THE STORY BEHIND A synonymous symbol of the counter culture movement While tie-dye has been a form of self-expression for centuries, the cultural significance surrounding the rainbow swirls and bright colors was solidified within the 1960s and 1970s, serving as an emblem of the rejection of strict social norms imposed on society within the 1950s. Rejecting violence, capitalism, materialism, and uniformity, the hippie culture preached love and compassion and sought individualism through the use of tie-dye techniques on their garments.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each item is individually hand made. The design silk face mask begins in natural white silk with the artistic design drawn by hand with a gutta resist.
WITH FRENCH SILK DYES the color is applied by hand with paint brushes creating brilliant results.
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set to permanently set the color. Once steaming is complete each scarf is individually hand washed and ironed.
THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my best effort to show proper coloring of the silk and artwork in my photos,
THE FINISHED painted silk face mask is preshrunk and completely colorfast. Each mask is hand cut which may result in slight variations in the finished size.
MASK SIZE approximately 7 " / 18 cm covering nose to under the chin custom sizes available by request , message me for details
