These days, I have been trying to use my sewing skills as a way to help. I’ve been making reusable face masks for my community: healthcare workers, delivery workers, store clerks, etc. I have decided that it’s time I make masks for purchase to the general public as restrictions are being lifted across Canada.
Our masks are 'boat' style which provides the user with ample face coverage, and easy to adjust elastics/nose piece. They are made from 2 layers of 100% cotton and are very comfortable to wear.
Wearing a non-medical mask has not been proven to protect the person wearing it from contracting a virus, yet it may reduce the chances of others who may come into contact with the wearer.
Please note these are non-medical masks and they do have limitations. We recommend: - Washing your hands before putting on the mask and after removing your mask. - No sharing of masks. - masks should not be placed on children under the age of two.
Our masks are machine washable in cold water. Although they are made in a location that is pet-free and smoke-free we advise that you wash your mask before first use. These masks are not a substitute for N95 or surgical-grade masks and they are not Health Canada approved.
