Available in different sizes for adults and children!
The materials and design of our masks were meticulously thought out to create a superior product. We encourage you to read our “about us” section on our main page for detailed information about our face mask’s construction.
Three layers with a pocket for filter
Bendable nose wire for a comfortable and custom fit (also helps to prevent fogging of glasses)
Elastic ear loops (adjustable and replaceable for a perfect fit) — they are not sewn in permanently to the mask like most others
Pleated design means it will fit every face shape with comfort
Unisex design – Washable
Includes a removable filter layer for better contaminate filtration.
Suggested ages for sizes:
Small – fits most kids aged 4-10 years
Medium – fits most women and teens
Large – fits most men
This isn’t a hard rule though since the masks are really based on average head sizes, not specifically age or gender. The approximate width (across your face) of each size is as follows:
Small: 7 inches
Medium: 8 inches
Large: 9 inches
All masks come with elastic ear loops which are adjustable and replaceable. If the ear loops don’t work for you, simply remove the ear loops and find a long shoelace or piece of twine. Lay the mask on a table and loop the shoelace through each side of the mask, creating a giant U. Slip the mask on your head with the U part behind your neck, reach up and tie a bow towards the crown of your head.

After seeing a need for a quality face mask and being dissatisfied with every online pattern we tried to make, we set off to design something that actually works, and after over a dozen attempts at different prototypes, we finally settled on a custom design that checked off all the boxes for us:
The pleated design mimics professional masks for a reason — there’s no center seam which possibly allows contaminates to easily pass through stitching holes. In addition, we found that a pleated design better fits a variety of face shapes and allows one to talk or even yawn without the mask moving down one’s nose (which always happened with other non-pleated designs we made unless they were oversized).
We researched the latest scientific papers released in 2020 and found which handmade mask materials filter best, hence our replaceable flannel inner layer/filter. (See our FAQ section for details on the studies conducted)
We opted for a real functional pocket so not only can we insert the flannel filter layer, but one can also add more layers or replace the flannel with whatever material he or she feels is best.
Elastic ear loops made sense, but we took it a step further and didn’t sew them permanently into the mask like most people do but instead took the extra time to make them adjustable and replaceable — if ear loops don’t work for you, simply remove them and find a long shoelace to tie the mask behind your head.
We found problems when wearing a mask with glasses so we incorporated a handmade aluminum nose wire which will cinch down the mask around your nose to help prevent fogging while also giving you a better seal. We chose aluminum because it doesn’t rust, is flexible, and will stand up to repeated washing and bending.
We also thought about makeup, lip balm, and lipstick which is why we chose to make the inside of all our masks black so it better hides any potential stains.
Originally we tried a one size fits all approach, but we found it really doesn’t work which is why we took the time to design three different sizes (small, medium, large). Small fits most children age 4-10, Medium fits most teens and women, and Large fits most men. (Although it’s really about your head size more specifically than your gender or age)
And lastly, we figured why not get a little stylish with the newest fashion trend of 2020, so we are constantly sourcing different designs and colours to add to your wardrobe!
So in short, we did this not to make a quick buck (or quid depending on which side of the pond you’re from), but instead we did it to make sure there’s a really well thought out quality option on the market for people to choose from. A cheap mask would have been quick and easy, but it wouldn’t have been the right thing to do for us, or for you. We really put a lot of thought and effort into the design and spend extra time making each one… We hope it shows when you wear it.
From our family to yours, we wish you the best! Be smart, be safe, and don’t be afraid to be a trendsetter — wear it wherever you go. Hopefully your lungs will thank you!
Lots of love,
The Face Rags family
