A few reasons!
It creates more opportunities for designers on the TeePublic Marketplace and it allows us to give back by donating one-medical grade mask for each fabric mask sold.
CDC guidelines also now recommend wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
-Control and Prevention (CDC) (3 April 2020)
Due to a high demand and limitations on our production capabilities, we are only allowing customers to order 10 masks at a time, and no more than one order per month.
For each fabric mask that TeePublic sells, we will be donating one medical-grade mask. For more information on the donations we're giving for every mask sold, please check out our How We're Helping article.
What are the masks made of?
The double-layer face masks are made of a sublimated polyester exterior with a soft microfiber lining for added comfort and improved fit - pleats allow the mask to expand for increased coverage and elastic ear loops keep everything securely in place. Lining allows for insertion of additional mask or filter - not included - between layers as desired. Elastic loops are 63% polyester and do include 37% latex.
