Where to Buy Yourself a Creative Mask from Independent Artists

It feels like we’re living in a real-life episode of Black Mirror. That seems crazy, but COVID-19 and quarantine have turned into reality.

Staying home is obviously important at this point, but if you have to get out of the house, a mask is definitely a must. And we don’t just mean a fashion “must”—we mean if you’re not wearing a mask, you’re an asshole. That’s just where we’re at right now. But fashion is still keeping up.

If you want to spice up your pandemic look, check out these independent artists contributing to the fashion/saving lives world. Get yourself a mask that not only makes you feel safe, but also looks trendy. Plus, many of these designers are using the mask money to help people on the front lines.

Sashay and stay six-feet away.

The most controversial rectangle of fabric my generation has ever seen has arrived! The teal satin masks are free with any order (no minimum) but you must write “satin mask” in the comments at checkout. For every free mask I include with an order I’m donating one plain white cotton mask to a Los Angeles medical facility. UPDATE: these are gone and have been given all out

But make it fashion… I have this thing; I need everything around me to be beautiful. Our rabbit Brisby lives in a mid century armoire I converted for her because I cannot have a cage in my living room. I hide any appliance I can, and if we are going to wear masks I want mine to have flowers embroidered on it. I am blown away by the response to this. You guys have kept me busy and I’m so grateful. I thrive on being busy and useful and creative. You have made me that again after a period of uncertainty and waiting. I am working through this weeks orders and the waitlist for next week is already half full. If you would like to be added, peek into the highlights for instructions on how to reserve a spot. For every mask sold, I’m donating one to those in need. • • • #embroideredflowers #embroidery #embroideryart #embroideryflowers #embroideryartist #wearableart #quarentineartclub #fashionmask #fashionmasks #butmakeitfashion #makeitfashion #handmademasks #handmademask #homemademask #homemademasks #covidmask #coronamask #coronamasks #embroideredmask #flowerface #flowermask #floralmask #LAprotects
