Fashion and function. 17th Avenues Blondie Boutique is well known for being a bit over the top, and their face masks are no exception. Bottom line, they’re super cute – but they also work, and that’s what’s important, right? They come in a variety of colours and patterns and are made with cotton, so they’re incredibly soft.

Where: #101 – 1019 17 Ave SW and online here

KATE HEWKO

Kate Hewko is a fashion designer from right here in YYC. Her cloth masks are super cute, locally made, and are comfortable. She’s also selling PPE bucket hats, that are just as functional as they are adorably strange looking. These babies are going pretty quickly though, so check them out while you still can!

PURR CLOTHING

Purr is one of Calgary’s favourite local boutiques. Right now they’re selling funky reversible facemask in an array of colours and patterns. Their face coverings are all made locally, AND, $5 of every mask is donated to the Brenda Strafford Society, a foundation that supports women and children who have been a victim of domestic abuse.

OKE APPAREL 

Oke’s reusable facemasks are by far the most protective on this list. Made with anti-microbial silver infused cotton fibres, and a replaceable cotton filter, these masks will help filter the air on the way in, and on the way out. Fancy. Also, 20% of the profits made from their sales will go to support The Covid-19 Community Response Fund, and that’s something we can really get behind.
