Dutch designer Bertjan Pot’s masks are the product of a failed material experiment. They are made from a creative happenstance when some rugs made from stitching ropes together “got curvy.”

“I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day.” Bertjan Pot
