The Andrée handkerchief reminded us of the small classic black and white tiles that were so popular in the Victorian era. In the 1980s, French architect Andrée Putman gave a new look to this classic flooring, revolutionizing the Morgan Hotel’s deco in NYC. Since that time, we find a lot of black and white tiling in typical American restaurants.
The making of our Andrée handkerchief
This unique handkerchief has been handmade with love in Montreal (Canada). It is made of a light, soft and silky cotton, decorated with a beautiful hand-printed motif using the “block” technique. Please note that the fabric has small imperfections and irregularities, which testify to the work of the artisans who meticulously decorated it! The handkerchief is framed with a delicate black rolled finish.
I recommend you wash this handkerchief in cold or lukewarm water and that you dry it in open air. This way, your handkerchief will last a long time and will keep its good looks as time passes by!
One Andrée hanky in your pocket = one more tree on the planet!
Oh yes! For each handkerchief you take home with you, TSHU commits to plant a tree.
