Introducing


The Essential Mask


Comfortable, durable and reusable masks made for the long run.


The Original Stitch Mask Project


We felt the best way for Original Stitch to contribute to this global pandemic is to repurpose our skills, quality shirting fabric and supply chain capabilities to help people get well-made masks that are intended for everyday use. 

While our team is not comprised of healthcare workers, we still wanted to do our part in enabling you to keep yourself, family members and neighbors protected.




Designed for the long run.



Just like our button up shirts, all face masks 

are made with premium shirting fabric 

and Japanese craftsmanship. 


The Essential Mask offers a snug fit, with

elastic bands that wraps around your ears. 

It is comfortable, durable and reusable,

making it the ideal everyday mask.

Our ethical approach.


Our tailors and seamstresses in our converted facilities in Japan are now ready to safely hand make and ship The Original Stitch Essential Mask.
