Acknowledging the current need for their widespread use, The Greek Ministry of Culture is now marketing fabric facemasks inspired by Ancient Greece so that citizens can stay protected from Covid-19 — while promoting Greek history.
The masks, with patterns featuring iconic images from Greece’s most important periods from its ancient history, will be sold in the shops of all archaeological museum and sites across the country, at a cost of only five euros each.

As we still do not know how much longer they will be an integral part of our lives, it’s certainly best to buy masks that we like and may actually enjoy wearing, and that can serve as conversation starters as well.
The comfortable fabric masks are more environmentally friendly to boot.
Certainly, it is also hoped that we will not be wearing them forever, and the items may at some future time be true collector’s items from an era in our history that we will never forget.
The fashionable masks come in seven different high-quality fabrics, all inspired by objects found in Greece’s many archaeological museums or sites, including Cycladic statues and the Phaistos Disc.
