Deluxe Masks (The Calavera) are in stock and ready to ship!
But first, a little about our Donated Masks!
Thanks to generous support from the community, we have donated over 2500 facemasks to local VA's, first responders, homeless shelters and many other folks doing hard work with limited resources. Thanks for helping make this a reality!
What we're making and why we're making it.
Calavera Facemasks are made from a material that was originally designed as part of a HEPA filtration system and stitched together with a whole lot of love and care by someone closely resembling your grandmother.
We've tested our own masks through over a dozen wash cycles. Keep them clean and swap in a fresh one as good judgment dictates. Be safe.
The main panel is cut from a high-filtration vacuum bag. And though this is some seriously high-grade material here, the fit and resultant seal will be different for every single person.
Our masks feature an around-the-ear fit using a 1/4" braided elastic, which is cut/sewn for a generous fit, You may wish to adjust for fit by tying or adding a small rubber band to excess.
Very important note on the materials:
Though the filter bag material may look like it has perforations, please rest assured that these are only on the outer layers of material. There is some really great filter material in between those two layers that does all the work. So no, we're not selling you masks with holes in them.
How they fit
All masks are designed as one-size-fits-all. They are a little looser on some, though we have found more than a few hacks to shorten the elastic for a better fit (knotting, crimping or otherwise pegging the elastic seems to work best).
The Calavera Facemask incorporates features that will enable a better fit, including an aluminum nose strip and a more form fitting design for under the chin.
