As we all adjust to life during and after a global pandemic, I found myself looking for face masks for my wife and me that were:
- Washable and reusable
- Made by a small business or solo founder
- Didn’t look like we were about to rob a bank or perform surgery
So after a lot of research, questions, and reviews, I’ve narrowed down 4 entrepreneurial brands that adapted to make amazing face masks. We all know small businesses and entrepreneurs have been some of the hardest-hit businesses during these strange times. So if you’re going to spend your hard-earned money, it makes sense to support those who it will impact and benefit the most.
(Please note that the face masks featured are not recommended as a medical-grade protection device. They are meant to be worn over an N95 mask or have an extra layer to insert your own thin filter)
In alphabetical order, here is a quick list of the 4 best brands to buy face masks from online:
Eagle Rock WERKSHOP
Rose Face Mask
WERKSHOP is best known for its unique artist-designed and high-quality yoga apparel. Founder Chriztina Marie decided to reopen and redesign her studio to create face masks for her customers. If you’ve ever owned a pair of their leggings or tops, you’ll be happy to know they’re made from the same comfy athleisure fabric.

GE Face Mask
When it comes to silk and satin-lined products for women's hair, look no further than Grace Eleyae. They’ve taken the functional and fashionable fabrics used in their silk-lined caps (famously called the Slap), and created masks made out of their Ankara prints.

Precision 2 Mask
Starting at 37.50 CAD (pack of 3)
TakeCare Supply was born when a team of entrepreneurs came together to help relieve the pressure being put on medical-grade supplies by mass public purchasing. The team composed of a designer, public affairs leader, serial entrepreneur, and manufacturing experts quickly created quality face masks for front line workers and the community they service.

Oy Vey Mask
Unkosher Market is a brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously but is serious about its customers, supports and fans. True to form, they created a cheeky (no pun intended) face mask that speaks to their brand and how we all feel during these strange times. “...these black cotton tie masks are a conversation starter. Not that you want to talk to anybody right now.”
