Why Fabric Masks?
Our fabric masks are the result of extensive research, which helped me to come up with three styles/options. All are reusable and all are 100% cotton, hand made in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.
We all know the best masks to wear for protection are the N95 disposable type masks. Let's keep the N95 masks in the hands of our healthcare workers.
Olson Style Mask
This is the Olson Style fabric mask using this template from Unity Health and made with 100% cotton. It is a two layer mask with an inside pocket to insert a filter. Mask includes 3 precut 1500 MPR filters that you can insert into the filter pocket. I have recently found out that there are lots of options for filters, have even read that blue shop towel can be cut up and used, coffee filters or vaccum filter bags. There is also a bendable nose piece to better fit the mask to your nose and reduce the gap below your eyes. This mask is fully machine washable and reusable, however it’s recommended that you dispose the filter after each use. Discounts available for large orders.

Modified Olson Mask
This is a modified version of the Olson Style Fabric Mask and our best seller. After feedback from clients and after working with the FTC Handmade Masks Project. I have modified this version to be a front and back layer of 100% cotton with a third 100% cotton layer sandwiched between. There is also a bendable nose piece to better fit the mask to your nose and reduce the gap below your eyes. This mask has a really great fit. Fully machine washable and reusable. Discounts available for large orders.

Please note: I'm not here to debate whether or not a fabric mask is the right way to go to protect yourself or if you should or shouldn't wear one. I'm just here to try and help out healthcare facilities that may need them in emergencies, and just regular people and businesses who would like one but don't have time or resources to make them on their own.
