Following the trend of gold masks, another goldsmith in Coimbatore has been making masks with golden and silver threads to create awareness among people.

Speaking to ANI, Radhakrishnan Sundaram Acharya said, "I’m aware that a common man cannot afford to wear these masks, but rich people can use them for royal weddings. So far, I have received nine orders, most of which are from north India."

Using 0.06 millimeters thin gold and silver threads, Acharya said it takes seven days to complete one mask.
