Description

Our Style Journey

After creating many different face coverings for my family, I feel confident we have agreed on a style that suits everyone. This 3D Cotton Face Covering is the clear winner. The final product is comfortable, breathable and fits very well on a variety of shapes and sizes. We have a few children in our family who have sensory issues, which meant comfort and wearability was paramount. We all appreciate the way this mask sits away from our faces slightly.

Please keep in mind that these masks are being custom created to your specifications. This means construction will take from one to two weeks. Production is currently about ten days. Our shipping is through Canada Post, who claims service levels are improving (see link), but are still notably slow to more remote areas, as well as out of Ontario. We promise it will be worth the wait! Thanks for your understanding.

 

Materials

Our 3D Cotton Face Coverings are made from two layers of pre-washed 100% cotton, with casing to allow you to both adjust, and change out the tie (see use & care). Our masks without nose wires are designed with a slight scoop around nose for better fit without the wires. The newest recommendation for COVID-19 specific masks is that they are made with a minimum of two layers, to an optimum of three, with one being an electrostatic filter layer (see info on materials here). We have optional silk filters for those who would like extra protection, and optional nose wires for those who wear glasses and have a higher bridge. Please note that although I do not see a huge difference in the ease of breathing between our face coverings with or without silk, the silk lined masks do get slightly damp. This may be undesirable for longer term use or in humid climates.

Our lining fabric, as well as most of our solids, is Robert Kaufman signature Kona® Cotton Solids brand. While not organic, Kona is the only quilting solid to come with the assurance of Oeko-tex certification, which certifies that no harmful chemicals were used in the production, processing or finishing of these goods.

Our Promise to You

We strive to do our best to protect the environment. Because it matters to us, this design allows us to create with extremely little fabric waste. After making almost 300 face coverings, we have a little over one grocery bag worth of fabric waste. We use as many natural & recyclable materials as possible, including our packaging. Even by wearing reusable masks, you are helping the environment immensely. Thank you.

We are supporting local small businesses. Although the cost may be higher, all of our fabrics and materials, including notions and packaging are purchased through Canadian companies. Most are located in Ontario so that shipping is closer to home, but some are in Quebec, Alberta as well as British Columbia. Many items are not manufactured in Canada, but whatever is available we are using. See a list of our suppliers.

Kid’s Face Coverings

These come standard with elastic around the head, with safety release toggles. You do however, have the option to order children’s masks with either ear loops or nylon cord as well. Please note that our children found the elastic around the ear less comfortable than the elastic ties or nylon cord around the head. In general, if face coverings need to be worn for more than a couple of hours at a time, around the head ties or elastics are more enjoyable to wear.

Sizing

Please see this link for info on sizing and fit. Adult face coverings come in small, medium, large and extra large. If you have previously ordered from us, the extra large is very close to the old large size (just a teeny bit bigger). The large is a new size between XL and Medium. Our masks only cover where they need to (not ear to ear). The sizing is generous, and the ties allow you even more flexibility in fit.
Child size is 19.25cm long (side to side) x 13.7cm wide (top to bottom)
Small size is 20cm long x 15.5cm wide
Medium size is 21.5cm long x 16.5cm wide
Large size 22cm long x 17.2cm
Extra Large size is 23cm long x 18cm wide

Pricing & Discounts

Please note that masks are priced including taxes.
Shipping is free across Canada if your order is over $200 (for masks only).

Because we have been experiencing a high turnover of fabrics, we are now asking you to pick an alternate when you order. When choosing your fabric, please select an alternate fabric option from the drop down. If you choose the same alternate fabric as your first choice and we are out of stock, we will choose a fabric for you. Thank you for your understanding.

There is currently a global shortage of fabrics and other supplies as a result of COVID 19. Most especially there seems to be a shortage of children’s fabrics. We have decided to limit some of our fabrics to child sized face coverings only for the time being. We’ve broken the fabric into two galleries. Kid’s only fabrics, and everything else. To see the large grouping of fabric further broken down, go to this page.

    Good quality and workmanship. The masks fit great. Not a fan of the bungee cord but like the ear loops.

    Just received my 2 masks and am in awe as to how well made these masks are. The 3D design is comfortable, cool and does not cause my glasses to fog up! Being able to customize the mask from fabric to cord style, to nose wire to filter, makes these masks easy to wear and the best I’ve found so far. Will be recommending these to everyone who asks.

    My husband ordered the 3D masks for me in the size small. These are by far the most comfortable masks that I have worn since the start of Covid. I wear a mask at work for roughly 9 hours a day. I also work in supply chain so I am constantly moving around. I no longer get headaches from the ear loops (my masks have the cord), I can also breathe. There are times when my job gets extremely physical and sucking in my mask through my nose is unpleasant. The rigid design is wonderful. I’ve just ordered 3 more masks. They all have the additional nose wire and silk lining. I’ve recommended these to everyone who has asked about them.

