This cartoon is funny, but it’s message rings true.
With the Covid-19 Pandemic, face masks have become a way of life.
Many people are finding ways to let their personality show through the mask they wear.
Here’s 10 (ok 11) small businesses making the latest, necessary trend.
1. L. Howard Artistry In Leather
I’ve been a fan of his bags for years. He’s taken the same elegant craftsmanship and made these luxurious masks.

Walking into her boutique is like being in a psychedelic kaleidoscope.

Her masks are a reflection of that.

3. Affiliated Apparel
‘Tailored to the Culture’ is the mindset of designer Al Bowman.
His Upscale Urban Wear is a reflection of the world around him. So it’s only fitting that he created a mask that goes along with his esthetic.

Classy and Sassy are two ways to describe these designs.
She recently showed on the runway for Models Fighting Stroke and Epilepsy, a local non profit I work with.
She’s used the same classic styling for her masks.
