During this time of uncertainty, it's important to remind ourselves about what we can give back vs what we are missing. We have been fighting to help provide large scale amounts of protective gear including our new PPE masks alongside of other gear for nonprofit cost. We are happy to provide them first to you and in bulk coming soon
Because we are operating at a nonprofit level for all but silk masks at this time, we have also started a GOFUNDME page to help alleviate on cost of PPE production.

Some are made with both vintage and new fabrics from recycled stock while others are mass quantity standard issue. All fabrics have been thoroughly washed. Both styles are hospital and city approved by our mayor's office. While they are not N95, our production instructions come directly from the city as well as hospital to ensure safety. While these will not 100% keep you from getting ill, they go a long way with prevention and just as important to stop spreading this godforsaken evil illness. THIS IS VERY CRUCIAL WITH COVID BECAUSE of MOST PEOPLE DON'T SHOW SYMPTOMS FOR DAYS WHILE EXTREMELY CONTAGIOUS.
I can personally attest that wearing a mask before the hype actually contributed in keeping my roommates from getting Corona from me and that mask was a fraction of the quality.
You can wash your cotton mask in a hot gentle cycle or by hand with antibacterial soap with like colors and air dry. Embroidery should stay intact on gentle. For the silk options, we recommend a hand wash with antibacterial soap for at least 1 minute then air dry. Silk pieces are base construction cotton according to city guidelines. If instructions are followed, your mask can be used for years after we get over this whole Pandemic thing.
