Hand-stitched from beautiful kimono cloth. Hiromi-san of Madame Butterfly Nagasaki makes unique face masks using silk kimono cloth with cotton layers. Each mask has a total of 4 layers for your protection. Instead of using an elastic for the ear attachments, each mask uses a thick string that can be tightened to your preference. Each string has a matching bead on the end. This way, you can loosen the mask if you would like to breath or drink, without taking the mask off completely.
Please note, because the masks are made from unique kimono cloth, each mask has a different design. If you have a preference for design, please send us an email at email@example.com to see pictures of our availability.
Available in Standard, Deluxe, and Premium. The grade of mask is determined by the amount of embroidery/design on the fabric. Standard has design on Left/Right side of mask. Some Deluxe has design on Left or Right only, with the other side as black silk. Some Deluxe has design on both Left/Right side of mask.
Instructions for cleaning are provided with each mask.
"1. Please hand wash separately in cold water with delicate detergent. We prefer to use a mild soap. 2. Gently PUSH your mask instead of rubbing it. Move it up and down so that they pass through the detergent solution. 3. Rinse with cold water for short time. 4. Squeeze it with your hands and tap with your hand to shape it. 5. Let it dry in the shade."
