FABRICS FOR FACE MASKS

We have seen a trend on customers buying 100% cotton or 52/48 cotton poly blend on jersey in black and white for face masks.  Probably following guidelines of masks production given by Kaiser Permanente that calls for 2 layers of cotton fabric or cotton blend fabric. We also have customers buying cotton spandex jersey weighing at least 10 oz.  Whatever you are looking for to use, choose the best fabric that is soft to the skin and breathable.  There is no substitute for social distancing but wearing a face covering when in public is an added protection for you and those around you.  California Textile Group also has the chemicals for Anti-microbial finishing.  We can apply to any fabric you choose.  Advantages of this treatment is antimicrobial finishing suppresses the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi and bacteria which causes unpleasant odors, discoloration, staining, deterioration and corrosion.   Stay safe, follow social distancing and face covering guidelines.  We will get through this difficult time together.
