The Everyday Mask vs The TechKnit Mask

Which Proper Cloth mask is right for me?

We developed each of our mask designs with particular applications in mind, however the main way to choose between them is simply by deciding which one looks better to you, or goes better with your style of dressing.

In the event that you still can’t decide, we’ve compiled a list of the masks’ attributes that may help tip the scales one way or the other for you.
