As the coronavirus pandemic continues in the U.S., wearing face masks has become a major topic for debate. Some states recommend that everyone wear a cloth face covering in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain while others have made it a requirement.
For instance, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a new executive order last week, allowing private stores to bar entry to customers not wearing a face covering. New York had already been requiring individuals to wear face coverings in instances when social distancing is not possible, as well as while riding public transportation.
While many Americans have been slower on adapting to the safety precaution, now the health precaution has seemingly become a much-needed accessory, with retailers and brands alike selling their own washable, cloth versions. In addition to Amazon and Etsy, where independent designers have face masks inspired by high-end fashion houses like Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and more.
