- Mask to personalise with tribal design – €9.90on 1 October 2023 at 13 h 03 min
In Europe, just a few months ago, wearing masks in Japan seemed very exotic. At the beginning of the pandemic in Europe, when masks were scarce and were available at prohibitive prices, many of the citizens, generally the most agile with their hands, made protective masks in a very artisanal way. They were often made with whatever they could get their hands on, without really being sure they had the right technique, nor the right fabric, and the motifs of the masks were of little importance. Sometimes fanciful or even plain without a soul. Today, the price of masks has fallen sharply. With the mask we offer you at a democratic price you will have an authentic protective mask and a design that brings out your personality, your identity, thanks to a graphic like a tribal tattoo. Behind its abstract designs and complex lines the tribal motifs were created thousands of years ago. They evoke the elements of nature (earth, fire, water, air, ocean, sun), animals (turtles, lizards, shark teeth), each with its own symbolism. Power, eternity, purity, immunity, fertility, the values carried by these tattoos are numerous. Ancestral and religious practice at the beginning to become today a fashion phenomenon through the subjects of the tattoos. Ideal gift to emphasize or bring out the ornaments, the motives which enthuse you..

Throughout history, masks made of pig bladders with crow heads have been seen during major pandemics. Today you can personalise the mask you buy with the muzzle of a pet or why not a tiger. During periods of plague, masks with the shape of a bird’s beak were made for doctors with medicinal plants that were supposed to kill the various infections attributed to the epidemics. The models of the masks have never ceased to be revisited in an attempt to improve them. Archive photos show that the miners wore masks to protect them from all the flying and suspended dust during their activities at the bottom of the mine. Around 1850, medical masks appeared. Charles Urbain Bricogne, a French engineer, developed a mask to protect against dust, dust which was dangerous to the health of railway employees. At the dawn of the 20th century, the occupants of the tanks were obliged to put on a mask to protect themselves from the paint and iron debris coming from the walls due to the consequences of shell and bullet impacts. Today, multiple means of protection are used: visor or face screen. These are systems already in use in various sectors of activity whose common aim is to protect against all types of projections. Visor used in metallurgy, welding, etc. Masks to be personalised with the muzzle of an animal, dog, cat, tiger, an indispensable gift for those who care about the health of their loved ones.

- Dino mini light green – €9.90on 1 October 2023 at 13 h 03 min
Dinosaurs are creatures that have always fascinated young and old alike, as they were giant, impressive and imposing animals. There were many varieties of dinosaurs, some flying, others roaming the earth; some were bipedal, others four-legged. Some were carnivorous and others were herbivorous. They had either crests, horns and many other appearances. These dinos dominated and reigned supreme millions of years ago. Their reign, undivided over the whole earth, lasted several tens of millions of years and ended in an apocalyptic catastrophe that still frightens us today: the fall of an asteroid that caused their disappearance. There are many films retracing the frightening adventures or not of these dinosaurs, such as Jurassic Park. In the clan of the nice dinosaurs, there are for example: “Little Foot” in “The Dinosaur and the Valley of Wonders”, “Rex” in “Toy Story” and “Denver” in “Denver the Last Dinosaur”. These films of gentle dinosaurs have generated the attraction of younger people to dinosaurs in various forms.

It will delight the little ones as well as for children as a birthday present, as a Christmas present and for parents an asset for children who are afraid in the dark.
