I have been able to get my hands on some limited quantities of nose plates that I can include on request ONLY. Please note that creating a nose plate casing does create another line of sewing and further reduces the integrity of the mask however it does help with a better fit. The nose plates are flat and to keep shipping minimal in cost the nose plates will not be placed in the mask. These nose plates are removable for machine washing. They are not rust proof tested so if it is thrown in the wash I am unsure of what the outcome will be.
We are extremely grateful for all the support from our community. With that support we have been able to donate $2000 to the Food Bank with more to come. Thank you!!
We also have an elastic version available here
We have a pleated version that fits most 12 years and older - available here

Masks are reusable and machine or hand washable with warm water. We recommend washing it before first use. Please tie the ribbon in a loose knot so it does not unravel in the wash. We prefer to air dry our masks however they are dryer tested as well. All fabric has been pre-shrunk. Please DO NOT microwave the mask.
