Dutch designer Bertjan Pot accidentally stumbled upon the concept of these rope masks when he was trying to sew a carpet out of standard rope. When the carpet started to get curvy, instead of throwing out the colourful material, he switched to making these beautiful masks that would put your raggedy Halloween mask to shame.

In order to make these masks, Pot uses different varieties and colours of ropes and sews them together using a sewing machine. The masks, he says, are new faces he meets every day. Some have happy faces, others more animalistic, some a bit creepy, and the rest a little abstract.
