Where to Buy Adults and Children’s Fabric Face Mask in Singapore?

The law now requires everyone above 2 years old to wear face masks when stepping out of the house. A surgical mask offers better protection, but with dwindling supply worldwide, it’s best to save them for people in medical facilities and front-lines. Or when you are going to high risks areas such hospitals and clinics.

Hence, reusable fabric mask is recommended for the general population to wear on a daily basis. Moreover, it’s more eco-friendly!

With Phase 2 here, you and your family will be going out more often. And it’s highly recommended to wash your fabric masks after each use for hygiene purposes and effective protection. So if you don’t want to wash that often, you’ll need more masks to rotate and wear out. Stock up! πŸ™‚

Reusable masks is big business now and many shops are selling them. With many cute prints to choose from, get one that will encourage your child to put masks on. I’ve compiled a list of shops to buy stylish masks for children and adults. Comment below and let me know of any shop I have missed out.

1929 Mask


Masks from 1929 Mask are treated with anti-microbial and water-repellent agents that last for 100 washes. They have been tested by various international test centres for water repellency, bacteria filtration efficiency and chemical safety. Moreover, the fabric is made with technology that eliminates bacteria, fungus and unpleasant odours.

If you worry about the masks being too small, you can always get their mask extenders for comfort.

Designed in Singapore, Made in Malaysia.

Price: S$25 (children and adults)

Ans.ein


Ans.ein is known for Peranakan-inspired batik prints on clothing for children and mothers. Now, they have a collection of masks with these beautiful prints. Their 3-ply reusable mask comprises of:

  • Inside: Cotton twill (breathable and absorbs moisture)
  • Middle: Waterproof fabric (tested to block water droplets, and used for makeshift medical protective gears)
  • Outside: Cotton/Polyester (blocks small particles)

I got their masks for the children and adults. Beautiful colours, quick to dry, but colour runs during wash.

Founded in Singapore by two mumpreneurs.

Prices:

  • Solid colours: S$5 (Children), S$7 (Adults)
  • Prints: S$10 (Children), S$12 (Adults)

Binary Style


Binary Style is a local boutique that offers scarves, apparels and masks. The prints on these products tell the Singapore story — of local history, culture, urban life, and nature. Get these original prints with a local flavour and Binary Style will donate 20 per cent of the mask sales towards various charities.

Prices: S$15 (children and adults)

Website: binarystyle.co/collections/100-cotton-mask


CYC Made to Measure (Tailor)


CYC Made To Measure is Singapore’s heritage tailor that made shirts for the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. Thus it comes as no surprise that the fabric masks are made of premium quality cotton fabric from renowned shirting mills. Moreover, each mask comes with an inner pocket to hold filter insert and a water-repellent, washable N95 hydrophobic filter.

Personally, I love their filters because they are made from non woven fabrics comparable to the ones used for N95 surgical masks. Also, according to tests from Singapore A*star lab, the filters have 95.5% – 99.8% BFE reading after 15 washes. This means they retain their efficacy fairly well even after repeated washes.

I bought CYC’s Mask Filter Insert Refill Pack pack. I asked and CYC said it is okay to cut the filters in half to fit children’s mask size. One can fold to fit, but so wasted. πŸ˜›

Masks are made in Singapore. Support local!

Prices:

  • S$16- S$20 (children and adults) (Further 20% discount when you buy more than eight masks from the Technicolour series, regardless of sizes).
  • S$6.25 for 25 pieces of filter.

Elizabeth Little is for floral prints lovers. Its signature collection uses organic cotton, fine Japanese linen, and heritage Liberty prints. Now these Liberty fabrics are also used to produce face masks for kids and adults. You get to match your little girl’s mask with her dress too.

Elizabeth Little believes in slow fashion and sustainability instead of mass production. Hence, all their products employ handcrafted techniques that value quality over quantity.

Prices:

  • S$18 for 2-ply mask with filter compartment (children and adults)
  • S$22 for 3-ply mask (children and adults)

Independent Market


Independent Market sells fabric masks in packs of two, four and ten. Made with fabric that is of hypoallergenic cotton, the mask is made good for children and sensitive skin. The breathable fabric makes it more comfortable to wear in our humid climate too.

  • Inside/Middle: Cotton gauze pocket for inserting a disposable filter (filter not included). There’s a new version where the inner layer has antimicrobial treatment.
  • Outside: 100% Cotton double-lined 2 ply

Their children’s masks have three different sizes, from XS (2-4 years old) to M (pre-teen). The rubber straps are adjustable with tying of knots.

I got their masks for the children and adults. πŸ™‚ The size for the adults are on the small side, whereas the ones for children fits my 3 year old daughter well. However, it’s a bit difficult to adjust and tie the rubber straps to the perfect length to fit her ears nicely.

Masks are made in Singapore. Support local!

Prices:

  • Generally, it’s S$32 for a set of 4.
  • S$7 – S$10 (Children); S$8 – S$15 (Adults)
