She makes them following the French organization AFNOR (Association Francaise de Normalization) guidelines as follows:
– 2 or 3 layers of fabric superimposed
– no vertical seam in the middle
– covering chin and nose, and leaving the smallest gap between the mask and the cheeks.
You will find these masks on the Atelier Escapades website for the price of £ 10, as well as jewelry and accessories made of tweed and tartan.

How to wear your face mask?
Please not that these masks are not medical devices and are only intended for everyday use (shopping, taking public transport, etc.)
The mask should cover your nose, mouth and chin. Do not wear them more than 4 hours in a row and wash them at 60 degrees after use.
NB: If you plan to sew your own mask, the model references are available on the AFNOR website.
