Assamese Couple Wears Silk Face Masks On Wedding Day, People Online Call It ‘Beautiful’


The coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on marriages and social gatherings. While many weddings have been cancelled this year, some took place over video chat! While many believe that the virus is here to stay, people are coming up with modern solutions for this modern problem.

For example, a couple from Guwahati, Assam, recently got hitched and they decided on wearing gorgeous face masks matching their wedding attire. According to The Indian Express, the couple wore matching silk handloom face masks.

While the groom’s mask was more simplistic, the bride’s face mask was astonishing! It was made of Assam’s ‘Paat Silk’ with the traditional ‘Kingkhap’ motif.

The designer of the mask, Nandini Borkakati, said:

“The idea was to leave the surgical approved protective masks for the medical staff and encourage the population to wear more fabric-made masks with unique and creative designs. We interpreted that idea and created this glamorous piece with the unique use of tassels.”

Wedding videos of the couple were posted on Facebook and they soon got viral because of the beautiful masks. Have a look:
