CHIAPAS FLORAL TIES COLLECTION

These elegant masks are reminiscent of something old fashioned and traditional.  Though these are not hand-embroidered, the designs are created by individuals on manual sewing machines, making each piece unique.  The pleating on the masks offers a pocket inside, making it easy to breathe.  We are curious as to whether anyone will figure out a way to incorporate the ribbons into a fun hair-style!  These beautiful pieces were created in the Maya village of Zinacantan, Chiapas - and the finishing work was completed by Mujeres Magicas of Patzcuaro, Michoacan.
