Sari Masks by Maka Maka.
From the Maker: "A Sari is a 6-9 yard gorgeous unstitched fabric that can be draped elegantly and artfully around the body and is an embodiment of grace. India offers a plethora of hand-woven Sarees but for this mask collection, I wanted to ensure comfort, breathability and safety while capturing the essence of a Sari."
For this mask collection, Maka Maka chose a hand-woven Bengal cotton “Tant” Sari, the weaving technique of which can be traced back to the Mughal era (early 16th to the mid-18th century). The Bengal cotton Sari is of a lighter weight and has subtle hand-woven motifs. To create a “Zero Waste” assortment of masks, one Sari was used to create the Limited Edition collection.
Maka Maka chose Jamdani and Sari fabrics for its PEM Shop mask collaboration to fit with the philosophy of the museum’s thoughtfully curated collection.
