Got Accordion Masks?
We do! We are partnering with Custom Collaborative, a New York City-based entrepreneurship and workforce development program that trains and supports women from low-income and immigrant communities to launch fashion careers and businesses.
Custom Collaborative’s community of makers have designed a limited-edition face mask in partnership with NiLu, a Gift Boutique in Harlem NY. For each mask purchased, they will donate a mask to Harlem Nursing Center.
Shipping, Mask Doctor, and How are responding to covid-19
Currently shipping all masks and other products by USPS Priority (3-5 days) due to reduced flights affecting all other services. International shipping: DHL recommended. If you choose regular international shipping, please expect over 30-60 days for Canada and Europe. It will take 2 months or longer for many other countries.
Your health is important. If you would like to retrofit your masks to nose wire, elastics around head, ear loop, add toggles, please write to us email@example.com. We will help you and make sure your masks fit you.
Proceeds from VPL Masks have been donated to Fashion Girls For Humanity's Gowns For Good initiative. To learn more about where your contribution is going each time you purchase one of our masks please take a look at our new video here.
Obi Mask Collection
There are many types of obi: wide obi made of brocade and narrower, simpler obi for everyday wear. Obi is the most luxurious textile created by artisans throughout Japan. Used now to make masks, the first structure gives a room to breath, and it's appropriate for formal occasions.

Our original style masks with elastics around head are back due to popular demand. Limited number in stock. They now come with cord stopper toggles to adjust the length. We also offer optional nose wire for this collection.
