11 More Local Labels Making Fashion-Forward Reusable Masks
STORY: Diane Lam
23 June 2020
The last time we did a roundup of local apparel makers offering reusable masks, the circuit breaker had just started. Now that we're almost a week into Phase 2, reusable masks are more indispensable - and ubiquitous - than ever. Not a day goes by without our Instagram algorithms offering up something handsewn and adorned with French bulldogs or anthropomorphised sushi. And we'd be lying if we said that our collection of reusable masks wasn't getting dangerously close to exceeding our collection of pre-COVID fashion accessories.
Scroll below to see some of our favourites, for kids and adults alike:
Love vintage-inspired fashion? These double-layer cotton face masks, which range from $9-$10, come in sizes for both kids and adults.
