As face masks become more and more a part of our daily lives, the protective gear has evolved into a fashion accessory. Dapper Villains has created an option that raises the bar in style while still compiling with recommendations from the CDC. The mask is made from an outer layer of tight-weave 2-ply cotton poplin for a first-line of defense from particles. Absorption-resistant cotton gauze makes up the two inner layers and a black muslin provides a layer of filtration. For added protection, a muslin pocket is placed in front of your mouth to insert extra filter materials. A flexible wire allows for the mask to mold around the nose and adjustable elastic ear loops create a secure, custom fit. Machine washable.

Pencils have been encased in wood since as early as 1560. Breaking away from tradition, Karst ditches the timber with their woodless design. Their pencils are made entirely from 100% pure graphite with a 2B hardness, offering five times more graphite than the standard #2. The unconventional construction leaves room for versatility, allowing the utensil to be sharpened to a point for precise line work or left blunt for shading. Its bulky weight is satisfying to hold and a matte coating helps prevent smudges on fingers.
Each pack contains 5 pencils.
