i unfortunately lost one of my binakol masks and the same day had to order a new one because i love it so much!
These face masks from the Ifugao Nation NGO in Ifugao, northern Philippines are spectacular! The technology and design of the weaving is of very high quality such that the masks not only innovatively highlight customary local designs but also provide extra protection due to the tightly woven fabric. It is also important to remember that by purchasing these masks, one is supporting the local livelihoods of weavers who are primarily women. By shifting their production from household accessories to masks, these women weavers can expand their markets to better enable them to meet their families' subsistence needs. And we have the privilege of wearing dynamically patterned masks.
It’s a little too big for my face! But I have a small head, if the strings were somehow adjustable that would be really helpful.
Love the fabric design as well as thick layers used to create the mask :)
These masks are so well made and are eyecatching that all my friends always compliment them. The choices of colors and the fabric material ensures that its properly snug and never worried of it sliding off.
Gorgeous design, I also have the Black Pinilian to use depending on what I'm wearing. I absolutely love being able to wear my heritage!
I love being able to wear my heritage, I get so many compliments and it's quite comfortable. I do wish I could pinch the nose piece under my glasses, otherwise it's totally perfect. The reusable filters are also great and VERY comfortable. It doesn't feel bulky at all.
Love the texture and the design. I always get compliments and when people ask me where I bought it, I am always so proud to tell them that it is from the Philippines. ❤️
Very soft to the face, was very delighted to receive the resuable filters with my purchase. My one feedback is to tighten around the top of the mask. I find that it drops a bit when I speak
I would love it if you offered a behind-the-head option for the straps in addition to behind-the-ear. I'm afraid my ears are a bit floppy and fold in on themselves too easily.
Love these awesome woven face-masks and supporting the artisans that created them!
Really comfortable and i love it because I am wearing a piece of my heritage
Love this mask!
Love this mask, fits well and looks great!
This is the best-fitting mask I have purchased so far! It is also very comfortable, and the fabric is so beautiful. I am very happy with this purchase.
I love my binakol weave mask— in addition to its beauty, the mask is so well made, nicely stitched all around, lined with a soft fabric, and also an additional fitted filter included!
I really love my mask and I think it adds so much design and beauty to any outfit I wear! The only issue is that the straps for the backing is too big so I have to tie knots on it to fit the size of my head (if that makes sense). It sometimes irritates/hurts my ears but I also have a headband with buttons so that helps alleviate the pain. These are the only masks I have and I love them still I don’t go out too often. It’s also nice that it covers all the right areas
This face mask is absolutely gorgeous. It's very well made and easy to wash. The elastics that go around the ears were slightly large for me, so I attached an extra elastic that goes around my head, this way it fits perfectly and I can let it hang by my neck when I am not using it. It's a quality face mask with a beautiful design. I actually look forward to wearing it when I go out!
Absolutely gorgeous design. I ordered this for my mom who lives in a small town where it is very difficult to find things like face masks, and online orders can take months to arrive. It's so important for elderly people who live in rather remote areas to have these reusable face masks. My mom doesn't have to stress about running out of masks anymore!
Beautiful mask, the pattern is really lovely!
Really amazing quality and the patterns are so gorgeous. The fabric is really soft, the fit is really comfortable, and love that it comes with a re-usable filter.
Beautifully designed and well made. Will proudly wear this mask!
Love my mask - keeping me (and others) safe and healthy while supporting Indigenous weavers AND looking fashionable! What more can I ask for given these challenging circumstances we now find ourselves in?
This mask fits my face perfectly (others have definitely not) and it doesn't fog up my glasses too badly when I wear both, which is a huge bonus! I am immunocompromised so this affords me way more safety if I have to leave the house, and is yet another way I can wear my heritage and share about the Indigenous weaves & Filipinx artisans who made them. Salamat!
Love displaying my culture with the masks!
I have worn my mask twice already and it has been very comfortable. I like how the mask keeps it shape and appreciate the pocket for a filter.
It’s gorgeous and has a very comfy fit. I also love the removable filter, which I noticed had some water resistance to it when I hand washed it.

This is the first mask I’ve purchased that includes a face mask filter. When I tried it on, however, it was too big for my face. After hand washing and air drying it, I decided to give it to my partner, and fortunately, he told me this one fits perfect for him!
The masks I received were beautiful! I had to get one in each design. The elastics attached were longer than expected but I used a mask extender to fix that problem and now it’s a perfect fit! ❤️
