Wearing a mask is an easy thing we can do right now to help protect others (and ourselves) so today I wanted to share a variety of colorful face masks for kids and adults all from small businesses!
So many small businesses have pivoted to create beautiful masks in what has been an incredibly hard time for entrepreneurs. If you are looking to purchase a mask, I highly encourage you to shop small or local! Hopefully this round-up provides you with a good start!
Many of these companies are doing 1:1 or other donation models with their mask sales, those are all indicated by being bolded in the source lists below. Additionally, many sell both kid and adult sizes, and those are all indicated with a ** in the source list below, if you want to get masks for the whole family in one spot. Hope you find something you love!
Note: Fabric masks are not a replacement for or equivalent to medical-grade masks or devices. And, because all of these come from small businesses and many are handmade, there are often periods where the masks are sold out.
If you’re interested in a mask that is sold out right now, follow the company on Instagram, sign up for their emails or do a pre-order (if available) in order to be notified when their masks come back into stock! I’ve found that most do come back into stock, but quantities are small so notifications help!
Colorful Face Masks for Adults
Here are a few of my favorite colorful adult face masks. Tie dye masks seem to be quite popular, so you’ll find a few different varieties linked here! The embroidered ones are probably my favorite though. So beautiful!
I encourage you to check out the websites of each maker as many have several styles, patterns or color ways available that you might like even more than the ones I’ve picked! They also all have some incredible other products to check out, while you’re shopping/ordering!
Additionally, each mask is constructed differently. Some have filter pockets, some have nose wires, some have specific washing instructions, etc. Be sure to read the details so you can pick the one that best suits what you’re looking for, functionality-wise!
Colorful Face Masks for Kids
Sometimes it’s all about a mask being “fun” for a kiddo to be more open to wearing one, so I tried to include a variety of fun themes and colors in the masks here!
Similar to the adult masks, almost all of these companies have additional styles and color ways so be sure to click through and check them out! Additionally, several have a variety of kid sizes, from toddler to teen, so I recommend reviewing the age bracket suggested for each one!
If you’ve purchased a mask from another small business that I didn’t list here, leave it below! I’d love to check it out and I’m sure others would too!
Alternatively, if you’d like to make your own mask, I shared a tutorial on Instagram here.
Thank you for working to keep our communities safe! We’re all in this together.
