Our Ear Savers take the pressure off ears while wearing a face mask, creating a more comfortable experience for the wearer. They help prevent rubbing from the elastic which can occur on the ears when wearing a mask for an extended period of time or for those with more delicate skin. They are also handy if you have small ears (like me!) and struggle to comfortably keep the elastic in place around the ear with the average face mask!

Our design is unisex and multi-fit. It slips over a pony tail OR sits snuggly at the nape of your neck. Hook the elastic from the face mask around the buttons to secure. If the elastic is still a little loose - it can be looped around again for a tighter fit. 

Handy tip: wrap one elastic strap once or twice around one button, put on your face mask, then pull the second strap around the other button.

Our Ear Savers are made from black upcycled wetsuits (neoprene). This material is soft, light and stretchy and very comfortable to wear.

These can be washed and sterilized in warm water and Milton. 

Select preferred button colour option at check out. Our Ear Savers are designed to wear alongside face masks with elastic that sits behind the ear. 

One size fits most. c. 13 cm x 4.5cm

Select preferred button colour option at check out. 

Our Neo 'Be The Change' makes for a useful pouch to keep your mask and Ear Saver safe in your bag or on the go. It has a key ring on the inside to connect it to another bag so you dont forget it! 

As with the nature of upcycling, slight variations will apply to each final product as each carries character from its adventurous past. 

10% of the Neo Collection goes to Seal Rescue Ireland who do phenomenal work rehabilitating and rescuing seal pups around the coast of Ireland as well as helping to protect our environment. 

Upcycled. Ethical. Irish. Awesome.

This information will be specified on individual items and applicable processing and shipping terms will be advised.

Upcycling process:

Due to the nature of upcycling reclaimed materials and also the fact that our products are made individually by hand – each product is therefore unique and carries character from it’s adventurous past. We feel this adds a little something special. This means that no two items will be exactly the same and many items will carry features from it’s past like marks and patterns, prints and numbers. This also means materials may vary in colours and shades and may have some fading or wear. This does not effect the quality. Real colour of products may vary slightly from the images used and due to differences in screens and monitors.

Limited collections:

Due to the nature of upcycling and availability of materials, many of our products and designs will be one-off pieces or limited editions.

Great for beards.

I have a big beard and was having a problem with face masks sliding up the beard to my eyes so I got one of these to try and it cured the problem. I don't use it over my ears but around my neck and it works great, I have just orderd three more for so I will never be stuck.

Lifesaver for elderly parents

Got one each for my parents, one of whom has a hearing aid. They found them immediately comfy and very easy to use. A lifesaver! Now my sister, who teaches and not looking forward to long masked hours teaching, wants them too! Well worth it.

Excellent Customer Service & Product

I was delighted with the customer service from my initial order to the fast delivery. In particular, it was lovely to receive a hand written thank you note, nice gesture. The ear savers are perfect, nicely crafted & so soft. Delighted. Happy to recommend.
