Welcome! We are currently out of the studios. Orders placed during this time will ship beginning 9/20.

Mask availability, shipping and COVID-19 info

Mask Availability

We will be releasing small batches of masks each Monday while interest remains. Currently we are able to sew and ship out most mask orders within 1 week of your order.

 If masks are out of stock, or your preferred design is, please check back the following Monday. :)

Covid-19 and general shipping info.

We hope all are taking care of their mental and physical health during this time, respecting social distancing and use of masks, taking time to rest, checking in with your family, friends and community members, and supporting those you can.

As a result of COVID-19, our production is slowed with fewer of us in the studios, and delays in shipping may occur as we limit our outings. Our stock will be limited on some items due to the availability of materials from our suppliers during this time. Unexpected delays may occur
All orders, depending on their contents, will take 1-4 weeks to ship at this time. Please check face mask listings at the time of your order for specific shipping windows for masks. Non-mask items in your order will ship at the same time as your masks. Please contact us if you have a specific arrival date in mind for your order and we can let you know if it is a possibility.

USPS is doing their best to ship an unprecedented number of packages during this time! We and many other small business owners who rely on USPS have been noticing increased delays and issues with some shipments over the last few months. USPS is both overburdened with packages at the moment under COVID, and also facing a funding and management crisis- the result has been delayed packages and a lack of tracking updates and information along the way. Sometimes we are seeing packages not being scanned by the postal service until they reach their destination, and sometimes we are seeing packages disappear from tracking without any updates for up to a month and then being delivered. This means you may not see the tracking updates you are used to for your order's journey past the initial shipping notification. 

Thank you for your patience with both us and your mail carriers as you wait for your package to arrive! :) Shipping delays are 
super frustrating for both you and us. If you want to learn more about the mail delays many are facing across the country, this is a really informative and interesting Twitter thread from a small business owner that tracks with a lot of what we've been experiencing. Support postal worker's by visiting the American Postal Worker's Union Save the Post Office website for actions you can take to help protect our country's public mail service!

Below are a collection of resources we hope will make life a little easier and more interesting right now.
