Jean’s Story

Our Jean handkerchief is named after Jean Wiener – a marine biologist and activist whose work awarded him the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015. Thanks to Jean, the marine wildlife in Haïti is now in good hands!

Why JEAN is THE one

JEAN just manages to make you feel like going green isn’t a compromise—it’s a choice. A really good one.

How he feels

JEAN feels like the thick, fancy table linens you find in 5-star hotels, but smoother.

How JEAN serves

Soon, you’ll be wondering how you ever left the house without him. When I leave the house without my hanky, I actually feel naked!

And now, every time something happens, like

  • 🤧 Your nose runs
  • 😭 You get emotional
  • 💦 You spill something
  • 🥐 You need to set down your croissant
  • 🙊 Your child is leaking

Or anything else life throws at you…

You’ll be ready. SO ready.

The details you’re dying to know

  • Fabric: 100% bright blue cotton, lined with white organic cotton sateen
  • Plies of fabric: two
  • Thickness: thick
  • Absorbency: high
  • Dimensions : 28 x 28 cm

You are amazing!

First, congrats on using reusable handkerchiefs. 👏🏻 I know it’s not a big commitment really, because they’re so awesome they actually make blowing your nose a fun experience—but hey, you are doing a good deed for our planet and that’s something to be proud of. So kudos on making your daily life that much greener.

While we’re on the subject of waste reduction, you might enjoy learning that to boost your good deed, we also commit to planting a tree every time you take a hanky home with you. Isn’t that fabulous? 😍

Caring for JEAN

I’ve taken the time to write down detailed instructions so you can learn how to care for your handkerchiefs in order for them to last a long time, but in a jiffy:

👉🏻 wash your handkerchief with cold to lukewarm water (snot melts at approximately 30 degrees, which is the temperature I would recommend

👉🏻 dry in open air (it will last longer that way)

In any case, know that this handkerchief is made to last. I know you’re like me and you hate cheap stuff—so I promise, this one should be around for a while.
