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. We have a few children in our family who have sensory issues, which meant comfort and wearability was paramount. The final product is comfortable, breathable and fits very well on a variety of shapes and sizes. 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 a few days to one week. 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 liners for those who would like extra protection, and optional nose wires for those who wear glasses and have a higher bridge.

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. Even though 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 & BC. Note that many items are not manufactured in Canada, but whatever is available we are using. See here for a list of our suppliers.

Children’s Masks

Children’s face coverings come standard with elastic around the head, with safety release toggles (while supplies last). You 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

Adult face coverings come in small, medium and large. Please note 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 x 13.7cm wide
Small size is 20cm long x 15.5cm wide
Medium size is 21.5cm long x 16.5cm wide
Large size is 23cm long x 18cm wide

    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!

      Wow. Stephanie thank you so much for your kind words. We are ecstatic that you are so pleased with your face coverings, as well as the process. I cried when I read this. The creation of these masks has been a labour of love, for sure. It began as a way to protect my family, and then grew. It thrills me to be of service.
      PS I would love to meet you in person if you take that road trip.
      best,
      Kathryn

    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.

      Thanks so much Lori. I was thrilled that you decided to purchase these masks. My family is so happy with them, and I very much wanted to share.
      Face coverings are definitely not all equal, and I am pleased that these are working for you and yours. xo

    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.

      Thanks so much Mandi. I’m so very happy that you are so pleased with your purchase. This is another review that brought tears to my eyes.
      I vow to write better reviews from now on. 🙂
      I know what it’s like ordering online with someone you don’t know at all. Flying blind so to speak. Thanks for your trust. Stay safe.

    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.
