These youth upcycled t-shirt masks are made from TS Designs irregular t-shirts. Masks are made in Asheboro, NC at Trotters Sewing Company from two layers of our organic or conventional cotton t-shirts, all of which are made in the USA and garment-dyed (which means no shrinking). The inner layer includes a pocket into which you can insert an additional filter.
Because our youth masks are made from repurposed printed t-shirts, each mask is unique and will vary from those pictured. Also note that some masks will have prints due to being an up-cycled printed t-shirt.
To support positive progress on racial equity locally during these times of protest and unrest, TS Designs is committing a portion of all mask sales to support the Alamance Racial Equity Alliance (A.R.E.A.). A.R.E.A is a community of anti-racist people encouraging the transformation of thought through collective learning, meaningful relationships, and community events.
Alamance Racial Equity Alliance testimonial:
“I was fortunate to be able to be part of a Racial Equity Institute workshop. It was a life-changing learning experience. I find myself often sharing information that I learned from the instructors when talking with friends and colleagues. The history and legal issues are something we all need to know and understand, regardless of our race.”
-M.J. Wilkerson, Director of Alamance County Public Libraries
