Our masks are handmade in Los Angeles and Northern Mexico and ship from Los Angeles, the City of Angels.
While City of Angels PPE is a newly formed company, the folks behind it have been in the garment industry for over 30 years. We are the manufacturers of the highly popular clothing label Joe & Elle and our CEO is none other than Larry Hansel, the founder of the Rampage Clothing Company. When COVID-19 first hit, all clothing manufacturing in Los Angeles stopped overnight. In an effort to keep our business alive and keep our employees working, we took immediate action and started a PPE and mask company. Our mission statement reflects our commitment to donate a mask to a charity or a family in need for each one we sell. We have donated thousands of our high quality, 3-layer masks to charities and people in need and continue to do so on a weekly basis.
Our quick action allowed us to get our manufacturing partners (and neighbors) up and running as fast as possible as we knew they had payroll obligations as well. In late March we began selling retail masks through internet channels such as eBay, Amazon, Walmart, and Etsy. This has allowed all of us to thrive even while most of the country has shut down.
In the last month alone, we have seen smaller mask vendors fall off as competition has increased and some of the chain stores have attempted to enter the market. During this time, we have increased not only our wholesale mask production but have added partners for everything to make a wholesale business successful. We are committed to bringing you the best possible product at the best possible price.
All Wholesale and Bulk Orders Must be Pre-Paid via one of the following methods:
Orders will be shipped or ready for FOB in 7 days from receipt of your payment.
Minimum order is 500 pc. of any style/size/color. Orders can be split for an additional cost.
Orders larger than 500 can be mixed and matched in 500 pc. quantities.
This work has enabled us to become one of the largest wholesale mask – logo mask – and imprinted mask companies in the country. These partnerships allow us to deliver masks to you either in bulk, wholesale, or potentially white label. For more information, please fill out the form on this page and we will get back to you immediately.
We use a knit brushed poly cotton /spandex blend that is super soft to the touch yet strong enough to withstand daily wear and frequent washings.
We use a soft cotton/spandex jersey that is soft to the touch yet strong enough to withstand daily wear and frequent washings.
Our ‘third’ layer:
We use a Pellon fusible interfacing that prevents the spread of droplets while also allowing the mask to be breathable and is recommended by the CDC as a filter alternative. Our masks pass the lighter test with flying colors.
When we first started selling masks on Amazon in late March 2020, we placed an order for 100 masks from Wish and as of August 2020, not 1 mask has been received from that order! Alibaba.com has a large selection of masks available with delivery times showing 60-90 days. Reports coming from other vendors is that those time frames are not accurate. The demand in the East is so high that masks are not making it to the US. With the current unpredictability of global supply chains, you simply cannot afford to take the risk that your bulk order from China will arrive in time. Deal with a trusted US based company owned by Americans. We’ve got your back (and face) covered.
Our in-house team of designers purchases masks and talks with our clients to determine which sizes, shapes, colors, and fabrics are to be used. We use an approach of comfort, breathability, style, and consumer interest.
Our masks are designed right here in our Los Angeles offices. We use CAD (Computer Assisted Drawing) for our designs and our team is creating new designs daily. Each mask is made in several sizes and each size separate design specification.
Our buyers seek out what is available and what is the best choice to accompany our designs. We have found that the blend of 95% cotton and 5% lycra fabric is the most comfortable and has the best attributes for cloth masks.
Production requires that a separate pattern be cut for each style we produce. We use the flat pattern cutting method to ensure accuracy.
We use a simple fabric like cotton-jersey to make test product and ensure that the patterns have been cut correctly so that the masks look and fit correctly.
Next, we create actual samples of the masks using the fabrics we acquired in the Fabric Selection stage. This allows us to test the masks ourselves and make sure they are comfortable and effective. If we are making custom masks for you, this is the point at which a prototype sample or a digital mockup will be sent to you for approval. If you are purchasing masks with logos, the artwork will be added and then sent to you for approval.
At this stage we look at all the previous stages and see if anything needs to be improved.
The acquired fabric and patterns are sent to our fabric cussing team and the cuts are made specifically for each design.
All cut fabric templates go to our sewing rooms and are hand stitched, piece by piece. The is a high level of quality control at all stages but particularly in the sewing stage to ensure absolute accuracy.
Your mask has now been produced is ready for any customizations to be added before shipping.
