Despite having a collection of reusable face masks hanging by our door, one in a purse, a back-up in the glove compartment and a couple in the laundry, we still managed once in a while to catch ourselves without a mask. Inevitably we would remember just after we drove away that we’d taken the backup mask out of its convenient location and left it at home.
One of those forgetful days, our founder decided that an even more convenient way to always have a mask with you, would be to make a tiny tote. One that, with the help of a mini carabiner, could fit on your keychain, on a child’s backpack or your dad’s belt loop, so that not only do you always have a mask with you, but you have a handy carrying pouch to return it to!
Our original tiny totes are hand-made using Ottertex Ripstop Nylon; durable, water-resistant, machine washable and light. We also offer limited edition totes made from various alternative materials. In order to reduce waste, we highly encourage you to make your Tiny Tote a set by adding one of our soft, stretchy neoprene and cotton reusable masks that wicks moisture preventing humidity.
The World Health Organization's statement on wearing face masks in public:
"Masks should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives; the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19. You should also maintain a minimum physical distance of at least 1 metre from others, frequently clean your hands and avoid touching your face and mask."
