Perfect for blue-eyed asthmatics! If like me, you are finding it difficult to breathe under medical sweaty masks or bandanas wrapped around too many times (oops), I definitely recommend Acala Stem- The little triangle you see is rare fabric made from the stem of a lotus flower. Amazingl It's production requires no water, gas, oil or electricity and is the most sacred & ecological fabric in the world. Plus I can actually breathe.
Blue Jean Lotus Microfibre face covering
Our most popular and highly sought-after face covering due to its breathability and unique lotus fabric panel. This Acala Stem face covering is designed with 2 outer layers of organic cotton, and the inner panel 100% pure lotus. The fibres are soft, silky, light-weight, ultra-breathable and super absorbent.
Creating a static charge, thanks to its 200,000 fibres per inch of fabric, the lotus microfibre filters over 4 times more than ordinary cloth. The lotus microfibres absorb 7 times their weight in water, dry 3 times faster than cotton, are smooth on the skin and hypoallergenic.*
The Production process of our lotus fabric requires no water, electricity, oil or gas to produce, preserving our planet's precious resources, making it the most ecological fabric in the world. We also use Dystar dye to create our signature colours, which is certified Ecotex and contains no heavy metals.
For centuries eastern philosophers have documented the Lotus stem (also known as lotus root) and its symbolic importance. The health benefits of lotus root are endless. We encourage you to undergo your own research in discovering its incredible benefits for the body and soul.
Since the 5th century this magnificent lotus fabric has only been worn by Buddhist monks and the highest royalty, until now.
