FREE Shipping on this item!
- Completely machine washable and machine dry (no metal)
- 3 Layers - all 100% cotton (pre-washed)
- Choice of Elastic Ear Loops or a Cloth Strap
Elastic Ear Loops are 9" each - installed into each side casing, they are adjustable and removable. Elastic does wear out over time but easy to replace since we do not sew it into the fabric.
The Cloth Strap is 100% Cotton fabric. It is adjustable - goes completely around the head and ties at back of neck. The cloth strap can be washed and dried right along with the mask. It is also removable if you ever want to switch out to ear loops.
- Handmade in the U.S.A.
Made in the U.S.A. This cloth face mask can be ordered in size Medium or size Large. Medium fits most adult women and Large fits most adult males. If you are unsure if this will fit you, please email or call with your face measurements, because our masks are non-returnable for health reasons. If you think you might need a Cloth Strap that is longer than 46" or ear loops that are longer than 9" each, just send me a message with your order.
This style is nicely fitted and contains no metal or non-washable materials. A colorful display of cocktails and palm trees, the front has a black background and the reversible back side is beach sand with footprints. There is an inner layer - so three layers, all 100% cotton and all seams are concealed. For the mask fastener, choose the 100% cotton strap at an additional $5.00 (that strap is removable), or choose the elastic ear loops which are no additional charge.
ABOUT FASTENERS: There are pros and cons of both ear loops and cloth straps. Everybody is different so I am now offering you a choice. The cloth straps are known to be less stress on the ears and they provide a much more secure fit than elastic ear loops. They take a LOT of time to make, thus the cost. The elastic ear loops are so easy for putting your mask on/off. Some folks can't or don't want to be bothered with tying. Elastic DOES wear out, at some point you will have to change out the elastic so we made it easy to remove the elastic if you choose that option. The cloth strap will last as long as your mask, it is the same 100% cotton and washes and dries well. Elastic ear loops will leave some gaping at the side of your face, and if you try to make them too tight they will pull your ears forward. If you purchase your mask with the these standard elastic loops as fasteners, I loop each 9" piece through the casing and lightly tie it. You can then adjust each side and slide the knot into the casing and it will never be seen. Our elastic is very light weight and round shaped, and is about 1/8" thick. Anything over 1/4" in elastic is too stiff on my ear.
This 3 layer style is a nice lightweight and breathable mask, especially for this TEXAS heat!

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
The CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the Coronavirus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
Cloth face coverings should -
- fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- be secured with ties or ear loops
- include multiple layers of fabric
- allow for breathing without restriction
- be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
