Octavia E. Butler
We've teamed up with @baobabbooks who have given us recommendations of their favourite black, female authors and we've named each mask after one of them. This mask is named after author, Octavia E. Butler.
10% of all revenue made on masks will go to BLM charity 'Trans Housing Coalition', a charity built to help get black, trans women off the streets and into safe housing.
You can read more about the charity here on their website: https://www.transhousingcoalition.org/
Made with red, silky, floral fabric, a silky pink lining & fuchsia frill strap.
Straps sit one over the top of the ear and one underneath and go around the head.
All our masks are also available with either white or black plain elastic that wraps around each ear on request (just pop it in the note section of your order).
Each mask has 3 layers including a filter layer in the middle and is washable & reversible.
Please note that each design is made with deadstock fabric (shop cut-offs, old clothes, curtains etc) & therefore is only available until we run out of fabric!
A key figure in the world of science fiction, Octavia E Butler is not one to be missed. An important novel in both the science fiction genre, as well as black literature, 'Parable of the Sower' deals with key themes of being black within a dystopian setting, as well as fascinating theoretical concepts. Also check out her novel 'Kindred,' which incorporates both time travel and slave narratives together.
