Newest Masks (Nov 2021)

We have introduced two new variations on the Gondola and the Sparrowhawk masks for fall and winter of 2021: the 3D Domed and Boned Festive Mask and the Sparrowhawk Silk. They are available now!

They join the Gondola, Sparrowhawk, Anteater, Ziggurat, Accordion and “Put On a Good Face” masks.

Update: Now using flat nose bridge strips!

Now that rust-free, flat aluminum nose bridge strips are readily available, we’ll be switching away from the wire system we previously used.  Flat strips are much more stable, comfortable, and unlikely to warp or tarnish in the wash.

Important Face Mask Information

Please read through the entire FAQ! Like many common household items, there are right ways and wrong ways to use a face mask. Stay informed!

Note: Some washing machines and/or dryers can cause elastics to shrink.  Do NOT shorten elastics until you’ve laundered your mask a few times (we’ve made them a touch longer than the average preferred length for just this reason).  If your elastics get too tight for comfort after laundering, you can try stretching them back out (very carefully!) or just replace them by following our tutorial.
