North Carolina now requires face coverings when in public, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
If you’re looking for face masks, and for a way to help support local businesses, here are some Charlotte-centric masks from Charlotte designers, Charlotte shops and Charlotte sports teams.
Masks are a way of protecting the people around you, in case you’re infected and don’t know it. Now you can show that you care not just for the people you come in contact with, but for the City of Charlotte.
Do you know of other Charlotte businesses or makers that are selling masks? Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite! Maybe we’ll add it to the list, time permitting.
We have no affiliation with any of these mask sellers, and we don’t get a commission if you buy one. We are just sharing masks that we think you might find interesting. However, you may see ads for other masks, interspersed between the ones we’re listing.
