Silver Piece Silk Mask
Silver pieces from Byzantium and the Sassanian Empire were the common currency of Silk Road traders. Celestial events related to cosmology and religion were represented on these ancient coins. Metal has a long history as an exchange medium, being durable, and portable. Our silk masks embody these same qualities. And, just like the ancient coins exchanged along the Silk Road, our masks are all hand minted, each bearing subtle signs of its maker. This colorway is rooted in rich tones that derive from the hues of patinaed metal.
- Dual layers that are light as air. Exterior is 100% fine silk, lined with organic, cotton voile.
- Hand dyed with non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes that do not fade, even with repeated washing.

- Each SRS mask measures 8.5” across the face and the pleated, trifold opens to a maximum length of 6;” intended to fit most faces.

ABOUT OUR MASKS
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.
