That said, I woke up this morning thinking about face mask fit. Yes, I know I am weirdly obsessed about certain details. That is when the light bulb came on. This thing about fitting and filling spaces. I have been doing it all my life!! Fitting window spaces with draperies and curtains. Fitting chair covers. Even saddle fitting on our horses, which is like adding an insole to a shoe. The fitting of devices and tools into a compact tool belt for other professionals who work on their feet. I say other professionals because the word tool belt evokes an image of carpentry and construction workers. I asked why not change that image to include others who need to carry tools of their trade? Back to the subject of fitting, clothing construction and alterations was even a more complicated endeavor, making fabric fit around the curves and body movement. Sewn slippers,socks, mittens and hats. And now learning to better size and fit the contours of the face! The most effective masks form a snug seal around the nose and mouth.
So now going forward, face masks will be offered in my shop along with tool belts. Besides viruses, we need protection from other inhalants such as dust, pollen and pollution. Why not do it with a smaller carbon foot print or going green avoiding throw away masks? Leave the medical masks to the medical people. My masks are 100% cotton, machine washable with options. More details to follow. Be well and safe. This ride is not over yet!
