Coal's pleated double-layer cotton face masks meet all CDC requirements for non-medical protective face covering to keep you and your community safe.
- Preshrunk tight-weave double layer cotton fabric.
- Adjustable nose bridge for snug fit.
- Washable and breathable.
- Elastic over-ear loops for a secure fit.
Wash & Care:
Wash regularly to limit the spread of germs, based on frequency of use. Hand wash with warm water, lay flat or hang dry. Do not dry clean.
How To Wear a Face Mask:
Fit your mask to your face by molding the bridge to your nose. When wearing do not touch the front, adjust only by touching the ear pieces. While out, make sure your mask fully covers your nose, mouth, and chin. Do not touch your eyes, nose, and mouth while wearing or during removal. Wash hands before and after use.

These are non-medical, non-N95 masks, which are currently reserved for healthcare workers. The CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering while social distancing and in crowded spaces to shield yourself and others. It's also recommended to wear a double-layer, natural fiber mask as these protect more than a synthetic fiber.
The CDC and Goverment of Canada now recommends that all people wear cloth masks in public, amid concerns that the virus is being spread by infected people who show no symptoms. Until now, the CDC and WHO have said that people don’t need to wear masks unless they are sick, but part of the reason was to preserve medical-grade masks for health care workers who desperately need masks which are continuously in short supply.
So, by wearing a non-medical lifestyle mask, you’re not only helping to protect your community and yourself, you’re ensuring frontline healthcare professionals have the medical-grade equipment they need.
This week Coal is launching reusable masks to help you follow the new CDC guidelines in style when you need to practice social distancing at the store or public place. They've utilized our quick-turn manufacturing capabilities to create some reusable, high-quality non medical masks you can wear to protect yourself, your loved ones and those around you.
(Disclaimer: these are not N-95 or surgical masks- those are currently reserved for healthcare workers and first responders.)
