My Favorite Face Mask
Why is this my favorite face mask?
There are so many things I want in a face mask, but one of the top considerations is that it is comfortable.
I designed these masks to cover the face well, to be adjustable, and to have a nose wire. I also made these masks reversible, created an easy to use filter pocket, and I designed them so you can remove and replace the adjustable head strap.
Size medium reversible face mask made with a purple cats fabric. The masks have adjustable head straps or ear loops. Made in the USA.
Adjustable Head Strap or Ear Loops
I wear glasses and I know a lot of people are wearing glasses and hearing aids, and sometimes it just is not possible to use a mask made with ear loops, so I designed this mask to be easily and comfortably used with a stretchy behind the head band, and this head band can be removed and replaced, which means you can customize it or repair it.

This Mask Will Last a Long Time
We used three layers of high quality tight weave cotton fabrics to make these reversible face masks. These fabrics wash well, they can be ironed, and they will last a long time. The mask is also reversible, just flip it and you can have a completely different look!
This reversible face mask design is adjustable, has a filter pocket, and the nose wire can be replaced. You can wear it with ear loops or behind the head straps.
The other thing that gives the mask longevity is that you can remove and replace the nose wire, and you can remove and replace the behind the head strap. You can change this strap into ear loops, or swap the loops out for a head strap. The card we ship with the mask has a little more information on updating of customizing your face mask.
Layers for Safety
Do you want to wear multiple layers of masks? Our reversible face mask can be layered over other masks, including the big N95 (and similar types) that cup over the face. The adjustable straps and ear loops on our face mask design makes it versatile for layering up.
Our face mask is adjustable and can be work over an N95 and other face masks with a similar shape.
Size Medium or Large
We’ve already cut and sewn these masks and made them in either Medium or Large. The Medium was created with pre-teens, teens and women in mind, but honestly, because it is adjustable, many men will also be able to wear it. The Large is longer and wide, offering better coverage for people with broader faces, bigger chins, and thicker beards. I am a woman and can wear either size, but the large does visually overwhelm my face more.

How This Design Has Evolved
At first we were making these masks with an adjustable ribbon head band, and while the ribbon is fun, it didn’t work well for everyone because it can slip on the hair. While barrettes can help keep the ribbon in place, my favorite way to wear this style of mask is with the stretchy knit fabric head band or the stretchy knit fabric ear loops. We can also ship these masks with an elastic behind the head band.
Other Face Mask Styles
We also manufactured a classic contour face mask, and I’ve found that this design can also be work layered over pleated surgical face masks and masks made with the cup shape, including the N95 masks.
Masks for Children
We have face masks for kids! We have a good selection of three-layer cotton fabric face masks for kids ages about 4 – 10. If you’re looking for face masks for kids about 11 years or older, look at our size medium contour face mask, or our size medium reversible face masks.
More On Our Fabrics
Our company designs and manufactures cat beds, so we have cat-loving customers and requested cat theme fabrics. Many of our face masks are made with cat-theme fabrics, but we’ve also made our reversible face mask designs in solid grey, solid black, royal blue, floral prints and geometric prints. We even made a cute wiener dog face mask!
