It's perfect for my grandson, and I love the true colors that are in the photo and in person. Great communication and friendly too!

Today a friend remarked that she liked a different mask from this shipment, so I added a photo. These masks are sturdy, with better fabric than used in the mass market ones I've bought as stopgaps, but breathable enough to layer over a surgical style disposable mask. If filters were easier to find, I would use the filter pocket in the mask. Carol is wonderful to work with, happy to answer questions or address concerns before an order is placed. Do visit her shop; masks are just the latest addition.

These are great custom-made masks. I like that they are cotton. They were delivered quickly and the store owner was very responsive to questions.

I absolutely LOVE this mask! It is very well made and also very cute. And it fits me perfectly! This is going to be my number one mask through the pandemic. A big thank you to Carol for making it and shipping it to me so promptly.

This artisan uses beautiful fabrics and crafts very nicely sewed masks. The problem, for me at least, is that she used elastic hair ties for the ear loops. The loops were too small and the elastic was too stiff. The maker responded quickly though, offering to send me larger loops. I had made my own easier repair already and declined the new loops. I was pleasantly surprised when she refunded the purchase price! I would recommend communicating with the maker about the ear loops prior to buying these beautiful masks. I wear mine a lot now and get compliments on it.

This mask was perfect. It is comfortable, has full coverage, and is cute! I also really like the loops that go around the ears so that it stays on my face without issue. I just ordered two more!

How it all began...
I started by studying fibers in college. I was taught many different techniques for how to dye fabric and how to silk screen. After college I turned the third floor of my parents' home into a studio. For fifteen years I owned and operated The Carol Nesper Studio in an old school house in Little Italy in Cleveland, Ohio. I have since moved operations to my home. I split my time between teaching elementary school visual arts and making clothes.

I hand dye the fabric and then make the clothes.

I started making clothing after I graduted from college in 1985. I was looking for a way to show off the hand-dying skills I had learned. I use a combination of shibori and tie-dye techniques. I dye large quantities of silk and then use smaller pieces of this to decorate garments. The cotton knit garments I use are all hand dyed by me before they are decorated.
Let me know if you have any further questions about my process.
