Designer Bertjan Pot created these masks out of a material experiment. He wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together he could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When Pot was about to give up on the carpet, his colleague and friend Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless and every mask tells its own little story. The masks, which started in 2010, became an ongoing project and are available for purchase.
