This adorable mini-TSHU is named after British aviator Douglas Bader. After losing both his legs before WWII, Douglas went on to become a pilot for the RAF, despite his injury. Not only did he become a fantastic pilot, but he became renowned for winning over 30 victories in just over a year!
Bleu Tango x TSHU
Our mini-Douglas (adorable reusable washcloth if there ever was one) is made from recycled pieces of fabric—just like his dad. Indeed, talented Paris designer Bleu Tango has agreed to hand us limited quantities of lovely fabric featuring unique designs—pieces too small to make garments out of. It’s hence a collaboration that’s good for the planet! You can only imagine how happy we are to give a second life to these gorgeous pieces. Unlike his dad though—mini-Douglas is backed with some organic certified bamboo terry—which is fantastic for your little ones. This adorable washcloth-hanky can thus be used as a handkerchief—or as a washcloth in sticky situations—rinsed and used to scrub dirty cheeks and hands.
The Making of Mini-Douglas
Like all our stylish, eco-friendly handkerchiefs, the mini-Douglas washcloth has been handmade with care in ethical conditions. It’s not hard for us to make sure if this—since we are a small shop, we are in close contact with our seamstresses and we like to visit them regularly and chat with them. Like everything else here at TSHU, nothing happens without a smile… Not even the magic in the workshop!
You LOVE the mini-Douglas but are uncomfortable sporting a washcloth to work? No problem—Douglas Senior is just as pretty, but backed with crisp, white organic cotton sateen. Purchase both together as the perfect Pop and Son gift—or pick your favourite!
If you’re browsing through our website—you know this already—using a cotton handkerchief instead of paper tissues will definitely reduce your waste. Same for reusable and disposable washcloths! So obviously, it makes for an awesome gift—useful, ethical, lovely and eco-friendly… What more could one ask for? Now here’s something that may blow your mind: on TOP of all these great reasons to adopt a TSHU, we commit to planting one tree for each hanky sold. So if you adopt ZE Tshu, you’ll not only save some trees, you’ll also be planting one! Mind blowing, huh?