    Great masks. Comfortable. Two Layers. Space for additional filters to be inserted. Close fitting for safety. And comfortable around the ears. Definitely recommended.

    I ordered 5 masks recently (3 children’s size and 2 adults). Our boys were happy with the patterns they chose, and I’ve been relieved to see how happy they’ve been to wear them (for short periods of time – just getting them used to wearing them). The cut of the masks is great. My mask tie is a bit short and therefore tight, so I plan to replace it (some day!). Overall we are very pleased with these masks.

      Oh Sarah, I am sorry to hear this. We are putting a larger cord in the mail today. Thanks for letting us know.

    So far these are the best fitted face masks for my kids. I purchased 2 with bungee elastic cords and 2 with nylon cords. I find that bungee elastic cords are easier to put on. Fabulous quality!

    We love these masks! I really appreciated being able to customize all the features, from the size to the ties to the nose wire, as I was able to get everything that both my partner (lab worker) and I needed out of our masks. The prints are awesome, and the masks are also really well constructed – they have a good seal, but they don’t cling to your mouth/nostrils, which is way more comfortable for the summer. I’ve been recommending this shop to all my friends, and will be back for more!

    These masks are great. The 3D shape is nice so the mask isn’t plastered to your face. Very comfortable to wear. Masks were ready in a week and arrived nicely packaged a few days later. Will be ordering again.

    Fabric is beautiful and custom options are practical. I’m really glad to have found a mask option that does not cause my glasses to fog.
    Helpful, easy to navigate website. My masks were delivered within 10 days of placing my order.

    The nose clip really helps to get a snug fit. Got them with the ear loop which is comfortable but wish the ear loops had sliders to make them easier to adjust.
    Very quick and courteous service. Masks were delivered very quickly too.

    I am so impressed with the whole process and experience that I found with Verity Blue. The site is so easy to navigate, informative and helpful! I love how many options there are to customize your perfect match; The patterns are insanely beautiful (I had such a hard time not adding every single one to my cart!), the option of ear loops/wraparound elastics/paracord is so accessible for a variety of purposes like long term vs short term wear, and the sizing chart is simple to follow and helpful to choose! I had no concerns that my masks would fit and when they arrived (in under two weeks to boot) I was so impressed by the quality of the build. The panel style of crafting makes so that the bottom doesn’t dig into the soft skin of my throat like other masks I’ve used, the main panel is structured and creates a small gap between your mouth and the fabric for comfortable and easy talking, laughing, yawning and more, and the nose panel with wiring ensures it doesn’t ride up to your eyeballs and stays in place! Ideal for glasses wearers as it eliminates the dreaded ‘breath fog’. The masks themselves are individually packaged, which I appreciated because I hate stuffing my mask in my pocket or bag with no protection so having a bag for each one is extremely helpful to me. The paracord I ordered is vibrant and fun and matches the masks beautifully! So sturdy and extremely comfortable for long term wear as well. There are care instructions included, as well as a beautiful letter detailing the safety precautions the artists are taking while making the masks which I know can be extremely comforting for people ordering online. Overall in love with my masks and pleasantly surprised by my experience ordering here! Will definitely be taking a road trip to visit the gallery during my vacation to say a personal thank you!

    Love, love, love these! Finally found a style that works really well for me that is comfortable. I can breathe, laugh and talk in these without the mask sliding down my nose or up into my eyes. I love that they come in multiple sizes– the child size fits my 4 year old perfectly, small is good for me, and medium for my mother. The nose piece helps the mask sit where it needs to (didn’t order any without) and the multiple options for how you wear it (ear loops, bungee etc.) are fantastic! Also LOVE the choices of prints! Easy to hand wash and dry over night. I get a lot of compliments on these and now exclusively wear them. I very highly recommend. Well worth the price. 😀
    I had a question about sizing which was answered very quickly and sizing was then added to the website! Loved how user friendly the website was.

    The fabric is lovely and comfortable. Compared with other masks these are the easiest to breathe with and the most comfortable. I gifted out some of these masks and each person has said it is their favourite. The cotton only masks were great to breathe through, but my one mask with silk is even better to breathe with – I’ll wear that one for longer stretches. Excellent and considerate service. Packaged well.

    I purchased two COVID-19 masks from Verity Blue Studio and am exceptionally pleased with the quality and design. There is a huge selection of fabric colours and patterns to suit any taste. The masks are comfortable, lined, with a fitted nose, and no pressure ear loops. I wear glasses so fogging and condensation have always been an issue, until now. It is also easy to wash. I highly recommend this quality mask and have received many compliments.
