Dying to learn how this gorgeous terrazzo handkerchief got his cute little name? Read on, we’ll give you the scoop. We’ll also tell you all about Ettore’s pedigree: how it’s made, where and why it’s so wonderful. Stay tuned!

Ettore’s Story

Ettore Sottsass initiated the Memphis Movement in the eighties – a group of designers who were renowned to give a new life to terrazzo/granito, which this print subtly refers to with it’s unequal and colourful spots!

Made to last

Silky soft, this elegant handkerchief is made with care and attention in Montreal (Canada). And when it comes down to durability, Ettore’s pretty hard to beat. Made with two plies of fabric (airy high-quality Viscose with CE certified inks, lined with silky white organic cotton sateen), this fabulous handkerchief is resistant to every use—and every wash. Oh yes, Ettore promises to stay true to you through thick and thin.

A size for every need (and nose)

Leon is available in three sizes so you can adopt the one that best fits your needs (and your nose). Choose from:

  • SMALL (20 x 20 cm)
  • STANDARD (28 x 28 cm)
  • LARGE (34 x 34 cm)

Behind the scenes…

Of course, this smart-looking handkerchief is cute enough to flaunt—but really, it’s meant to serve. Keep him close and reach out to him in times of need. With his two plies of fabric, Ettore is ultra-reliable and will absorb everything you throw at him. Once your nose is relieved, simply fold him neatly, put away and reuse. You’ll be happy to know that Ettore dries rather quickly between uses.

The TSHU promise

We know you care and hey—we do too. That’s why we’re proud to offer sustainable, quality cotton handkerchief so you can help save some trees. And because we like to go the extra mile, we also commit to planting a tree every time someone falls in love with our lovely handkerchief and decides to take him home.
