It appears that face masks will be part of our lives until the threat of COVID-19 has passed. The CDC recommends that we wear non-medical grade cloth coverings when in situations where physical distancing is hard to maintain—such as at the grocery store or pharmacy. When this guideline was issued, many companies and independent makers shifted their focus to creating colorful masks that both comply with the CDC and allow you to express your personality while wearing them. Threadless is one of the latest companies to offer a robust selection of masks, and they are doing so with the help of a variety of artists. Best of all, there's a charitable component to it all, too.

Threadless has a wide array of designs that decorate their cloth face masks. From cats to flowers to cartoon characters, you’re sure to find something that appeals to you. Each mask is made with three-ply polyester that is intended to be form-fitting with a built-in wire to lay across your nose. There are elastic ear hoops on either side and they are one size fits all.

To help do their part in the coronavirus crisis, Threadless is donating 100% of the net proceeds they earn from each sale of these masks (up to a $250K maximum donation). They are supporting MedShare, which is a non-profit organization that delivers surplus medical supplies to communities in need around the world.

If you’re an artist, you can participate in this initiative by uploading your own logo or design. Anyone can purchase a face mask by visiting Threadless.

Threadless is now selling cloth face masks with surface designs created by artists.
