Gator Co. is leveraging its sewn goods design and manufacturing abilities to help those in need during the COVID-19 crisis. It is answering the call for more masks with a line of fabric masks that include a pocket for replaceable filters and music-themed designs.
The masks and filters will be available for retail and online sales with sales proceeds going toward the donation of masks and filters to those in need.
“The demand for masks is very serious,” said Crystal Morris, founder and CEO of Gator Co. “I read the media reports and researched ways we can help with the mask shortage. We needed to respond, and we have the capabilities to make a positive impact. And we wanted to stick to our music roots with a few fun music patterns. We’re excited to be able to help in any way as we all rally to get through this.
The masks are made from cotton fabric for comfort with adjustable straps for a secure fit. Each mask will be sold with a felt replacement filter cut to fit inside the mask. Five patterns are available now, including two music-themed patterns. Packages also includes die-cut instructions for people to make their own replaceable filters. Felt replacement filters are also for sale in three-packs.
Product features of the masks include:
- Machine-washable and reusable
- 100-percent cotton outer layer
- Organic cotton jersey knit inner layer
- Pocket to hold replaceable filter
- Adjustable straps for secure fit
- Felt replacement filter
