While face masks are in no way a replacement for Social Distancing and Hand Washing we have decided to offer a very limited amount of cotton masks. These are NON medical grade masks, but research shows with proper use, cotton masks may offer some benefit.
These masks are proudly sewn and hand printed in North Vancouver, Canada, featuring a Poppy design and the kind words of Dr. Bonnie Henry. They are sewn with a 100% linen lining and a cotton exterior with elastic ear loops. Each mask has an interior pocket that can accommodate an optional filter.
These reusable masks are not intended to be a replacement for medical grade PPE and no claims are being made that they are. It is advisable to wash this mask before using as well as after wearing.
Due to hygiene concerns these are FINAL SALE
The WHO and CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Our best protection to keep safe and healthy is to not touch our faces, frequent hand washing and social distancing. The public practice of wearing a cloth face mask can help slow the spread of the virus and keeps the limited supply of medical grade masks available for our health care workers and first responders.
When wearing cloth masks be sure to:
- Wash hands before placing mask on your face
- To remove, pull on the band behind one ear and 'peel' off across your face. If you can't wash right away, place mask in an area that can be sanitized later
- Wash mask in soap and warm water and hang to dry
- Wash your hands after touching or removing your worn mask
