The story behind Nof, our lovely black handkerchief.
Our very dear, seriously pragmatic and real-life friend Nof used to think of cloth hankies as a funny concept (and perhaps a little gross, too). Until he one day found his poor, irritated nose longing for the soft touch of cotton. Let’s just say we soon converted Nof—as TSHU’s first ever customer! So, you see, we had to create the Nof, an all-black handkerchief in honour of our no-frills, no-nonsense friend. Cheers to your nose, Nof!
You & your black hanky: a sleek and sturdy friendship that’ll withstand the test of time.
That’s right—Nof means business. This black handkerchief is built from sturdy single ply organic cotton sateen, ethically handmade with tons of love. But don’t be fooled by appearances! Nof is a handsomely serious hanky with a secret soft side.
Machine washable, TSHU handkerchiefs will last cycle after cycle, winter after winter. This all-black, thick and absorbent handkerchief is no different and even becomes even softer with time!
A discreet friend to follow you around on the daily, Nof is the embodiment of style and practicality! Gender-neutral just like all our hankies, he’ll help you make a strong fashion statement against even the strongest of sneezes.
Because black is the new black.
Whether you stylishly wear him or unstylishly stuff him down your pocket, Nof will always be ready to jump into action at the first sign ‘achoo!’. Ladies and gents—and everyone in between—as long as you love your noses like we love our martinis, this handkerchief is perfect for you.
But what if you want to jazz it up?
We absolutely get it! Some days are just too festive for black. Go bold, go nuts and discover our colourful handkerchiefs or cool handkerchiefs with crazy patterns. They’ll get along well with Nof, we promise!
TSHU: seriously committed.
All our TSHUs are lovingly and ethically handmade by our team of expert seamstresses from our bicoastal homes in Canada and France. But our team is more than just a team—we’re a family. That’s why we’re committed to providing good working conditions for everyone involved in TSHU, even if it means higher costs. No corners cut here (unless they’re fabric).
On the topic of fabric—stylish and committed handkerchiefs like ours are entirely made of washable organic cotton. Because applying little actions here and there to help lower our ecological footprint isn’t just a passing trend. So blow, wipe and sniffle to your heart’s content minus the paper. But wait, there’s more! TSHU doesn’t just save trees—we also plant new ones, for every new hanky you adopt. Who knew that snot would one day be the glue that holds our planet together?
