Why We Built This

We don’t want to feel like a top-secret ninja every time we go to the grocery store. We also wanted to create a light, breathable mask—something we wouldn’t mind wearing all day long.

Why It's Different

All the colors. Fully reversible. Made from repurposed fabric. And for each mask purchased, we give another high-quality mask to someone who needs it through our nonprofit partner, Mercy Corps.

About This Product

Description

Made using surplus fabric, these super comfortable, non-medical grade masks keep perfectly good materials out of the landfill. When you buy one, we donate a high-quality face mask to someone in need. When you wear one, you put the health of your community first.

Each mask follows CDC guidelines, is made from 100% tightly woven cotton, and includes two layers of fabric. To allow for breathability and ease of wear, the fabric is a lightweight cotton, similar to the weight of a dress shirt. Designed to be worn alone or over a disposable medical mask.

With its mask program Cotopaxi wanted to help solve for several major social issues. We knew suppliers and especially vulnerable workers, were feeling the impact of canceled orders due to COVID-19. To lessen the business shock upon our supply chain and utilize the remnant cotton fabric that had ended up as environmental waste within our factories, we worked with our suppliers to provide businesses with a way to supply their workers with PPE while also being able to donate additional masks to populations in need in South America. To date, we've donated over 100,000 masks to refugee populations in the Americas.

A note from our CEO

In designing this product, we focused on building a mask that was sustainable, comfortable, breathable, beautiful, and in line with CDC guidelines. We feel we accomplished those goals with our current mask, but as with all our products, we are always looking to improve. Customer feedback is an important part of improving product. While most have loved the fit, style, and comfort of the mask, some have expressed concern that the two-layered cotton fabric is too thin and makes them unsure if the mask protects as well as it needs to. We appreciate the feedback and are already working with our design and manufacturing teams to use slightly thicker cotton material in future versions of the mask. In the meantime, if you are someone worried about the thickness of your mask, we would encourage you to double up the mask, pair it with a medical grade mask, or resort to a different mask altogether. 

Care Instructions
Cloth face coverings are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with other preventative measures and social distancing. The CDC advises washing cloth face coverings after each use. This means that even though our masks are reversible, they still need to be washed before wearing the reverse side. We recommend following CDC instructions for washing and drying your mask. Because our masks are 100% cotton, they may become wrinkled after washing, and their pleats may need to be ironed back into place. To avoid ironing, flatten fabric after washing and lay flat to air dry.

Machine Wash Cold, Tumble Dry Low, Warm Iron if Needed, Do Not Iron Plastic Adjusters, Do Not Bleach


What is the Teca Cotton Face Mask’s Fabric Blend? 
Per the CDC’s recommendation, our face masks are made from 100% tightly woven cotton.

Is the Teca Cotton Face Mask Medical Grade? 
Our face masks are not medical grade. However, they may extend the life of a medical grade mask, and can be worn over most medical grade masks as an additional precautionary measure. 

Can I Put a Filter Inside My Teca Cotton Face Mask? 
Our face masks are not filter compatible, and are not meant to replace medical grade face masks. That said, cloth face coverings may slow the spread of the virus, and the CDC recommends wearing them in public settings.

These Masks Seem Thinner Than What I’m Used to. Are They Still Safe?
We designed these masks to be lightweight and breathable, so they can be comfortably worn for long periods of time. Should you want additional protection, our mask fits over most medical grade masks.
