Key Features of a Mask's Effectiveness

The holiday season is here and it's time to step up our mask game. I love the challenge of blending fashion and safety together to create my face mask collection that people actually wanted to wear.
These festive sequin & embroidered masks are the IT accessory of the season - they not only look great and make great gifts, but I've put extra attention into the details that provide protection.

 

* Material The best material doesn’t sacrifice comfort for safety. I chose a multi-layered cotton fabric, with a second, inner cotton lining. This provides a dual layer of breathable protection and allows the mask to be worn for an extended period of time without irritating delicate faces. Bestselling Masks

* Adjustable strapsAs I discovered, it takes more than a quick loop of elastic to have truly useful and wearable straps. I decided to use a round, quarter-inch elastic for comfort and created straps with stoppers because I wanted personalized adjustment for my customers.  A snug fit is important.

* Nose Wire - It’s a basic element, but so very important at preventing unfiltered air flow through the top of the mask.

* Filter Pockets - All my masks include an easy-to-access pocket to add a filter.  The carbon filters available through my store can be easily tucked into the interior pockets for added protection and can be used for 16 hours before replacing.

How to use a mask

It’s easy, right? Just tuck the loops around your ears and make sure the mask covers your nose and mouth? Turns out there are a few more safety steps when it comes to proper wear and handling of a mask.

  1. Wash your hands before putting the mask on.
  2. Touch only the exterior of the mask (or only the ear loops).
  3. Make sure there are no air gaps between the mask and your face.
  4. Cover both your nose and mouth with the mask.
  5. Take your mask off using only the ear loops. Wash your hands after handling the mask.

A mask is only part of the overall safety measures required. Take these additional steps recommended by the World Health Organization. 

  • Maintain a physical distance of at least one meter (3 feet) from other people.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Stay at home as much as possible.
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue.

Of course, I know my masks are being made to my specifications. They are manufactured with sustainable fabrics right here in California at my Los Angeles atelier. 

We are excited to bring you more protection with our hats with face visors and mask ear extenders.

Stay safe. Stay stylish.
