A Guide to handkerchiefs
A handkerchief is typically a hemmed square of thin fabric that can be carried in the pocket or purse, and which is intended for personal hygiene purposes such as wiping one's hands or face, or blowing one's nose. A handkerchief is also sometimes used as a purely decorative accessory in a suit pocket.
King Richard II of England, is widely believed to have invented the cloth handkerchief, as surviving documents written by his courtiers describe his use of square pieces of cloth to wipe his nose.
Handkerchiefs can be made of cotton, cotton-synthetic blend, synthetic fabric, silk, or linen. This is probably the main differentiator when you choose a handkerchief. For everyday use the cotton handkerchief is perfectly adequate. Linen handkerchiefs make fine gifts especially when they are packaged in a box.
The other point you should consider, apart from fabric, is the design of the handkerchief. We stock plain handkerchief’s loose (which tend to be the bestselling) to colourful polka dot handkerchiefs which add a bit of dash to any outfit.
So there you are really, choose your fabric then choose your design and you should be matched with your perfect handkerchief.
