Where are Fishmasks® products made?

All Fishmasks® products are manufactured in Denver, Colorado. We cut/sew/decorate the raw textile fabric in-house ourselves. All items start off as a blank roll of fabric, and we perform every stage of the process, including the final packaging and shipping. Made in the USA and proud of it!

How do I catch the more fish than my buddy?

To be honest we aren’t entirely sure how to catch more fish than our buddy, but as soon as you find out please let us know!

Why is In-House production better than outsourcing?

The benefit to owning a production facility is that it allows us to closely monitor the manufacturing process and ensure an extremely high-level of quality control.

Where are your material suppliers located?

Overall we make an effort to source material as close to our facility as possible, reducing the distance it has to travel to us and creating a more sustainable supply chain. Our Polyester fabric blends are milled in North Carolina and our product packaging is made down the street from our space in Denver.

What is done with waste from the product process?

All scrap fabric from the cutting stage is recycled through a re-polymerization process that turns it back into fabric, on average we recycle 65 pounds of fabric scrap a week! Kraft paper, sublimation paper, etc… is reused wherever possible, as packaging/stuffing in shipping boxes, or straight up recycled. Roughly 400 pounds of paper/cardboard/etc… is recycled weekly here, and we have a 70+ % diversion rate.

What is a performance fabric?

Fabrics made for a variety of end-use applications, which provide functional qualities, such as moisture management, UV protection, odor control, thermo-regulation, and wind/water resistance.

How big was that fish you caught?

THIS BIG! <------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------>

What does UPF stand for?

UPF, or Ultraviolet Protection Factor is a rating system to gauge how much protection from the sun a garment provides. The majority of our products are UPF 50+, blocking more than 99% of harmful UV rays. The one exception is the Bandanas (UPF 30+ / Very Good).

Will the graphics wear off?

Absolutely Not! We decorate our products through a process called Dye-Sublimation which uses a combination of water-based ink, heat, and pressure. Unlike a screen print, the graphic will not crack, wash-out, or have any noticeable fading for many many days on the water.

How do I wash my Fishmasks® product?

We recommend hand washing with room temperature water, hang drying, and some light ironing if needed to remove wrinkles. We advise against bleaching or machine washing.
