If you’re looking for a a reusable face mask there are a number of options. You may make your own mask or purchase one from a retailer, but if you want a homemade mask without actually sewing it yourself, Etsy is the place to shop.

With endless fabric mask options on Etsy, it’s difficult to decide which one to choose. I wrote an article on what you need to know before buying or making a mask, based on current research and my previous experience (before joining the Reviewed team I spent years in apparel and textiles working on material development, technical design, and product integrity).

However, if you have too much on your plate to research masks but still want to get a great mask, I spent hours scouring Etsy to find masks worth buying—here are the top 8:

1. This quality canvas mask

This is one of the few masks on Etsy to specify the exact material they are using, which is cotton canvas. Canvas is a great material for masks as it’s one of the more effective fabrics for filtration. This mask is tripled-layered and is available in a number of delightful fabric patterns.

2. A Batik print mask with three layers

This mask is triple-layered which offers better protection, studies have shown multiple layers of fabric increase the effectiveness of filtration. However, extra layers of fabric come with a trade-off—they make it harder to breathe, which may be OK for people that prefer more protection, but not OK for those that don't like wearing a mask. The masks come in bright colours and bold prints if you’re looking for something more than a basic solid colour.

3. A face mask with a nose wire

This mask features heavyweight quilter’s cotton, which is another great fabric if you’re looking for better filtration. The mask has four layers and can be purchased with an optional wash bag.  The mask has a filter pocket, ear loops, and a padded nose wire for a better fit to your face.
