A few weeks ago, we received an email from Etsy, asking all and every able Etsy seller to make cotton masks. The CDC also came out recomendations, asking the general public to wear cotton masks, allowing surgical & N95 masks to remain available for our heroes on the front lines.
I decided to convert a part of our studio aka "The CORONA Corner" to solely work on making handmade premium cotton masks. With keeping in mind that many people are financially struggling, we priced our masks to be affordable and from the highest quality cottons available.
If you are not able to afford a mask, please contact us - many people have been purchasing our masks to be donated and we would be more than happy to send you one!
If you would like to donated a mask to someone in need/elderly/doctors office, please write in the notes at checkout "PLEASE DONATE" and we will pass your mask along to the right place.
A portion of all proceeds from your purchase will be donated to benefit a charitable campaign set up to assist a widow and her 9 children who lost their father due to COVID19.
