“SOROCHE de los andes,” an Ecuadorian design studio based in Rotterdam, hand makes these unusual functional and decorative masks. Die cut with a small mechanical press, the Animal Masks (Maska) are three dimensional paper sculptures that can be decorated, mounted upon the wall or yes, worn.

The beautiful masks arrive flat packed and are created by folding, gluing and assembling with ease. They can be placed on a wall as art or decoration, but are also wearable as masks for a costume or just for fun. They come in white, and can be painted or customized any way you like.
Their attention to the packaging design is impressive. All masks are packed in a beautiful kraft paper box, screen printed in a local workshop. Soroche Labs endeavors to produce their masks in a sustainable way, ensuring every part of the design and process treats nature and people with respect.
