Accordion Mask

$12.00$13.00

This is the classic choice if you’re after a traditional-style face mask.  Depending on your face shape, you may find the Accordion mask more comfortable than “Put On a Good Face” masks – or exactly the opposite — most people strongly prefer one or the other.  If you’re not sure which style is better for you, here is some guidance.

You can choose to have a flexible concealed wire nose-piece, so you can mould the top edge into a custom shape for a snugger fit (this can help reduce fogging up glasses).  Find out if you need a nose-piece or not.

Choose between elastic ear loops or conventional ties (not pictured yet).

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Please remember that no masks can offer full protection against any kind of infection or danger.  These are offered for fashion and personal comfort reasons only, same as any masks that are not specifically produced to medical specifications.  Always wash your hands properly and keep your distance from other people, wash your hands before putting on your masks and after taking them off, and launder masks after each wearing or if they get wet or soiled, then dry completely before reusing.

Price breaks are available for quantities or 2, 5, 10, and 20.

Description

Details

These washable, reusable face masks are hand-made by Canadian artisans in British Columbia.  We use two layers of tightly woven or tight-knit but relatively breathable materials which are safe to wear against facial skin — very important for long-term wearability.

Generous pleats make room for your nose and open up when you talk, which can prevent the mask from riding up or down for some wearers (especially if you have a longer face).  For men, pleats may provide more coverage for beards and/or keep stubble from catching on and pulling the mask down too far.

Consider getting more than one mask per person so you can wash and dry used masks after every wearing, especially if anyone in your family has cold-like symptoms, or if you’re in contact with other people for your job.

Adjustable ties that go behind the head allow you to customize the tightness for maximum comfort, and are a good choice for people with sensitive ears.

Ties vs. Elastics?

You can order your mask with either (a) elastic ear loops or (b) ties at the top & bottom of the mask.  However, please be aware that you won’t be able to replace elastics as easily as you can for “Put on a Good Face” masks (it can be done, but it’s more work).

Alternatives

If you find your glasses fog up, find your mask fabric sticks to your skin in hot weather, or feel like you have trouble breathing freely in a mask, you might want to check out our new Ziggurat mask.

Fabric Choices

All fabrics are have been put through a washer and dryer before cutting out the masks, so you can safely machine-wash and tumble-dry them.  Remember that nose-pieces may rust or degrade rapidly with bleach.  Read more to decide whether you want a nose-piece or not.  If you intend to use bleach, you should stick with white cotton only and opt for the nose-piece at your own risk.

Disclaimers

Remember that no masks can offer full protection against any kind of infection or danger.  These are offered for fashion and personal comfort reasons only, same as any other masks that are not specifically produced to medical specifications.  Please read the FAQ and the Mask Wear and Care instructions before using any masks!

For your safety and ours, returns or exchanges are absolutely not possible with all face masks!

We’re doing our best to keep prices as low as humanly possible to help ensure everyone who wants masks can have them right now.  So we’re offering them for the cost of materials, plus minimum wage for our sewing time.  We’ll try to maintain this for as long as the need exists and our materials hold out.

Of course, being smart and educated people, you already know that none of this should ever be taken as medical advice or meant to substitute for official and standardized medical equipment, and is meant for personal choice and fashion purposes.  Do the hand-washing, social distancing thing!  And if you think you or yours have an illness, call your doctor.  Though of course there’s no reason you shouldn’t do any of these things while wearing puppy dog print or hot pink fabrics on your face.
