COVID-19 Updates: Recomendations from World Health Organization on Cloths Masks

Quality Construction

Our masks have been thoughtfully constructed for comfort, fashion, and responsibility.  Much time and many prototypes have gone into the construction of each one of Meg's masks.

Three Layers of Fabric*

First, we start with three layers of fabric.  We sew together one layer of 100% cotton outer fabric and two layers of 100% cotton gauze for the inner-fabric.  This inner-fabric gauze is very soft to the touch.  Your face will thank you. :)

In total, there are three layers of fabric between what you breathe in and what you might sneeze or cough out. :)

*Except Social Distancing Collection, which is single layer.

Contour Nose Wire

 

For a mask to be quality, it must fit.  A proper mask will not leave gaps for unwanted particulates to bi-pass its protective function.

We use an easily bendable soft wire that is sewn into the top seam.  This soft contour wire runs from one edge to the other to ensure a proper fit to your face.

Four Comfort Pleats

 

Our face covers are hand sewn in such a way as to expand and contour naturally to fit the beautiful curves of your face.  The two upper and lower pleats and edges naturally expand upward to fit over your nose and downward to fit under your chin; with plenty of space to breathe.  Simply put, Meg's masks fit the way you want them to - comfortably and naturally.

 

Soft Lycra Ear Straps

 

Many masks have the ear straps sewn to the upper and lower corners of the face cover.  As you may have noticed, this less expensive construction can causes gaps that reduce intended functionally and may result in an unnatural look and feel.

In contrast, all of our masks are constructed such that the soft Lycra (not inexpensive athletic supporter-style elastic) ear strap runs through a side seam.  This allows the ear straps to float through the side seam.  This creates a contoured fit and avoids unprotected and misfit spaces between your face and the mask. 

 

Czech Glass Beads

 

Each soft ear strap is threaded through a glass bead that has been hand made in the Northern Bohemia region of Czechoslovakia.  The glass beads allow for easy micro-adjusting for a perfect fit - not too tight, not too loose.  The trailing hand knotted ends are unmistakably Meg's.

 

Meg's Quality Masks

 

Meg's Masks take up to three times as long to cut, sew and finish than other quick-to-market masks looking to capitalize on the COVID-19 pandemic.  Once you wear a Meg's Mask, you will feel and breathe in the quality difference.  

With your support, we will continue to improve quality to give you the most comfortable, fashionable and responsible masks in the world.
