In an effort to keep our tailor shop busy and employed, we’ve been making face masks!
It started as a small project by our tailor, Veronica, for Matthew McClellan, who has been quarantined at home for the past few weeks, and it got us thinking we might be able to help others.
Veronica (along with Patrick) went to the cutting table to create prototypes and fine-tune the details. And voila! We’ve got ourselves some awesome face masks. Because no one should beat back a pandemic without a little style.
These face masks are 100% cotton and lined in shirt fabric for comfort. They are washable and reusable. There’s even a sleeve where you can slip in medical-grade paper filters if you want to.
We have face mask fabrics for men, women, and the little ones!”
We hope that you are staying safe and healthy out there. Soon enough, we think, we’ll be getting back to normal with our masks on.
Speaking of, as you will see below we have some new fabrics for you! We’ve found some colorful options along with everyone’s favorite, Sugar Skulls! We’re also relieved that we have found a reliable fabric house that can replenish our supplies while we are still in the mask business.
As for some bad news, we are out of Wonder Woman, Coco, Marvel Comics, English Telephone Booths and the early florals. We’ve researched high and low and apparently everyone else had the same idea we did.
As for the orange and white checkerboard fabric. It’s coming. We swear. 5 yards of it. We ordered from a fabric house called Spoonflower and they are not very good in the customer service department. But it is coming. If you absolutely have to have some orange … check out the orange and white bandana fabric that is in-house. But fair warning … it is in very limited supply.
The masks cost $20 and 60% of the proceeds are going to Second Harvest food bank. To date, thanks to you, we have given Second Harvest over $13,000!
Thank you for your support.
