Masks for Mexico

With some of the highest rates of COVID-19 in Latin America, Mexico has been one of the countries hit hardest by the virus. Cases are being unreported by the thousands and hospitals are overwhelmed. 

When you purchase a Mask for Mexico that is handmade by Mercado Global artisans, you are supporting the production of two masks – one for you and one that we will donate to a community in Mexico that is in urgent need of protection.

Each Mercado Global mask is one-of-a-kind —they’re highly effective, eco-friendly, designed for comfort, and provide critical income to Indigenous communities in rural Guatemala.

These masks are meant to provide protection against the transmission of water droplets and other airborne particles. They are machine washable and can be reused daily time and time again.

 

 

The Story Behind Our Masks

At Mercado Global, we invest in people - our supporters like you, Indigenous artisans, and the communities that are at the heart of what we stand for. Your purchases and donations have already provided thousands of masks to essential workers on the frontlines of the pandemic, but now with our Masks Where They’re Needed Most campaign, you can choose where your donated mask will end up in the hands of someone in need, completely free of charge.

In the early stages of the pandemic, we worked closely with our artisans to quickly shift from producing fashion accessories to protective masks that are FDA compliant and sustainably made. Each mask has been handmade by one of Mercado Global’s trained artisans – Indigenous women living in rural Guatemala – who will continue receiving a living wage and critical support.

While factories in Guatemala remain closed or a high-risk for employees, our innovative home-based, high volume production model has ensured our artisans can stay safe and self-quarantine.

Wear Instructions

Wash your hands prior to putting on your mask and after removing it. Pull the bottom band over your head, then glide the mask up over your face and secure the second band behind your head. Make sure the mask fits snug on your face, minimizing any gaps. If the mask is too loose, knot the elastic bands at the ends for a tighter fit. Avoid touching your face or adjusting your mask unnecessarily once it’s on.
