Choose Face Masks & Filters
Reusable Face Masks from Solopress
Face coverings have been made mandatory in England and Scotland on public transport and in shops, while Northern Ireland and Wales have recommended them in public spaces.
This follows a recommendation from the World Health Organisation (WHO) who moved to "advise governments to encourage its citizens to wear fabric face masks in public areas to help stop the spread of coronavirus."
Our range of reusable face masks are designed and developed in-house and manufactured in the UK. By ordering our face masks, you won’t be tapping into stocks of medical-grade masks that need to be preserved for healthcare workers.
All our face masks are classed as non-medical and are not designed for, tested or certified as PPE. However, they are reusable and machine washable, which makes them perfect for people who are working and operating in office, retail and public spaces.
Our protective masks are made from 100% polyester, which helps prevent them tearing. They also come with adjustable straps, so you can alter them to fit your face securely and comfortably.
Our professional face masks also can be ordered with filters, which is placed between the two layers of the mask.
We have also launched our #MyMaskMyWay range which feature 12 designs submitted in a national competition. The designs available for sale received the highest number of votes in a public vote, with 10% of the revenue being paid to the members of the design community who created them.
You can select one of three face mask designs for free and fast UK delivery. Or upload your own design for delivery within five days. You can bulk buy face masks up to 1,000 per order.
Once you receive your order, please wash before use at a 60 °C heat. Always remove any filters before washing.
Our face masks are made from tear-resistant, 100% polyester. This allows us to print on the fabric with either our pre-designed patterns or your own artwork with our personalised face masks.
Yes, all of our face masks are machine washable. This makes them both reusable and convenient, especially compared to other face mask products, which often require hand washing.

No, our face masks are not classed as being medical-grade or PPE. This is a conscious and deliberate decision on our part, as the stocks of medical face masks need to be saved for those essential healthcare workers.

- Electret air filters
- Vacuum cleaner bags
- Molleton fabric

The integrated pocket in our Professional masks is 110mm long. Please bear this in mind when ordering or making filters externally.
