Need a Reusable Cloth Mask? Etsy Has Over 150,000 for Kids and Adults

With the CDC officially recommending that all Americans wear some sort of cloth face covering to slow the spread of coronavirus, you may be scrambling to get your own. While making a face mask at home is totally feasible (the CDC even put together instructions on how to do so), cloth face masks are becoming more readily shoppable online. In fact, there are over 150,000 available on Etsy, where many sellers have recently added face masks to their storefronts.

Since the CDC emphasized that surgical masks and N-95 respirator masks should be reserved for medical professionals, purchasing a washable cloth face mask on Etsy is an easy way to support a small business while following CDC guidelines. Many of the face masks on the site use decorative and colorful fabrics, a fun and kid-friendly touch during uneasy times. 

Below, we rounded up six Etsy sellers located in the United States that are currently making reusable face masks. While you should generally expect longer delivery windows, many of these face masks are ready to ship in just a few days.

L Boutique By Olivia

L Boutique By Olivia is a custom dress shop for special occasions that has pivoted to making face masks for kids and adults. Shop owner Adele offers cotton masks in a variety of solid colors, and prices start at just $10.50 depending on the size you choose. The masks are available to ship in one to two days, and the store offers free shipping in the United States. Check out L Boutique By Olivia’s storefront here.

Bellacond By Bryana

Another mask-dedicated Etsy storefront, Bellacond By Bryana offers customizable face masks for children and adults. Store owner Bryana asks that you describe your size and pattern preference, which can include something different for both the front and back of the mask since it’s reversible. She also allows you to choose between elastic ear loops or ties, and if you’d like a filter slot. Depending on the availability, the masks are ready to ship in one day to a week.
