Actually the reason I created an eye mask is that I was having sleeping problems due to several reasons; Stress, a bright and noisy environment, hot temperature in a room.
I bought ear plugs and wanted to buy a fine quality sleep mask. My eyes are very sensitive; so I needed a breathable natural fabric for the mask.
I tried a couple of masks but none of them were comfortable and didn’t give me a good sleep. They were either warm, too thin with letting the light through, not adjustable etc.
All of them were made of polyester or had external cotton/silk layers with polyester wadding inside of it that caused majority of issues.
At the end of the day I created a mask for myself. It was soft, breathable, didn`t irritate my skin, yet unique and stylish. I was soon having a good night’s sleep again.
First masks were created from fabric leftovers I had in my house, and just later on, I started to explore and play with natural dyes..
