BESPOKE COUTURE & BRIDAL
BESPOKE COUTURE & BRIDAL
*TAILORED FULL COVERAGE FACE MASKS: Even though we are currently on sabbatical from making couture-During this time of Covid 19, we think the best way to serve the needs of our community is to focus on making the best built, most comfortable PPE we can. OUR MASKS ARE MADE-TO-ORDER. We are making them specifically for you in the patterns, and fits you choose. If you have special considerations in sizing- please let us know. We are truly custom cutting and sewing them.
PLEASE NOTE :) Our business will be taking a break from manufacturing from July 6th thru July 14th. You can place your orders now however, and they will go into work on the 14th.From then expect a turn time of 7 days or less to produce them.
FITS & SIZING: There are 2 basic fits. Regular and Sleek. Both come in XS (or children's) thru L. The size chart, with instructions on how to measure yourself to determine best size is the same for both fits, and is attached to each mask style option.(See more detailed information below for the two style options)
OUR REGULAR FIT MASK:
Designed to be worn and washed many times; OUR REGULAR-FIT MASK is 2 layers of cotton with one Fused non-woven filter layer, (as suggested in the H1N1 studies done by Cambridge University) and a filter pocket to add an additional layer if you choose: This is the mask you see on every single face in this grid. It is very comfortable on a variety of faces, and gives you a little more room around your mouth if you will be wearing it and doing lots of talking, running, etc. ( For your reference: almost every adult in this grid is shown in a size M. See the sizing chart in each fabric option to see how to measure for sizing ) Washable cotton exterior, fusible interfacing lined, reversible, with a filter pocket and an adjustable laser cut stainless steel nose-bridge for a tight fit to follow the contours of your face. The nose-bridge helps mitigate outside air from going around the edges of your mask, (to make sure you are breathing only filtered air) keeps your glasses from fogging up, and helps it to stay securely in place while working or playing. In S,M,L, & Children's (or XS).
FASTENING OPTIONS: Adults: adjustable ear loops, full head elastic or ties. Children's: have elasticated ties or ear loops. Please specify in NOTES if you want loops or ties. This style is shipped with some Blue Shop Towel filters, cut to size, as your added disposable filter layer, so you have a template to cut your own afterwards.
OUR SLEEK FIT MASKS:
OUR SLEEKER FIT MASK: 4 layers (2 layers of cotton fabric, and 2 layers of fusible interfacing) with a sleeker contour. This mask is perfect for more petite faces. Particularly women's. It has approximately the same coverage, but a bit less fullness to the pleats. This mask looks better without a filter pocket, so we added an additional layer of fusible into the mask so that additional layer is always in there. By request- your mask can be made with only one layer of interfacing and a filter pocket as well, so please let us know if that's your desire in the NOTES: box.We have been producing it that way for many clients on request.
SIZING: for the sleek mask is THE SAME as the regular fit. Please see the chart for how to measure your size. Charts located in each pattern selection area.
FASTENING OPTIONS: Adults: adjustable ear loops, full head elastic or ties. Children's: have elasticated ties or ear loops. Please specify in NOTES if you want loops or ties.
OUR EAR LOOP MASKS:
Our new reversible ear loop masks offer all the functionality of our full elastic masks, with either a 3 layer construction (one layer of fusible interfacing) plus a filter pocket - or a 4 layer construction (two layers of fusible interfacing and no filter pocket) option, with the ease of a simple adjustable elasticated ear loop which ensures your mask can fit snugly and comfortably to your particular frame wash after wash. It still has a laser cut steel nose-bridge to keep a nice tight fit, and it stays put well during excercise, and is easy on and off.
We've tested it out hiking, running, landscaping, and just running errands, and found it to work super well :)
MATCHING POCKET SQUARES:
For you or the debonair gent in your life.To match the front side of our masks. The squares are sized at 10x10" to avoid being bulky in a suit breast pocket, and finished with a handkerchief edge. They are $20 each. The finish is beautiful with clean mired corners.
PRINTS AVAILABLE: Masks and squares come in the print options shown in our catalog, which we will continue to update as colorways sell out, and we get new ones in. If a colorway runs out between you placing your order, and us cutting it- we'll reach out to you and ask you if you have another you like as a substitute. Why so many?? We have a huge re-order business. Most of our customers order from us multiple times. We like to be able to provide as many options as possible.
SHIPPING & SUSTAINABLITIY: Our masks are shipped in recyclable cardboard boxes, without plastic for only $9. Local orders can also be picked up directly from the studio.
"I have to be at work everyday, managing The City of Portland Emergency Coordination Center. We've normalized wearing face coverings, so I wear mine all day.
Sonia's face covering is reversible, so I can wear it all week, wash it on the weekend, and flip it around for a different look the next week.
It fits great, and I'm still able to be heard on conference calls."

"Being a mom of 5 kids 7 y.o. and under, I didn't know quite how I felt about wearing a face mask, and especially my kids wearing masks. I mean- was it really doing anything especially if my kids wore them incorrectly due to them not being comfortable.
Sonia has made it an easy decision- as soon as I saw the craftsmanship being something that would actually help protect my family, and it wasn't just another fancy handkerchief. These masks are built incredibly well and so thought out.
They are comfortable enough that my kids CHOOSE to wear them for their everyday fashion- so it makes it an easy decision as a parent to use them for my family. The elastic bands on the kid's masks are made for comfort. My girls can even tie them into their ponytail so they never slip.
The adult ones are incredibly comfortable, and don't impede your fashion, still being able to wear your hair whatever way you choose.
Now that I have these for my family- I would not choose any other mask.
"It feels like everyone is making masks to keep us safe. However, of the one's I've bought, Sonia's masks are by far my favorite!
The fit is secure, with a metal nose piece at the bridge that's customizable. Easy to put on and take off with elastic around the neck and head, not the ears. I love that these cup under the chin for a sealed fit.
Plus with fabulous reversible prints to choose from, what's not to love! I know I'll be easily washing and wearing mine for (sadly) months to come!"

"Sonia's masks are both functional and stylish.She took great care to perfect the design and I love the accessible pocket you can use to replace the filter.
I never leave home without it."
We love your masks so much!!! After seeing your YouTube mask tutorial, I was sold! I ordered masks for myself, and love the fabric, color, and especially the quality. Loved them so much I bought my mom, son, and his dad. My housemate was so impressed she bought 3.
We don't feel any air escaping from the sides, the fit is secure and comfortable, and the awesome nose bridge prevents glasses from fogging.
Thank you so much for the fabulous masks (heart emoticon)
Hi Sonia! I might be your happiest customer. I love your masks so much! They actually make me feel like there is a way out of this horrible situation we are all in and that we will all be ok. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to make such functional, comfortable and pretty masks. They give me such a sense of well-being, so thank you very much for that.
Also, I would love it if you could please make these with the ONE LAYER of interfacing, instead of two, as well. (Done) And I'm getting these with the full around the head straps since I know that I already love they way fit. I hope to try out the ear loop option as well in the near future.
Thank you again so so much! - Stephanie Lopes, Night Flight Aerial & Circus Arts
