Non-medical mask made from one of a kind Japanese maru-obi. Obi is a sash for the traditional Japanese kimono made from a stiffer silk material which provides more structure to the mask allowing for it to stand away from the face to provide more comfortable breathing room. 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 fabrics come in pale orange, gold, cream and black colors with classic Japanese motifs such as chrysanthemums (kiku), Japanese maple leaves (momiji), and cranes to name a few.
DOING OUR PART: We are donating proceeds from all mask sales to the non-profit, Fashion Girls For Humanity, for their Gowns for Good Made in America initiative. They are currently raising funds to produce PPE gowns through small garment and fashion industry factories in the US. The gowns produced are then in turn being donated to Frontline workers in need of PPE.
Made in sunny California, by a women-owned, ethical, certified essential business factory.
