Fabric face masks in Calgary
Looking for face masks in Calgary? Wearing a face mask is the cool thing to do these days! Covering up your face while out in public spaces and crowded places is one of the vital ways to help battle this pandemic (remember to keep washing your hands and use hand sanitizer too!). It also shows that you are helping the community and protecting others by doffing a face covering.
Buying a fabric face mask in Calgary is also great because you’re helping to minimize your environmental impact and create less waste compared to disposable masks. Reusable fabric masks are great as you can wash and rewear many times.
Update: Mandatory face masks are now required in indoor public spaces in Calgary as of August 1st, 2020. Make sure to stock up on your Calgary masks now.
Support local and buy a face mask from one of these local Calgary businesses (and look good at the same time too).

Calgary Face Masks: Riyoko
For years, designer Kristi Woo has made travel and cycling-oriented clothing for Calgarians. But for the pandemic, Riyoko is pivoting their business to include cloth face masks as well. These face masks are made of organic cotton and also come with your first filter.
These face masks use longer elastic that fits around the head and neck with a cordlock for tightening. However, you can also modify yourself by cutting the elastic so you can turn into ear loops instead. In addition, free curbside pickup is available if you want to stop by their shop at C-Space to pick up your masks.
Riyoko is making the face masks in different production batches (currently on production #7!). So order quickly and check the Riyoko website for the latest shopping links (see the face mask banner at top of page).
Calgary Face Masks: Alberta Apparel
These simple face masks from Alberta Apparel are as comfortable as the rest of their lifestyle gear. This shop is super local with all their garments cut and sewn right here in Canada with an entire Alberta-based team.
The face masks come in bulk quantities of six or ten (which is handy so you’ll always have extras when others are dirty). A copper wire helps ensure it fits to your nose properly. Additionally, tie-back strings allow these masks to fit to any user’s face size and shape comfortably.
Alberta Apparel face masks are sold at cost. Most important: free shipping is available on all mask orders. Order yours online at the AA website.
