Sometimes, simple is really all you need. This two-layer royal blue and natural Simple Cotton Face Mask is a great option for adults who don't need an additional filter for breathing protection and who are looking for an elastic ear band. Easy on, easy off for those quick runs to the grocery store or for long days in the office or at school. These masks are a little bit larger than most, which is great for many people! We also recommend washing before wearing the first time.
These masks are handmade in Haiti by the artisans of 2nd Story Goods who have already battled extreme political unrest and natural disasters for the past two years and who now face the devastating effects of COVID-19 upon their crumbling economy. After essentially shutting down their country, all tourism, and transportation in and out of Haiti, 2nd Story Goods artisans shifted gears to meet the needs of the Haitian people in their own neighborhoods and cities.
"The Mask Making project is designed to work in the local economy of Gonaives. Purchasing fabric from the local market, paying tailors their living wage and most importantly, getting the price down to where people in the city can purchase them for their clinics and families: a little over $1 a piece."
Now, thankfully, they are also able to provide masks for the United States. Your purchase of this mask will provide a little financial relief to the artisans and their families. Changing lives, one mask at a time.
