Where can you buy a COVID19 unicorn mask in San Diego? Yep, right at our shop.
So we made up a bunch of cloth masks for the crew to wear in our Normal Heights shop. Being Paleo Treats, we used unicorn material. After hearing repeated requests to sell 'em, we decided to buy local, make local, and sell local.
We bought a bunch of unicorn fabric from a local quilting store on El Cajon, then took it to the tailor right down the street on Adams to sew. When you buy one of these you're supporting 3 local businesses. Thank you!
I always thought we were a dessert company, but we turn out to be more of a "take care of you no matter what" company.
No, you don't get to choose what mask you get unless you come in the shop (we do have other designs than what's shown.) All the ones we deliver have some kind of unicorn on 'em and a variation of pink or purple. 'Bout as unicorn as you can get.
What are they made of? These are cotton cloth masks with fabric elastic ear straps.
Do they meet N95 standards? Uh, no. See above re. cotton cloth masks.
Are they comfortable? They're masks, yo. Masks aren't generally comfortable. With that said, these are about as light and comfy as you'll find and still have something on your face.
If you wear it for 8 hours straight, it'll suck and you'll feel like someone is sawing off your ears with twine.
If you use them to pop into the grocery and just do your errands, you'll love them. Oh, and be prepared to hear, "OMG, I LOVE your unicorn mask!" Happens a lot.
Will they protect me against...? We're cookie people, not doctors. These meet the basic guidelines suggested by the State of California and should be used in addition to social distancing, not going out when sick, etc.
How big are the masks? Our model (our graphic designer, Virg) is a normal sized human. The masks are sewn to fit normal sized people. These will be small on Tony Robbins, large on anyone under 12, and a decent fit for anyone in between.
My Aunt Sandra can make these way cheaper, why should I buy from you? Buy from your Aunt Sandra. Shop local, shop close, keep your family & friends in biz.
How big are the child sizes? About, oh, child size.
I'm a doctor about to do a very important surgery, can I use this as a surgical mask? First, you're obviously not a good doctor if you're asking a cookie company for surgical equipment advice. I wouldn't let you operate on a rotten rutabaga. Second, go for it and tag us on Insta @paleotreats!
Stay safe, amigos!
If you're reading this in the year 2060, well, about 40 years ago there was a pandemic that freaked out everyone on earth with an internet connection and the government mandated we wear cloth masks in public to prevent the spread of the virus.
I'm sure with your fancy 2060 technology you have better methods for handling global disease outbreaks, but at the time it seemed like the right thing to do.
Enjoy the future!
