2020. A year like no other. A global pandemic caused a shift in our way of life — washing hands, avoiding crowds, sanitizing everything, and yes, wearing face masks.

Custom Silk Face Masks: The Style-Conscious Way to Stay Safe!
At ZB Couture, we believe that wearing a face mask doesn’t mean you have to leave style behind. We’re proud to announce the launch of our limited-edition line of face masks.
Just like our couture clothing, our silk face mask collection is consistent with our core company pillars:
- Instead of buying new fabric we repurpose the fabric from our dresses and gowns to create our stunning line of hand painted silk face masks.
- Every face mask is crafted from 100% natural, breathable fibers, and then beautifully hand painted with exquisite floral details. Our face masks have soft, adjustable ear loops to keep you comfortable and ensure a safe, snug fit.
- Our face masks are ethically and proudly made in a small suburban town in New Jersey.
- Every face mask style is washable, reusable, and feels like heaven against your skin.
With the holiday season in mind, these exclusive edition custom silk face masks are party ready. They pair perfectly with your dressy clothes and festive jewelry.
This exclusive limited-edition collection includes a beautiful rose-floral design in two colors, and a plain ivory option to choose from. Every face mask arrives in an exquisitely wrapped gift box. They are a great treat for yourself or to send as a gift to a loved one. Our masks are perfectly priced, and shipping is free! It’s one purchase you won’t regret!
