My masks are made with brocade fronts, linen linings and either fabric or hand braided yarn ties.
The textiles are remnants from reclaimed sources. Most (but not all) of these textiles have been washed and dried, so your masks can be hand washed or sanitized with a steam iron. I’m also told that baking your mask in the oven at 140 degrees for 30 minutes will sanitize it.
CAUTION: DO NOT put my masks in your microwave – they have a metal nose bridge.
Through December 31, 2020 (or until there is no longer a need), your mask purchase will benefit Feed the Frontlines in Sacramento, andOff Their Platein Seattle and selected other cities throughout the US.

About My Hats:
I make my hats and masks by hand from mostly reclaimed textiles. All furs on my hats are gleaned from vintage coats. Other materials such as beads and lace are a combination of new and found objects.
Working with recycled materials prevents my catalog from reflecting the full range of available color and fabric options. Consider my catalog “an ice breaker” to our conversation about your order. I like to send fabric swatches, and will confirm every detail of your hat order before I begin.
To find your hat size, measure around your head at your eyebrows (in inches).
See examples of my previous works at my Portfolios page where you will also find a list of selected Galleries across the country. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my galleries are closed, however both Brookfield Craft Center and Peters Valley Center of the Arts are continuing to sell art online.

ALLERGEN ALERT – I own cats, and my shop is too small to completely segregate my furs, wools and non-wool textiles. If you are highly allergic to furs or wools, my hats might not be the best choice for you. If you are curious, you can meet the Shopcats here.
