Most of my pieces are composed of natural feathers which have been washed, treated and dyed by professional and renowned companies in order to respect the essential hygiene requirements, national and international.
I DO NOT assume any legal liability or responsibility for an allergic skin reactions or illness suffered as a result of wearing or be around any of my products.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE DISCLAIMER
As already mentioned, most of the pieces I create and handcraft are made of high quality paper mache or other natural base decorated with feathers which are all sensitive to various elements.
In the case of a mask to wear, I would recommend doing so as much as possible away from direct humidity sources like prolonged exposure to deep fog atmosphere or, for example, rain when worn outside.
Prolonged exposure to these elements could affect the shape, the appearance and the colour of the mask and might cause irreversible damage to the mask base and/or feathers.
If the mask is worn inside, I would recommend paying particular attention and stay away from fire (such as candlelight flames).
My masks to wear or interior decoration masks are NOT treated with flame retardant spray.
When choosing to display your mask to wear or your interior decoration mask, I would again recommend doing so away from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight* and, again, certainly away from humidity source* and candlelight flames.
*Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight deeply affects the colour of the materials and the humidity deeply affects the shape of it.
A glass, acrylic dome or case is an ideal solution to display and preserve your piece away from dust, humidity and eventual candlelight flames.
When necessary, the dusting operation must be done VERY DELICATELY with a soft fan-shaped makeup or artist brush (but not on pieces with ostrich feathers) on the mask front and flat feathers or simply with a light blow (more appropriate on pieces with ostrich feathers).
The use of any vacuum cleaner, dusting cloth or fluffy duster would damage the shape and/or the materials permanently.
I DO NOT assume any responsibility for any damages to my products due to the buyer’s negligence.
I DO NOT assume any legal liability or responsibility for any negligence of the buyer exposing the piece to or being in contact with elements that could cause self-harm or harm to other persons.
I reserve the right to alter these Terms and Conditions at any time.
