BLACK ITALIAN LINEN 3.0
the BEST black mask
The BEST black mask on the market. Our apologies for being so bold, but with so many black masks out there, we were surprised that our clients were pleading for black masks. Turns out, folks like our masks best, so naturally they want their go-to black mask to have all the features of their fave AKSF masks. We didn't want to disappoint, so we sourced our linen from Italy for its superior quality and breathability. We also love that linen is inherently antimicrobial, perfect for a face mask. So pardon our confidence, but we're pretty sure you're going to LOVE this mask. It not only looks good on you, it's sustainably made for mother nature, too.
Our Let’s Face It 3.0 version is a reusable and sustainable face mask thoughtfully crafted using 3 layers of natural fabrics selected for their filtering ability and breathability. With 3 unisex sizes designed to cover your face leaving room to breathe and talk.
- The mini is an XS/S face mask ideal for petite adult faces, teens, and kids as young as 4 years old. It measures approx 8" wide x 5.5" high. (Amy is wearing the mini)
- The standard is a medium face mask that fits most average sized adults. It measures approx 9" wide x 6.5" high.
- The max is a very generous L/XL mask for big and tall adults with movie star sized faces - and guys with beards. It measures approx 10" wide x 7.5" high.
All sizes are made with fabric ties that loop around your ears and fasten at the base of your neck for comfort and ease of use. We've also added bartacks to hold the wired edge in place along the upper mask to contour your nose, minimizing the flow of air out of your mask, and helping prevent the spread of germs.
Comfortable, adjustable, and elastic free - our masks can easily be worn around your neck for those in-between times when you don’t need to cover your face. The goal is to keep your mask to yourself - so it's there when you need it.
Thanks for caring and wearing our sustainably made masks.
It's the peace you'll wear all the time.

DISCLAIMER: This face mask is NOT intended for medical use. It’s a personal use mask to help deter the spread of germs including viruses like COVID-19. It may also help to filter out particles in the air, but the effectiveness of a fabric face mask is highly dependent on how the mask is worn, how it fits the face, the materials used, and how the wearer handles the mask. We recommend that you take a look at the CDC guidelines to get the best use out of your cloth face mask. We believe that wearing a cloth face mask in combination with social distancing, washing your hands often and thoroughly, and avoiding touching your face can help minimize the spread of germs, especially during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
I was so relieved to find these beautifully made, comfortable and attractive masks, in which the wearers’ needs were balanced with those of the environment. In the heaviest part of the pandemic I wore them over a paper mask for double protection, but even on their own they provide good coverage. As my spouse - a health care provider - and I expect to continue to mask on airplanes and public transport, we hope Amy and Co will continue to make these wonderful masks! I’ve ordered extras but am anxious they will eventually wear out and I won’t be able to get more!
Thanks for your thoughtful review, Melody! We really appreciate your ongiong support. As the pandemic wanes and demand lessens, it becomes unsustainable for us to meet production minimums, so it's unlikely we'll continue as mask makers. But one never really knows. In the meantime, I'm glad you've stocked up on masks while we have them in inventory. It's been a wonderful journey navigating all of this together. Stay happy and healthy!
My partner has to wear a mask for 12 hours a day (even not during Covid time) & these mask are now his go to! We even ordered backups for the future.
We're so glad to hear that our masks are working well for your partner, Maja! Thanks for sharing your experience! We really appreciate your support. - Amy et al
It is so nice not to be looking for your mask. They are comfortable and fit well. I bought one and then ordered 2 more
Awww! Thanks so much, Gina! We really appreciate you!
These are my favorite masks. I work for a multi-speciality clinic and wear it all day. I have many complements about the look and the ease of wearing it. I highly recommend your mask. Thank you!
Thank you, Gail! This means a lot to us!
These masks are my absolute favorite, I have one in each color and pattern (and I keep buying more). They fit so well and make me feel completely protected. I love that they tie around your neck so they have a resting place when they aren't being used. My daughter wears them all day at school without any issues. I can't recommend them enough! More colors, patterns & (mini) sizes please! Can't wait for a restock.
