Alexander the Great Silk Mask
  • Alexander the Great Silk Mask


    Alexander the Great, who ruled much of the known world from the Mediterranean all the way to the Indian Himalayas in the late 4th century B.C.E., wore robes of deep purple'dyed silk. The silk was probably from China, which the Greeks knew as Seres — the place where serikos or silk was made — and made optimum use of the rare and expensive purple dye that was produced by the Phoenicians of Tyre from the secretions of sea snails. 


    If you love purple you know that this sumptuous hue is at once powerful and spiritual. it's no wonder Prince pulled it through his story, songs, and wardrobe. Wear it and rule.

      Each silk mask is one of a kind. Our fabric is hand dyed by artist Laura Kozaitis who fuses traditional and modern dying techniques to achieve her signature designs. Your mask was sewn in Queens, NY by a small group of women; many of whom are mothers that have been hard hit by the recent pandemic. Collaborating with Silk Road Spaceship provided them the opportunity for independent enterprise through fair wages, as well as the safety and flexibility to work from home.
