Cloth Masks by Turiya
I WILL BE TAKING SOME TIME OFF FROM MASK MAKING AS I AM IN THE PROCESS OF MOVING. HOWEVER, the store will be stocked with more items once I get settled into my new place. Check back in mid-late August!
These masks are made by me with TLC and a desire to make being safer fashionable.***
All of my cloth masks have the following features:
- 100% calico/quilting cotton patterned front
- 100% cotton t-shirt back
- Filti filter fabric sewn in as middle additional fabric layer.
(Details on their website have changed since my initial purchase,see www.Filti.com)
- A copper, 20 gauge, wire piece sewn in at top of nose.This allows for easy, minimal pressure contouring that helps with fit and eyeglass steam.
- Pleats that aid in creating a closer fit on the sides of mouth, and allow for adjustments in coverage.
- Color-coordinated, bias tape ties line the top and bottom for tying and style.
- There are currently 20 fabric patterns to choose from!

*** DISCLAIMER*** Please be advised that these are NOT surgical grade N95 masks. However, the CDC recommends folks wear cloth masks to help protect others and help lessen the spread of COVID-19. Also, information about COVID-19 is regularly adapting and being updated
as people better understand it. Please see www.CDC.gov for more info.
Cleaning and Care Updated Info:
There are many thoughts on cleaning and care of cloth masks. Please use your best judgement with resources available to you.
Do not iron the mask!
Gently adjust the wire
Suggestions I have come across in my research (in addition to washing and drying masks in the W & D are below):
- Some recommend baking masks, between 2 sheets of aluminum foil, at 155 degrees F, along with a container of water in the oven, for 30 minutes. (I tried this with my masks and they survived.)
- Some recommend sunlight as a means of drying/ disinfecting
- Some recommend adding disinfecting bleach to the washing machine (the way you normally would add it to wash a load).
- The virus has a shelf life, so also, leaving laundry resting means it is also slowly deteriorating while waiting to be washed.
