Specializing in luxury sleep masks for over 20 years, Bona Notti Company continues to fashion each and every eye mask like a lovely, handmade garment for your eyes. In our humble opinion, we believe these are not only thebest-made sleepmasks but are truly the most beautiful and comfortable eye shade available.
Product Details, Features, and Benefits
Our stylish and luxurious handmade eye masks are 100% silk. Most sleep masks are made from synthetic materials and therefore, don’t provide the same level of comfort and skin protection that silk does.
Bona Notti eye masks are specifically designed to help prevent wrinkles. Since our masks are always made from the best natural materials, the area around your eyes is cushioned when you sleep. This helps to prevent wrinkles caused by pillows and bedding materials.
Another thing that makes Bona Notti eye masks so exceptional, is that there is no heavy binding around the edges to push against your face. And, finally, the lace that we use on the back of our masks is soft and color coordinated with the design on the front of the mask. This soft elastic lace is very gentle, so you can turn and roll without really even noticing it’s there.
Over 50 elegant designs have personally been selected by the creator, Cris Notti to satisfy every discriminating taste. The interior of the masks are filled with pure cotton and, of course, Bona Notti sleep masked are hypoallergenic.
And since these eye shades are hand washable, all you have to do is hang them to dry. This way, you can enjoy wearing your eye mask again and again.
While most sleep mask companies ship their production overseas, all Bona Notti sleep masks are made in the United States. Each and every Bona Notti eye shade is hand sewn and quality checked numerous times. Quality, along with beauty-in-design continue to be the hallmarks of the Bona Notti Company.
Cris Notti is a graduate of the Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design. She was born and raised in Los Angeles but her first language was that of her parents, Italian.
At the age of 8, Cris began to make patterns and hand sew clothes for herself. When she was 11, she was given a sewing machine and started designing her own wardrobe using her allowance to hire local dressmakers to help execute her ideas.
Years later, she earned her college degree while she was running her own small fashion business, making “made to measure” professional suits for women executives in the film industry.
Her business grew into a retail store in Beverly Hills for her exclusive designs and a line of better dresses. Blending her technical and fine arts training with old world traditions – luxurious fabrics, handmade details, and superior craftsmanship – she added her modern California lifestyle of humor, fun and the unexpected to create a new line. Her designs were quickly scooped up by major TV shows, stars, celebrities and she built a loyal following.
After years in the clothing business, Cris noticed a void in the cosmetic and travel accessories market. Although fashion moves quickly and touches everything, these items lacked fashion. Everything was black and either canvas or microfiber and poorly made. Cosmetic bags were a giveaway or throw away item.
Cris set out to change all that and she has!
Her exclusive fabrics and innovative shapes are like no one else in the industry. By using materials never before associated with beauty and travel accessories, and her knowledge of construction, she has created items that are practical, fashionable and luxurious.
She has even made the generic black sleep mask typically made of black polyester with a cardboard lining into a fashion statement by using beautiful silks and cotton padding.
Her sleep masks have been copied by Paris couture designers and dozens of internet stores.
Cris has 35+ years of hands-on experience in all aspects of fashion concept to design, fabric print, construction, manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing, allowing her to understand both her retailers’ needs and the end consumers’ desires.
Cris lives in Los Angeles with her husband where she runs Bona Notti and Cris Notti Jewels, Inc.
