Our 3D-style face covering was born after making numerous masks for my family.
The shape of this 3D Cotton Face Covering sits away from your mouth and nose, so you are able to talk, laugh and yawn without it sliding off. Because some of us have sensory issues, designing for comfort and wearability was paramount. The resulting design is comfortable, breathable, adjustable and fits super well on a variety of shapes and sizes.
Your face covering will be created to your specifications, and all work is mindfully completed in our own studio. Because our products are made to order, construction will take from one to two weeks. We promise it will be worth the wait. Thanks for your understanding.
Shipping is through Canada Post. You may also safe pick up at our studio location, or have your order delivered to select locations in Simcoe County. For delivery catchment area, see this link. If you wish to order one or two sample face coverings shipped via Canada Post Lettermail™ without tracking, we have included the option to do so. See our Sample 3D Cotton Face Covering product page. If Canada Post is experiencing delays, they will update their website here.
Please also note that we understand it is not always possible to wear a reusable face covering, and there are many instances where an N95 or KN95 is required. Whatever face covering you wear needs to fit well, or it will not be effective.
Construction & Options
Our standard 100% Cotton Face Coverings are made from two layers of pre-washed premium cotton, with a casing to allow you to both adjust, and change out the tie. You may order your masks with or without nose wires, although nose wires are recommended if you wear glasses. See more on eyeglasses and face coverings here.

We have five size options available:
- Adult small
- Adult medium
- Adult large
- Extra large
This style only covers where it needs to (not ear to ear). Because of the extra space around your mouth and nose, our sizing is generous. The various ties we offer allow you even more flexibility in fit.
You may choose your mask either with or without a nose wire. If you chose a face covering without a nose wire, you may order it either with or without scoops. Essentially scoops are small cut-outs at the top edge of the face coverings that allow a better fit around your eyes. See the images in the Finding Your Size link below.
Face Covering Ties
For further customization, we have three tie options to choose from: Bungee-style Elastic (think pony tail elastic), Nylon Paracord (non-stretchy soft nylon cord like a hoodie drawstring) or soft and stretchy, 3-ply Ear Loops. Keep in mind that if you have ordered a tie option that doesn’t work for you, we have ties available to purchase individually here.
Children’s face coverings with around the head Bungee-elastic come with safety release toggles. You may prefer to order child sizes with either ear loops or nylon cord. Many children find the elastic ties or nylon cord around the head more comfortable than ear loops for long periods of time.

3-Layer Cotton & Silk Option
Please note that we have moved our three layer silk face coverings here. Silk has electrostatic properties, is naturally water repellent, and may be antimicrobial and antiviral as well. To increase the efficiency of our face coverings, we have introduced a three layer mask with an inner silk filter layer.
See more about the properties of silk here:Properties of Silk
Please do ask if you have previously ordered a fabric you don’t see in our gallery. We would be happy to check our stock for you. Because our fabric collection is extensive, fabrics are broken into two galleries: kid’s only fabrics (including a limited number of small), as well as all other sizes (including kids). To see this large grouping of fabric further broken down, go to our fabric gallery page.
Choose your fabric in Drop-down Options
Because we have been experiencing a high turnover of fabrics, we are now asking if you would please pick an alternate fabric when you order your face coverings. When choosing your fabric options select your first and second choice fabric for each face covering in your order. This way, you will get the fabric you choose.

Use & Care
We recommend washing your 3D Cotton Face Covering by hand, since this will extend the life of your mask and ensure that it will always be ready to wear the next day. Wash at least once before you trim your elastic bungee cord, as the elastic may shrink slightly. We have recently discovered a salad spinner hack which is super convenient for hand washing face masks.
