My-Grain Mask - Sandhills At Sunset

$32.95

Introducing our Lupin-filled My-Grain Mask. Just like our heat packs this eye mask can be heated up and used hot or placed in the freezer to use cold. 

This print is designed by Aboriginal artist, Holly Sanders. Holly Sanders is a proud Bundjalung artist and educator from the North Coast of New South Wales. She currently lives and works on Yuin Country, on the South Coast of New South Wales. Through her art, she aims to share her stories, culture and Country in a contemporary way.       

This piece represents the importance of sand environments on Bundjalung Country. Sand environments around the ocean and estuaries provided an abundance of wild food where there were always plenty of resources to share among the community. Turtles, shellfish, swan and duck eggs and plants such as water lily bulbs, sea celery and pig face were among some of the many food resources. Middens were also common and unfortunately sand mining and development destroyed many valuable midden sites. The passing on of knowledge about Country to the younger generation is an important tradition and sand painting was also a common art form in coastal areas, where coloured sands were used to create a temporary picture and story which was then washed away by the next high tide - Holly Sanders.

 

What are Lupins? Lupins are a type of legume. The benefits are as follows;

  • No odour
  • Won't sweat when heated
  • Retains heat longer than traditional wheat heat packs

Wear it before you go to sleep. Whatever it may be, we have you covered! 

Measuring approx 50-55cm in circumference when worn comfortably. Does have elastic with extra stretch however it may not fit comfortably when stretched more than this

Plot twist - you can also use it as a cold pack! To use as a cold pack, place it into a freezer bag and store in the freezer. 

Heat Instructions - DO NOT OVERHEAT
Microwaves are different - just like us. These are guidelines only.
Start with placing the heat pack in the microwave on high for 60 seconds. If not hot enough, place back in for 15-second intervals until it reaches your desired temperature. 

Keep instructions and read carefully.
Take care when in use and heating.
All heat packs are handmade so not every heat pack is the same - Print Directions may vary as we aim to minimise wastage.
