Note this is YARDAGE. Pre-cut filters for our masks are available here.
By our calculation, 1 yard can make approximately 60+ mask filters depending on size and shape. See our filter pattern here.
Purchase yardage of non-woven meltblown polypropylene filter material by the yard, 3 yards, or 6 yards. Contact us for larger quantities, we're happy to accommodate your orders! Use this material to make disposable filters for your own fabric face masks.

This Meltblown Polypropylene material is an excellent fabric for mask inserts. My research indicates that Meltblown produced Polypropylene is the critical filtration barrier in medical grade N95 masks. It also is a more efficient barrier than Spunbound produced Polypropylene against microscopic viruses like Covid (I am not a scientist or engineer just a layperson who has done a fair amount of research online about mask insert options. It appears to me that the Meltblown option is a very good choice for fabric masks). Thank you to Volante for making this product/material available during a time when Polypropylene is in short supply due to worldwide demand. Product came promptly, was packaged professionally and thank you to Volante customer service for your quick, very thorough reply's to my questions. Also thanks for the short video on how best to place the insert material into a mask’s pocket. Good health to all!
The filter material came in two totally sealed clear plastic bags. I can see there was a dark colored debris on the edges of the filter material in both packages. The debris was up to approximately 1/4" wide. Since I had planned to use this material for mask filters, this made me question the quality control of the material as I do not want to be breathing this in. I took pictures of the unopened packages.
Hi Tim, Thanks for letting us know about this. The selvage edges of the fabric have a tendency to get pieces of cardboard fiber embedded along the edges as the fabric comes off the roll from the manufacturer, partially due to the static charge of the fabric. I completely understand your concerns though! Would you like us to send you new filter material or issue you a refund?
We purchased this material to insert into our cloth masks; so far, it seems to work well for its intended purpose. Ordering was easy -- we were not forced to create an account (at this point, unless I already have an account with the particular outlet, I will simply empty the cart and find another website if I cannot shop as a guest), and shipping was prompt. That's all that really needs to be said.
With everyone making masks, this was the only source I could find for filter fabric - that didn’t make me fear providing my personal info. Order was filled in the time indicated when I ordered and filter fabric is just what I needed. Thanks Volante Design!
Fit great, look good. The adjustable straps keep the mask in place nicely. Good to wear all day. Thank you for making a stylish functional mask! Love pretending to be a ninja!
