*Please note, the pouches in this new batch have the "Yoshita Couture" tag sewn upside down. We know it's not a big deal, but wanted to let you know in any case.
This stunning face mask is is hand-embroidered by artisans using the Chikankari technique, a one-of-a-kind art form that requires mastery of a variety of stitching styles. The Chikankari craft originated and is concentrated in Lucknow, India, where the mask was made and where Yoshita Couture, the designer brand behind the piece, is based.
The Chikankari thread embroidery is embellished with Mukaish work, another Lucknow-based artisan technique where strips of metallic wire are skillfully twisted and inserted into fabric to accent the stitched embroidery. The resulting effect is a subtle yet striking glimmer that catches the light with each movement.
We call this color-way is Malai, which is a type of clotted cream from India. The mask comes with its own pouch to store in when not in use.
Variation is a part of the charm of hand-made products, telling the story and giving the mark of the creators who craft them. Due to the hand-made nature of the product, no two masks are exactly the same.
