This face cover is not a substitute for N95 or surgical masks and is not FDA approved. However, use of non-medical masks may help reduce the transmission of viruses in public places where it is difficult to maintain social distance.

Face coverings cannot be returned or exchanged for hygiene reasons. All sales are final.

The inspiration for this face covering, Jean-François Persoz's color manual, Theoretical and practical treatise for printing on fabric, was embraced by French Impressionist artists as a revolutionary landmark in the history of color theory and its practical artistic applications. Presented in the work is a dizzying tour-de-force of a master chemist's intimate knowledge of the creation of color.
