WHY IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR HOPES UP:
We have the experience, we have the material and we have the drive. We are ready to spread hope and empowerment through inspired action; and we’re asking you to join us.
During these unique times of crisis, we encourage you to renew your mind to hope and say “Not Today, Fear!” And as you take all the necessary precautions, train your self to exude that intentional confident expectation of good in the midst of the trials. This will bring you into a purposeful and resourceful state. Your creativity will rise and you’ll find ways to be a part of the solution. Whether it’s an encouraging word you send to a loved one; or food and supplies you can share; or perhaps a new innovative business idea - your hope and your significance will collide in a remarkable way. Someone will remember you for your kind words, deeds, resilience and problem solving initiative.
Making these masks have struck a nerve with us. We love to design, we love to give and we love to encourage and solve problems. Therefore we’ve added this collection and dedicated manual time and labor to creating these for our community.
As a small business, we ask you, our tribe to help support our initiative. When you purchase your masks, you are making the production of masks possible in one of a couple of ways:
1.One for you and one for FOR YOU TO GIVE to someone working in the front lines, or a loved one.
2. One for you and the other THAT WE WILL DONATE to those working on front lines in our tribe — in the health sector, grocery stores, and restaurants etc
You will get to decide which of these options suit you during checkout.
We developed these non-surgical masks after research on best practices, fit, functionality, versatility and most effective and available filter materials as well as fun 100% cotton Ankara wax print patterns! They are not direct substitutes for practicing physical /social distancing nor are they a substitute for procedural masks. They are not FDA approved.
These masks, however when used in conjunction with other precautions should help contribute to decreasing person-to-person droplet transmission.

-Reshapeable nose bridge for protection and breathability
-Removable elastic for fitting to your size or replacing with a long string/ribbon of your own.
-Built in pocket to insert or remove filter
-Comes with disposable high performance filter, and s couple of extra filters (while supplies last).
HOW YOU USE IT:
- Insert filter: Insert disposable filter cut from available materials into the inner mask pocket: Recent recommendations include HEPA grade filters used in air purifiers or air-conditioning units. Blue Shop Towels, Vacuum cleaner bags are also said to be very effective, as well as disposable paper materials like coffee filters. The effectiveness of these suggestions have a range. And come with the support of being sandwiched between two cotton pieces.
- Ensure secure fit: To help ensure air flows through the filtered mask only, we recommend using double-sided tape to seal the mask around the nose and cheeks.
- Dispose of filter, wash & reuse mask: The filter should be disposed of after use, and the mask should be hand washed at high temperature.
