Like all our masks, the Spellbound comes direct from the makers in Italy.
Venice’s mask makers (or Mascherari) are a symbol of the city’s history and culture. They perfect their work in tiny workshops, hidden in the narrow alleyways alongside the canals characteristic of this northern Italian city.
When Carnival season comes, every year for the two weeks until Shrove Tuesday, Venice comes alive with the extravagance of the masquerade costume. Carnival goers travel from all corners of the globe to see, and be seen at, the world famous Carnevale di Venezia. And where did it all begin?
The first masks were worn in the 12th century to conceal identity and to allow the wearer to become temporarily free from Venetian society’s restrictions. The mask (and its accompanying costume) would allow its wearer to move incognito around the city’s narrow passageways and canals.
Today, you can bring some of the grandeur of Venice’s masquerade balls to your own masked party or themed event, wearing the Spellbound filigree mask, or another genuine Venetian mask from our collection.
Satin ties make the mask a perfect fit to the contours of your face.
