Our Face Masks - 25% of all purchases will be donated to the organizations listed below.
We've distributed around 500 face masks since the beginning of Covid19, most of them for free! Thanks to everyone who has been donating either through us, or paying it forward to your favourite organizations in need.
Now that there are plenty of places to buy face masks, and we don't need to sew maniacally to meet the huge demand that was, and we can concentrate on creating fewer but finer masks, and help out some organizations in need as well. We would like to introduce you to the LEAF RAPIDS DELUXE FITTED MASK. Over the past few months we've been fine tuning our design with a flight attendant friend and think we've come up with a winner for those who have to wear them for awhile, and need them to be comfortable.
They have aluminum nose wires with a foam backing for extra comfort and a better seal that won't fog your glasses. They also have a sewn in pellon interfacing for added filtration, and a pocket if you want to add an extra filter. Our friendlier tie design is getting rave reviews (no tying, and no pulling on ears).
If you have a special cotton fabric print you'd like to use, bring it on by, or ship it to me, also hit me up for fancy ideas, see custom orders on the right:)
SHIPPING / PICK UP:
- There wasn't a pick up option when setting up this online store, so make sure you choose the mask for PICK-UP or SHIPPING REQUIRED.
Here's some info on the organizations we are supporting:
