Japanese Silk Maruobi Mask (red x gold)
*New* In stock. Patterns vary from mask to mask but we will pick one from Red x Gold colorway.
We just produced a limited quantity of one-of-a-kind masks in silk brocade Maru Obi kimono fabric. The obi is a sash for kimono, traditional Japanese dress, and the Maru Obi is the most luxurious and expensive obi of all, reserved for brides and maiko. Each obi is often worth more than the kimono itself. The beautiful silk brocade comes in pale orange, gold, cream and black colors with classic Japanese motifs such as chrysanthemums (kiku), Japanese maple (momiji), and cranes to name a few. We hope these fabrics enjoy their afterlife as face masks.
An interior pocket to insert your own filters to create an appropriate barrier necessary for Covid-19. Please note any cloth masks alone do not give enough protection. We recommend the use of a medical-grade surgical mask as a filter.
You can adjust a length by making a knot or turning elastics into ear loop as shown in photos.
Elastics around your head give comfort and leave your mask hanging around your neck when not wearing (just like a strap for sunglasses). Made based on Fashion Girls for Humanity's "ultimate" mask pattern which VPL improved with suggestions from doctors and nurses.
Made in sunny California by a women-owned ethical "essential" business factory.
Dry cleaning only. Made from 100% silk and silk blend fabric. Lined with cotton.
