It seems like every day a new retailer announces that they are starting to make fabric face masks. And while that’s incredible and very much needed, all of these new options can make finding the right face mask for you increasingly difficult.

Seeing as the Covid-19 pandemic is still ongoing, face masks have become a daily essential. As a reminder, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that people wear face masks in public settings where they cannot practice social distancing. Since people could have the virus and be asymptomatic, these masks are exceedingly important as their use can “slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.”

While there are masks of all shapes and sizes at this point, we are currently obsessing over the designs from Vida.

Described by founder and CEO Umaimah Mendhro as a collaboration between designers and makers around the world, Vida is a company that sells everything from apparel to home goods to (you guessed it) face masks that showcase international designs. Plus, not only do all those involved in an item’s creation receive equal return but every purchase allows Vida to support makers “and offer education and empowerment programs in our factories across the globe.”

So if you’re looking for a more unique, one-of-a-kind face mask to wear every day, consider the beautiful designs available from Vida. Not only do they sell traditional protective face masks, but you also can bring home multi-use cotton scarves and replaceable mask filters.
