Corona-fighter-masks

Dear old and new customers, welcome to my blog! Due to the Corona crisis and the shortage of masks on the market to avoid the spreading of the viruses, I am here to help you and the community to bring some protection to the streets.

Since Monday the shops are reopened in Austria. But with some rules, like the obligatory use of masks and keeping distance between people. I guess this will be the “new normal” for many months (years?) to come, until we get a new vacination against the Covid-19. Also to have fabric masks will help us to be more sustainable. All the masks I am offering you are made with pure cotton, are very confortable and practical to use, can be washed in the washing machine (better inside a net to protect the elastic band, 30-40°C), and hot ironed after dried – avoid that the elastic bands do not melt.

And the best news for people who use glasses like me: the polyester masks that we get in the shops are impossible to use together with glasses, the breath condensates on the lenses and you can not see anything (it’s just with me?). Today I was going to shop with the one I sewed myself made of cotton and it was perfect. Really comfortable. The glasses fit steady on top of them and it doesn´t fog the lenses.

The masks are sewed with a double layer fabric and they are available in 3 different sizes (male/female/child). You attach it to your face very quickly and easily by passing the elastic band behind your ears, and adjusting it on your face by pulling the fabric to opposite direction up and down.

I have to remind you that only medical masks with special air filters protect you from getting the virus, those masks I make are just to protect the others if you need to cough or sneeze. They do NOT protect you against getting the sickness yourself. But if everybody uses masks the spread of the epidemy will slow down, letting some time to our hospitals to recover 💞. Stay safe, use masks, keep distance and carry on.

New at the shops :)

I have been using mine for some weeks now, and I totally aproved it ;o)

Because is made by fabric, it is very light and do not take any space more than the one of the sunglasses/glasses themselves. And doing so can be used with all kind of bags, including the very small ones. Inside there is a very soft fabric to avoid scratches on the lens. Dear customers and friends, there you have the Sunglasses cases new modell, your new companion for the summer.

Sisters

Those 2 cases, one for a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, and the other for a Digital Camera Nikon Coolpix L27, they both found together a new home in Berlin, the beloved city! How happy I was to send them overthere? SEHR!

iPad/Kindle padded case

To show you all how is the easiest way to close the iPad/Kindle case in Limabaum´s Dawanda shop I made a video for you. Please have in mind I was holding the camera with one hand and filming with the other, it is much easier to open it up if you have your both hands holding the case.

I hope I can help the clients that bought the case to handle it better. I could not upload the video straight to the blog (sorry, I will fix that!), so please take a look into Limabaum´s Facebook page, here:

to build a home

this melancholic song brings me back somehow to childhood, maybe the climbing tree scene, or the deep root idea of home on my mind.
