As Ohio begins to reopen, you’re going to need a mask or some kind of face coverage to go to stores, restaurants and work. So we added a new collection of three mask makers that provide the style, comfort and protection to join the trend. Don’t miss our first mask write-up featuring Ilthy, Yellowcake and Cool Critters.
The Columbus-based apparel maker had already been delivering great coronavirus-inspired gear, such as “Not All Heroes Wear Capes” T-shirt,” when it added a new collection of Ohio-themed masks. The six simple colorways, including brown and orange, scarlet and grey and royal blue and red, are tasteful ways to nod to your favorite team. Made entirely of the same material as a Homage Tee, the cotton, rayon and polyester blend is comfortable and breathable and comes individually ($9) and in bundles of more than five ($8 each). Plus, Homage donates $1 to 100Kmasks for Ohio for every mask sold. “It’s got to be comfortable so you won’t want to take it off every few minutes because it’s bothering,” says Senior Marketing Manager Mark Jaworski. homage.com
These organic masks ensure keep you safe in more ways than one. Featuring adjustable straps, the masks ($49 for six), a double layer of certified organic cotton in these CDC-compliant masks keep you free of synthetic chemicals found in many fabrics, says Naturepedic co-Founder Jason Cik. “Every single thing that we do and make, we double and triple check to make sure there is nothing in there that’s harmful to a consumer,” said Co-Founder Jason Cik. naturepedic.com
Support the Land
You might not be able to watch the Cavs, Indians and Browns yet, but you can rep your favorite Cleveland teams on a Support the Land face mask. The Gridiron collection, for example, features home and away brown and orange stripes above Cleveland’s skyline, while the Court collection gives you throwback vibes. The polyester masks also feature a slot to insert a filter. For every three-pack ($44) purchased, the business donates $5 to the Cleveland Food Bank. “Even though we're not currently manufacturing or living [in Cleveland], we're doing our best to give back to the community,” said owner and Ohio native Joe Idone. “[Cleveland] raised us and we feel a big source of pride towards the city.” supportthelandmasks.com
