Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How should I wash the face masks?

We recommend washing it in a delicates bag , on low spin and hot temperature. Here is a link (click here) to such a delicates bag to purchase on Amazon. 

We recommend line drying to prevent knots in the ties.

Do you have masks in stock now?

YES!

We manufacture them daily in Brooklyn, New York. We employ a small team of production seamstresses who work from home. 

We produce every day hundreds of masks and we update our inventory in real time. 

Given the problem with supply chains we have made our masks as simple as possible so we can produce as many as we need. 


We have capacity to produce as many as thousand of masks per day if needed. 

Are your masks efficient to filter against viruses?

Studies (click here for link) have shown that 95% of particulates are blocked in pure cotton masks if there is a good seal. 

We have in addition added a layer of non-woven fabric in the middle to further improve the efficiency of our masks.

We have made our face masks wider and bigger than the usual disposable masks to help with having a bigger seal. 

However, we have no data, nor any proof or information to show that our masks are efficient in preventing viral transmission. Please be careful and follow the CDC 

How many face masks do I need?

Our face masks are washable and reusable. We think of face masks like underwear.

We recommend having 1 to 2 weeks of face masks supplies.

Yes you can live with one pair of underwear but most people have a few weeks supplies so that they don't have to do laundry daily.

If you don’t have access to a machine, is hand-washing effective?

If you don’t have access to laundry facilities, Nanos said that “you can hand wash your clothes at home as long as you can get the temperature above 80 degrees Fahrenheit.” She added that it remains “easier and faster if you can wash your clothes in a regular washing machine, which is still totally safe and will kill the virus even if you were washing your clothes with sick people‘s clothes.”

Why are you using non-woven fabric?

Unfortunately both the supply chains that provide filters or carbon activated fabrics are not working. 

We are using non-woven fabric in the middle layers as that is the best we could find.

We have seen literature that shows that this is more effective then just using woven fabric like cotton. 

How long should I wash the mask to kill viruses?

Family and emergency Dr. Janette Nesheiwat suggested that polyester, spandex-like material may retain germs longer than breathable cotton-based fabrics.

When it comes time to wash clothes, Winner said there are specific guidelines you’ll want to follow in order to help kill the virus. This includes using the hot water setting on your washing machine and giving your clothes some extra time and heat in the dyer.

“I would recommend that you wash clothes in detergents that contain a bleach compound,” Rohde told HuffPost. “Viruses do not do well at all in this type of harsh environment.”

How do your masks compare to disposable masks with elastics?

Our masks are washable and therefore reusable.

Also we use straps so you can knot your mask behind your head. We find this to be more comfortable than elastics around your ears, especially if worn for hours.

Pour masks are also bigger than disposable masks and form a better seal. 

Our mask doesn't seem to have a 3+ layers ?

As you can see in the picture the middle layers are there. The middle layers are thin so you can breath through them.  It is non-woven polypropylene. It is there. If you don't trust us please cut a mask to check. 

Can I microwave the mask?

If you are in a hurry and don't have time to wash the mask you can microwave it. The microwave duration and strength depends on your particular microwave oven. Be careful not to set things on fire !! Also if you microwave it for too long you may melt the non-woven fabric in the middle. 

More information on microwaving a mask can be found here (click here)

How many masks do you have?

At this time we employ a small team of seamstresses working from home. We produce hundreds of masks per day.  

Each time a mask is sold it comes out of our inventory in real time. 

Therefore our inventory is as accurate as can be.  

Are your masks N95 rated?

 No, they are not. 

To make N95 masks we need activated carbon fabric , or filters. Unfortunately they are  impossible to find. 

If you know where you can find any we can make N95 "like" masks.

However for a mask to be fully N95 certified it has to pass advanced tests in a lab which is not possible at this time. 

Why don't you add more layers to the mask?

One needs to be able to breath through the mask for hours at a time. Therefore a trade off between protecting enough vs not tiring the wearer more then necessarily lead us to build this 3 or 5-layered product.

How should I tie the mask?

We recommend tying the top strap first, while making sure it's above your ears. Then the bottom strap around the neck. 

Wear and tear

With repeated use, the ends of the ties may fray. To prevent this, simply knot the ends.

The CDC recommends that everybody wear face masks when in public especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators.  Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Our masks exceed the CDC recommendations by addying a thin 3rd layer of non-woven polypropylene filter in the middle.

Washing hands and wearing masks saves lives. Please continue wearing face masks and washing hands as often as possible.

More information on the CDC website here.

Our Face Masks

Tightly-Woven new cotton

We only use brand-new tightly-flat-woven high quality cotton. Cotton provides both a layer of filtration and good skin contact. We use cotton on both sides.

Non-woven fabric

We use new non-woven fabric as an extra filtration layer. The non-woven fabric is locked in between two cotton layers to prevent its irritating skin contact.

Washable

All our masks are machine washable.  They contain no latex, no metal, no added filters, no pockets. 

Microwavable

Our masks can be microwaved. 

Greetings - 
Gorgeous masks and a great service. I would love to purchase some when they are back in stock. I signed up for your mailing list to be notified when they are back in stock.
Thank you so much! Your neighbor in Bk,-Rebecca

Orders for standard/disposable masks are on long back-orders, due to both demand and supply chain issues.  Other hospitals across the country are reporting the same supply concerns.

While fabric masks are not to be used in the care of patients, according to the CDC, fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted. Fabric masks can also be helpful in other areas of patient care as supplies of PPE are depleted.  
 
“Prior to modern disposable masks, washable fabric masks were standard use for hospitals,” said Dawn Rogers, MSN, RN, FNP-C, Patient Safety & Infection Prevention Office.  “We will be able to sterilize these masks and use them repeatedly as needed.  While it’s less than ideal, we want to do our best to protect our staff and patients during this pandemic.”

Health Care Providers (HCP) use of homemade masks:
In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients  as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.

CDC https://www.cdc.gov

"In high resource settings, disposable medical masks and respirators have long since replaced the use of cloth masks in hospitals. Yet cloth masks remain widely used globally, including in Asian countries, which have historically been affected by emerging infectious diseases, as well as in West Africa, in the context of shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE)"

Thinking about how to make your own mask?

While our masks are still made by hand in NYC, we've done our research, source the best materials and have hired the best professionals and seamstresses. Our masks do not claim to be medical grade, but we have made them as close as possible.

Here is scientific research in peer review journals talking about these facts (click here for link).

How can I donate masks to institutions?

If you want to make a donation it is very easy :

1. Ad face masks or face shields to your cart

2. Fill in your information as billing information (name, address, credit card).

3. Set shipping address to whom ever should receive them. 

4. For donation of 50 masks or more use discount code "donate" to save 10% on the entire order.

Who needs masks? Did you think of supermarkets? Food delivery people? Food prep people?
