From coast to coast and around the world we are being advised to wear face masks in public for the foreseeable future. Our new normal. As medical masks are being reserved for the medical community all manner of face-coverings have become the flavor du jour. From the various articles on how to make your own, like this one in the NY Times, to Vogue‘s stylish ones. We love how some designers and small business owners have pivoted and started making masks to help protect others and their local communities. From repurposed factories in LA to kitchen tables in Dublin these are some of our favorite face masks.
