Our masks are made with a tight knit cotton blend fabric. They are constructed with extra reinforced stitching on all stress areas. Our masks are reusable and washable. There is an opening on the top that allows for an optional filter to be inserted for even better protection. Filters are not included with each face mask, but can be purchased here separately. The high quality of these masks will make them something you can wear proudly, especially knowing they are made in the U.S., one at a time, by a small family owned business.
How these masks came to be is an interesting story. My wife’s brother in law asked her to design a face mask that was comfortable so he could wear it around the firehouse. It had become mandatory for firefighters to wear a mask 24/7 while at work. The masks they were given to wear were marking up their face and were very uncomfortable to wear the entire day. With a lot of feedback from her brother in law and his colleagues, my wife fine tuned the design to something that was not only comfortable and stylish, but more importantly, very well made.
She also makes face masks with other subject matter like marvel comics and star wars. Feel free to check out her website, handmadePPE.com
