This is certainly a blog topic I never thought I’d write: where to find face masks online. But wearing face masks is our new reality. I don’t know where you live, but in most places in California, wearing a face mask in public is a requirement. While I’ve been spending the majority of my time at home, I have gone out a handful of times quickly (to pick up a prescription and to get takeout twice). And each time I wore a reusable cloth mask.
I like getting fashion PPE masks that are made in the US. I feel like it’s more important than ever to support small businesses in our country right now. My friend, who makes those super comfy cardigans I wear non-stop, is producing cloth face masks in Los Angeles. They’re washable and reusable and come in different patterns and colors (I obviously went with my favorite color, yellow).
Here is a list of more brands in the US that are selling face masks online:
I prefer to support local businesses and buy my face masks. But if you have any sewing capabilities, my friend Keiko posted a great cloth face mask tutorial IGTV video.
Whatever face mask you decide to wear, please stay safe!
