Rounding Up Reusable Face Masks {With Many That Give Back}

 A SPRING TABLESCAPE IN TIME FOR EASTER / MSTARR DESIGN

christy dawn


Update July 3: I've been experimenting with various fits, materials, and styles for both Max and I. I figure we’ll be wearing masks for awhile to come and Max will need a bunch when she heads back to school next month. For her, adjustable is essential if she’s running around or wearing for extended periods of time. I am liking the molded style vs. pleated style though I have both. Many of my favorites don’t have the wire nose piece but iIdo find it helpful when wearing sunglasses. Bill has found his favorite {Hedley & Bennett} that fits his face perfectly! Now that masks are proven to protect others {and possibly even yourself} and are mandated throughout much of the country, I wanted to update this post with some of our favorites and other recommendations. Please, wear a mask.


The latest it accessory? Reusable face masks. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are aware that the CDC is recommending that everyone over the age of 2 wear a cloth mask or covering while out of the house, and many Governors are requiring them in their states. A reminder that these are to protect OTHERS in case you are infected and don’t know it. It’s also important to note that these are to be worn IN ADDITION to social distancing. Just because you are wearing a mask doesn’t mean you can start to socialize like you did before the coronavirus pandemic began.


I’ve rounded up a number of chic + sustainable masks for the whole family. Many brands are donating masks or donating proceeds from mask sales to those in need, healthcare workers, and essential workers. You are also helping to support many small businesses. A couple of notes:


/ Lead times vary by manufacturer so be sure to check the timelines when ordering!

/ Some masks are available for pre-order only or are out of stock but you can receive an in-stock notification by email.

04 / HATCH recently started selling mama and kid masks made with 100% cotton fabric remnants. Each set is triple-layered and comes with adjustable straps.

They’re lightweight and breathable and for each set sold, HATCH is donating a pack of surgical masks to healthcare workers.

12 / The Hedley & Bennett original Wake Up & Fight masks were the first iI purchased for our family. They are designed in collaboration with an LA doctor and are made of 100% cotton or 60/40 cotton-poly fabric, with a space for a filter. UPDATE: they’ve revamped the fit of the mask and are now Bill’s go-to. Every mask purchased supports H&B's efforts to donate more masks to doctors, nurses, first responders, food service works and other essential workers.


13 / Loving these neutral patterned masks by Amadi which you can find at Anthropologie. They come in a set of 2, feature adjustable tie straps, and are made in the US.

The masks are available in a variety of fabrics and feature ribbon ties for a comfortable fit. One mask will be donated to a cause in need.


18 / Iconic brand Clare V started making masks to donate to frontline and essential workers, and while they’re still donating, They’ve now made the masks available to buy. They come in a set of 4 and are made from remnant and deadstock fabric {meaning they’re using fabric that has already been produced}. Note: color, prints and fabric will vary.

26 / If you’re gonna wear a mask, make it a FABULOUS one. This sequined star mask from nashville designer any old iron is too much fun, and it’s no surprise that their clients include Beyoncé, Gaga, Cher and Elton John!
