Support Local, Buy an Idaho Made Mask

As face masks continue to be a part of our daily lives, it’s time we start investing in multiple to maintain recycling them throughout each week. Lucky for you, we know of quite a few local mask makers who are working to supply masks for the Treasure Valley and beyond! Now is our time to support local while keeping the community safe.

An Esty retailer based out of Boise, Gabrielle Weeks, of CharmedByGabrielle began creating custom, reusable face masks. With a variety of prints, styles, and packs, these 100% cotton washable masks have been a big hit not only among Boise residents but throughout the entire U.S.
