Our thoughts are with everyone that is currently affected (directly or indirectly) by COVID-19. With mask-wearing now mandatory in public places across Victoria and recommended in public places in NSW and Auckland, we are thankful that some great local labels are now making face masks.

Although not medical masks, many of these reusable locally-made styles do comply with DHHS guidelines and are helping us to blend fashion with function during these unprecedented times.

With so many brands’ masks selling out fast, here is our list of some more local labels making face masks that you should know about.

 

Mesa Studios

Melbourne-based Mesa Studios is making reversible and reusable linen masks in beautiful colours like green/rust and cream/sunset yellow. These masks comply with DHHS guidelines and feature three layers, including two layers of 100% 220gsm linen and an extra layer of cotton for protection.

 

Kuwaii

Local Melbourne label — and WMC favourite – Kuwaii is also making masks at the moment. The brand has two styles, in navy and a fun botanical print, both of which are made from high quality surplus fabrics and are available for pre-order.  

 

Permanent Vacation

Permanent Vacation is another brand that is currently making reusable face masks in Melbourne, using responsibly-produced cotton from Osaka. The cute masks come in a blue or red colourway, with gingham on one side and a floral pattern on the other.


Ovna Ovich


​If you're in New Zealand and need a mask asap, @ovna_ovich is making masks in their Auckland studio using material off-cuts from previous seasons, and is shipping them out daily.


Tasi Travels

Queensland-based Tasi Travels is also making triple layer face masks from ethically sourced fabric offcuts right now. These masks come in a range of classic colours or prints and are locally-made on the Sunshine Coast.


A bunch of other brands, like The Social Studio, Obus and Arnsdorf are still making masks as well! While their styles are currently sold out, you can pre-order or keep checking back for new drops.
