Maskit is a luxury fashion house with a unique origin. Conceived in 1954 by Ruth Dayan, Maskit made contemporary luxury clothing utilizing traditional embroidery techniques from Hungarian, Yemenite, Bulgarian, Bedouin, Palestinian, Druze, Lebanese and Jewish artisans. The resulting works of art created more than jobs for immigrants; a brand was born. Maskit wasn’t just any brand, though: its designs were so luxurious and coveted that they were treasured by leading ladies (Audrey Hepburn was just one star who wore its famous Desert Coat) and their fashion-forward followers alike. Collaborations with Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and Givenchy followed, as did a flagship store in New York City.
