Inspired by the face coverings worn by belly dancers, a traditional Japanese kimono maker has developed face veils for women working in the nightlife industry.  The veils allow wearers to more easily eat and drink due to their construction of three vertical fabric strips. The masks are available in three types of material: plain, lace, and traditional Yonezawa fabric.
