Our cloth face masks follow these guidelines given by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) for proper alternative PPE:
As stated by CDC, cloth face coverings should—
— fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
— be secured with ties or ear loops
— include multiple layers of fabric
— allow for breathing without restriction
— be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
This diagram image illustrates the construction of our cloth face masks. The front layer features a moisture-wicking, stay-dry polyester microfiber. Microfiber is a tight weave made of man-made fibers spun into a very fine yarn, which creates an ultra-soft finish that is also allergen-proof. This is the same fabric used in high thread count bedsheets and pillowcases.
The second layer is a cotton/polyester blend of fabric that is lightweight, comfortable, and moisture wicking. A filter (not included) can also be inserted through either side of the mask to allow for additional protection. The elastic band and trim come in black or white colors.
