People missing their daily Underground commute can reminisce as they stay safe with two new sets of Tube inspired face coverings, exclusive to London Transport Museum. Featuring design icons from London’s transport network and history, the sets of reusable three-layered face masks are stylish and safe.
The two new exclusive sets of face coverings are available on London Transport Museum’s online shop from today (Tuesday 26 January) and cost £18 each, with every purchase helping to support the Museum.
The first set includes two masks featuring the modern-day diagrammatic Tube map design first created by Harry Beck in the 1930s. The third mask features a multi-coloured line-up of one of the world’s most recognisable logos: the London Underground Roundel.
The second set is made up of three modern moquette patterns, the colourful seating fabric used on public transport in the Capital since the 1920s. Styles include the classic Bakerloo Barman, the bright purple of the Elizabeth line and the vibrant blues of the Victoria line.
The face coverings feature a nose wire to help achieve a snug fit to the face, have adjustable ear loops for comfort and are made from three layers of fabric – two cotton inner layers and a polyester outer layer.
The Museum launched its first set of transport inspired face coverings in summer 2020 with the Routemaster bus, Victoria line and vintage District line moquette designs. This original set is also available for purchase on London Transport Museum’s online shop for £18.
