Masks: Les Petits

Patience, please - this page is under construction.

Variations innumerable upon three basic designs - the Domino, the Columbina, and the Rosetta. These are small, thematic eyemasks, each with quirk and personality but still formal enough for nearly any event. Whether as a way to spice up a dull suit or cocktail dress, evade worries over being inappropriately costumed, or merely because you'd rather forego the wings and scales of our larger designs (it must happen sometimes) - we have what you need. All lined in a natural suede and bound with ribbon ties.

These masks are small - relatively budget-sized - the masquer is enthusiastically encouraged to browse among designs depicted here, but unabashedly begged to suggest their own theme. The choosing of a mask may be personal, but to participate in the design of your mask makes the item so much more valuable and memorable. Imagine, in a world of mass-produced plastic trash, owning a one-of-a-kind heirloom, invested with your own personality, a memento of an event to you and of you to your kin, an item of art or whimsy or whatever you should choose. Such things are too rare these days, and we would love that our masks be numbered among them. Suggest your own custom theme.

To picture every available permutation of these designs would be a truly impossible task, and would sadly exclude your own ideas. Please do not hesitate to send a note if you have an idea and would like a quote or to discuss a design.
