Edmonton Made Fabric Face Masks – Canada Wide Shipping, Local Delivery & Pickup
Taking Care of People – It’s What We Do
Wearing a mask, in combination with distancing, disinfecting and good hygiene, is a way to help protect those that we come in contact with from the asymptomatic spread of illness. Fabric face masks are recommended for use in all public places where it is not possible to maintain 2m of distance between people of different households, and are required for air travel in Canada and some personal services.

You sure can! Just head over to our West Edmonton location (15342 111 Ave) and we would be happy to help you.
We are working with a number of other Edmonton companies to get as many masks made as possible. All masks are made of two layers of tight knit cotton or poly-cotton blend. Please check the description of individual masks to find the fabric type of that particular style.
The CDC states laundering with detergent alone is an effective method for cleaning. However, laundering in hot water (160F) and with chlorine bleach is the most effective method for sanitizing laundry. Hang to dry.
There are three sizes, adult large, adult extra large and child. An adult large mask will fit most adults. It’s hard to say exactly what this means, you can see sort of in the pictures, but you won’t really know how they fit you until you try it on. We have seen some people with small faces knot the elastic with a little loop to make it tighter.
On their own, NO. The World Health Organization and Alberta Health have both recommended the use of non-medical masks in spaces where you cannot maintain physical distancing of 2M between members of different households, however, other illness prevention measures must ALSO be followed. Masks provide a physical barrier as a last line of defense. Masks should be used as a part of an overall avoidance strategy that includes frequent hand washing, physical/social distancing (2m), not touching your mask or face, and disinfecting high touch areas.
Our masks come in two sizes – adult and child, and it is likely that it will not fit you perfectly. If your mask is very loose, we suggest putting a knot in the ear loop to make a snug fit.
Page the Cleaner Fabric Face Masks
In response to customer demand, shifting global recommendations about mask usage, and the global shortage of rated medical masks, Page the Cleaner has begun to manufacture and source locally made fabric face masks here in Edmonton, Alberta.
Fabric masks are NOT rated or tested to Prevent COVID-19. It is a simple physical barrier meant for short term use when properly rated medical masks are not available. If you are sick with COVID-19, or in close contact with a sick person, please seek out properly rated masks.
This mask is NOT a substitute for following government and World Health Organization guidelines on handwashing, face touching, social distancing or disinfecting.
The Alberta government recommends the use of non-medical masks for the general public when in situations where physical distancing is not possible. As of April 2020, you must wear a face mask when travelling by airplane within Canada, and some doctor’s offices and personal services require the use of masks by patients and customers.
The most important things you can do to stop the spread of COVID-19 are:
- Practice physical distancing as much as possible
- Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently and use high alcohol hand sanitizer when hand washing is not available
- Do not touch your face unless you have just washed your hands, and then you need to wash your hands again
- Disinfect high touch surfaces frequently
Best Practices When Using Any Mask:
- Clean your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer before putting on the mask
- Cover mouth and nose with mask and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask
- Avoid touching the mask when using it, if you do, wash your hands.
- Replace the mask when it gets damp and do not re-use single use masks.
- When re-moving a mask, remove it from behind
