Luxury Face Masks in South Africa
Being in lockdown in South Africa due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have seen a massive incline of face mask production. Everyone with a sewing machine has been making a face mask and we have seen even more DIY masks being sported on people’s faces. There are some fashion brands that have also begun to make face masks. The purpose is to create face masks that saves lives but to make it fashion at the same time. We have listed a few brands that you might like.
RichFactory is a Johannesburg-based fashion house that is producing face masks in African Print in different sizes, as well as masks for children.

My mum (the girls Ouma) was in JHB locked down with us and she was really concerned about the girls safety and freedom while playing so she spent some time online and in YouTube looking for innovative ways for to keep the girls safe while giving then a little freedom especially for our morning walks. So after many samples and different shields options (trust me we’ve gone through like 5 different types to find a shield that works) we’ve produced these shields and bucket hats with removable plastic shields for kids. Both shields & bucket hats are available online and today we ship off about 100 units to Botswana (I’ll share the distributors details in Bots once they are ready) . We’ve got plain colours for school as well like Navy, black, red, maroon and khaki and you can place orders for mass production too. For mass orders only please contact email@example.com and for personal shopping you can do so online. Love and light. Rina, Ouma and the girls… who by the way, are wondering if they are famous after all the pics I took of them. “Am I a famous model now aunty!”
2. Inga Atelier
Inga Atelier masks are made from superior leather, easy to breathe and reusable. Their high-end leather bags are more expensive than their masks, so thankfully you won’t have to pay too much to walk around in style with their face masks.

4. Loin Cloth & Ashes
Loin Cloth & Ashes is an African based fashion and lifestyle brand for individuals who seek a modern, functional and relevant design with a neo-African point of view. Their masks have boomed as their pattern is unusual and there aren’t many masks that look like this.
4. Akese Stylelines
Now this designer is not South African but we wanted to throw her into this list as we love her take on fashion. We have not seen face masks like this anywhere.
