At the beginning of the Covid-19 shutdown, I made batches of masks for local doctors and families until the shortage ended. I never shared the photos because they were a painful reminder of losing my jobs and life in NYC, and most of all the terrible isolation it forced upon all of us.
But the Communion masks are different. My customers needed them to make their First Holy Communion - a singularly transcendent event. So I resolved to help them overcome this shadow with an effusion of unexpected beauty. No longer would face masks distract. Here their beauty points towards the higher reality that even in isolation we are not alone.
The First Holy Communion face masks are made with a diamond white silk wool. (Diamond white is shade between bright white and ivory.) The silk wool's shine and structure make it a beautiful option. The outerlayer is made with very light ivory laces from France.
Thank you for your support and allowing Anagrassia to be a part of your daughter's special day. I hope your girl has a wonderful and blessed First Holy Communion, despite these unprecedented times.
Silk Lace Face Mask:
Silk/Wool Outer Layer with Chantilly Lace (from France) Overlay
Lined with cotton
(The mask will be made with soft poly/rayon knit ties, unless you request elastic. These are the softest option around the child's ear.)
Please send me a message immediately after purchase if you prefer 1/8" elastic.
