PLEASE NOTE that fabric face masks are not a proper substitute for medical masks in health care environments. This re-usable fabric face mask is ideal for personal use and use by non-medical personnel.

As a fashion designer, I looked at many different mask designs online, created some prototypes, and this one is the winner! The Olson style is a stylish, yet equally effective, mask design. The other popular design you may see is the pleated surgical mask style.

As always, wash your hands often with soap + water for at least 20 seconds, especially before applying or removing your mask, and practice social distancing. This mask is NOT a substitute for social distancing, all three practices must be maintained for optimal protection to yourself and others. Refer to these Guidelines for the use of Fabric Face Masks for further detail.
