WHERE ARE DONATIONS GOING?
We are currently donating a portion of all sales to Feeding America. For every $1 donated, 10 meals are created to feed hungry adults and kids. Please help us be part of positive change helping those in need.
ARE THESE MASKS AS GOOD AS AN N95?
Nothing is as effective as a properly fit N95, but let's save those for the medical workers, because if we've learned anything in this, it's that the folks working on the front lines of healthcare are severely under supplied for tackling this virus. These masks are made from two layers of fabric: the outer is one of our beautiful fabrics we use to make clothes and the lining is a compact cotton/poly fabric. They are not medical grade, but they do provide some level of protection. They have an opening on the side so that you can insert a filter.
WHAT FILTER SHOULD WE USE?
The short answer is we don't know and would be hesitant to recommend one. We have no scientific way of measuring the efficacy ourselves, but we are looking for research to support any filter we attempt to offer. The bottom line is that some sort of barrier on your nose and mouth is better than no barrier so please make sure you wear a face covering when outside of your home.
WHY ARE THESE $10? I CAN MAKE MY OWN FOR LESS.
We fully support people making them at home! That is a great and cost-effective option. Our masks are $10 for now, and each mask we sell creates 10 meals for hungry children and adults. Please help us feed those in need. Help us be part of the positive change. The production of these face covers has also enabled us to get some of our employees back to work, which has been really amazing.
CAN I SPECIFY THE COLOR OR PATTERN CHOICE FOR MY FACE COVER?
Because we are using remnants, they are assorted, in other words, we cannot guarantee the availability of any specific fabric. For that reason, we broke it into two color/pattern choices: Print and Neutral. Neutral might include options like grey solid or a neutral stripe like navy in grey. Colorful might be a fun pattern or print. Those are the two options.
WHAT IF MY MASK IS TOO BIG?
The masks have adjustable straps to ensure the best fit possible.
CAN I PICKUP MY ORDER?
Masks are available at our retail store located in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, and is open Thursday-Sunday, 11a-5p. We are unable to accommodate curbside pick-up at this time, but you are able to shop for your masks in-store.
