While wearing a non-medical mask or face covering has not been proven to protect the person wearing it from coronavirus, when worn properly, it can help reduce the spread of infectious respiratory droplets. Note: Wearing a mask is not a substitute for good hygiene, such as washing your hands, and public health measures, including physical distancing. It’s not one or the other! The Government of Canada has provided two no-sew tutorials (we’ve also compiled a few here) and guidelines for wearing a mask. If you’re looking to purchase one, or a few, here’s a list of Canadian fashion brands that are now selling masks – there’s never been a better time to support local businesses. And if you’re in Quebec, here are 30 locally made options in the province.

OLIVE + SPLASH

As the coronavirus pandemic progressed, Olive + Splash founder Melanie Wong looked for a way to ensure that customers could pick up their packages safely. Her solution? A contactless “drive-thru” at the company’s Burlington, Ont. warehouse – all you have to do is pull up to the window. In addition to their line of unisex athleisure, the brand is making masks with the same bamboo cotton fabric. “I was going to the grocery store with a bandana tied around my face and it didn’t feel safe,” says Wong. Along with safety, the masks were designed with comfort and style in mind. “There’s a little arch for your nose to fit in and then it slips down so if you wear glasses, it’s not pushing up on them.” Shop: $22.99-$49.99, oliveandsplash.com

Four Canadian Fashion Brands Making Face Masks for Consumers

Here's how to protect yourself (and others!) and support a local business at the same time.

With social distancing orders still very much in effect across Canada, fashion brands are increasingly coming up with ways to help support the community at this time, including pivoting manufacturing to produce PPE for hospitals and frontline workers. Now, a handful of brands have also committed to producing face masks for consumers to help protect against the spread of COVID-19. You can, of course, make your own mask using materials you probably already have at home, or you can purchase a ready-made mask from one of the following brands:

Olive + Splash

Designer Melanie Wong has adopted a very clever approach for distributing the masks she is making for consumers as part of her fashion brand Olive + Splash. Wong has created face masks from bamboo cotton, which is antibacterial and hypoallergenic, and customers can pick up their purchases via a ‘drive-through experience’ at the brand’s warehouse in Ontario to ensure safety. The masks are available in seven colours and two sizes for adults and children with adjustable loop ends.

The masks are available as singles or in a pack of three, with prices starting at $20. Get yours here.

Family isn’t always blood

Family isn’t always blood

Words will never express the gratitude I have for all the families who support and assist with Olive + Splash. I am extremely fortunate to have met some of, if not the BEST people around and all through the journey of this small company. 

For the past 2 weeks I have trekked around Bosnia, Serbia, Prague and Switzerland gathering experience and inspiration for life and Olive + Splash. I mentioned in a previous post the opportunities and relationships that have been sewn through this company and how incredibly blessed I am to cross paths with some and keep others forever. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love surrounded by the best families who become family. 

I was invited to meet the extended family members of some Olive + Splash team mates and experience their culture in the heart of their hometown of Bosnia and Serbia. I stayed on their amazing farm fetching water from a well for morning ‘Kafa’ and collecting fresh eggs for breakfast (doručak) and using google translate to join in conversation 🙈 The friendships formed will last a lifetime and I can’t wait to go back. 

After Bosnia and Serbia I flew to Prague and I am so happy to have seen the breathtaking architectural design and literally eat everything...like everything. Prague you are a beauty and I will be back. 

I finished my trip at the top of Zermatt, Switzerland (Thank you Mary). This part of the trip was particularly cool because I skied the most picturesque mountain and tested Olive + Splash’s base layers and new products at altitudes and climatic temperatures that it was designed for and I am happy to say our apparel performs in all environmental conditions. 

This trip would not have taken place in this manner, if it was not for the relationships formed through this small company. I am forever grateful and thank you for having me.
