Dying to learn how this gorgeous peacock handkerchief got his cute little name? Read on, we’ll give you the scoop. We’ll also tell you all about Leons’s pedigree: how it’s made, where and why it’s so wonderful. Stay tuned!
When we arrived in Provence six years ago, we settled down in a beautiful home located in the countryside, between two vineyards. We had the most breathtaking sunrise and sundown, being nested on a hill, with vines as far as we could see. At nighttime, when the sun went down, we would sit quietly on the stone terrace with a glass of cold white wine which we sipped on as the children zoomed by on their bicycles or jumped in the pool. And, from far away, we heard strange screams coming from the hills: Léoooon, Léooooooon, Léééooooon! At first, we wondered what this unusual sound was! But later, we learned that our neighbours at Château Revelette had a family of peacocks and that funny scream was theirs! So you see, it was quite obvious when I found this beautiful fabric with peacocks, that I would name it Léon.
Made to last
Colourful and original, this beautiful handkerchief is made with care and attention in Montreal (Canada). And when it comes down to durability, Leon’s pretty hard to beat. Made with two plies of the finest cotton (tightly woven organic cotton poplin, lined with silky smooth white organic cotton sateen), this cool handkerchief is resistant to every use—and every wash. Oh yes, Leon promises to stay true to you through thick and thin.
A size for every need (and nose)
Leon is available in four 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)
- EXTRA LARGE (40 x 40 cm)
Behind the scenes…
Of course, this funky 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, Leon 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 Leon dries nicely between uses.
