Our Story – Australian Face Masks

Our Story

Hi! We are Australian Face Masks 😊

We not only make the most comfortable face masks in Australia but are on a mission to bring garment manufacturing back to Australia.

Finding A High-Quality Face Mask:

Finding a well-fitting, high-quality mask is frustrating.

Back in March this year, we looked everywhere to find comfortable face masks.

The problem? Most were low quality (single thin layer) or simply not designed for larger Australian features.

So our team got to work designing a mask that would be comfortable to wear, with sizes large enough to suit burly Australian men, and most importantly; made in Australia.

Creating Australian Jobs:

Each AFM mask is handmade with the utmost precision and care by our Australian team.

Unfortunately, garment manufacturing in Australia has largely moved offshore.

But we believe it’s time to bring garment manufacturing back to Australia.

That’s why we’re creating training programs to help upskill our local workforce and provide local jobs.

So far, we’ve been able to employ 70+ Aussies who would otherwise be unemployed.

This has only been possible, thanks to you. The Australian community supporting Australian made products.

How We Got Here:

Australian Face Masks was born in March 2020 out of a desire for high-quality face masks.

Our Founder, James, grew up in the textile industry. His parents have operated a Blinds and Curtains manufacturing business, Jaleigh Blinds & Curtains since 1997.

Initially, the idea was to help keep staff employed as the Coronavirus devastated the industry.

But as demand for face masks grew, so did our team.

And now, we’re the largest manufacturer of reusable face masks in the entire country.

We’re looking to showcase what the Australian manufacturing industry can accomplish and bring more jobs back home. Starting with the most comfortable face masks on the market.
