While homemade masks are not a substitute or replacement for N95 medical equipment, in this time of global crisis with healthcare workers in desperate need of masks and protective gear, sewers, and crafters are answering an unprecedented call to make and donate face masks.
This collection of videos from The Fabric Patch shows the benefits of different style masks and a variety of materials that can be used. We are proud that The fabric Patch selected Oly*fun nonwoven materials used in their mask design.

I would like to buy a quality cotton fabric mask with metal nose clip.filter pocket, PURPLE solid color, maybe 4 pleated face mask for woman. If available, I’ll purchase 3-4 purple masks. [email protected]
We do not currently sell finished masks. I would suggest checking some of your local sewing shops or Etsy to purchase finished masks.
I was given some metallic Oly*fun which is two-ply. Should the white backing be removed for use or is it integral to the fabrics characteristics?
Oly*fun Metallic consists of a Polypropylene non-woven material with a laminated metallic coating. The lamination of the metallic coating makes the material unbreathable and therefore not suited for face or head coverings. The original Oly*fun colors do not have a laminated coating.

Oly*fun has not been tested or approved for medical use or filtration capabilities. Its effectiveness as a germ barrier is unknown.
What is the maximum temperature at which OlyFun can be washed and maintain is hydrophobic properties? I intend to put it in a bag for washing.
We recommend hand washing or spot cleaning Oly*fun.
