Halloween Kids' Masks + Hats ~ Made in the USA
Opposite of Far masks, crowns and beards are original designs by Jessica Near and are made in Indiana with much love and the highest of standards. Jessica works hard to make sure these props for creative play are unique and made to last. Each mask is designed, cut, sewn, finished and packaged by Jessica, with the help of her right-hand woman Christina and her husband Mike. Opposite of Far is a very small operation that takes pride in carefully making high quality products for children. All the felts and fabric used are made in the USA.
Our hats are beautifully crafted in Fall River, MA, by Tuff Kookooshka. They are designed by Russian-born American artist and fashion designer Anastassia Gonye, who was inspired by her grandparents (theater artists for the Russian theater in St. Petersburg) and her mother (who worked in ateliers of the leading couture houses in Moscow, and was the Master of Embroidery for the Russian Olympic figure skating team). Tuff Kookooskha uses PolarTec fleece produced in Lawrence, MA, and is proud to support local manufacturing.
