We wanted to name this small but adorable handkerchief after Jack the penguin—whom we came to know thanks to Ladislas Kadyszewski—a great photographer and a friend. Jack, the little jackass penguin became renowned after appearing in a famous cliché, distributed worldwide to raise awareness about this poor endangered species.
Tiny penguins and zebras: a creation by Bleu Tango!
The JACK handkerchief boasts a combination of two great fabrics. Its front face is made from cotton and features pink, cute-as-can-be fabric, with tiny penguins and zebras, as created by Lou, founder and designer for Bleu Tango. The hanky is lined with silky smooth black organic cotton sateen, which makes it a great accessory to deal with every day life. We are delighted to collaborate with Bleu Tango for this limited-edition mini-TSHU—it’s our way of joining forces to offer you unique prints in an eco-friendly manner. Indeed, thanks to this partnership, we can save small pieces of fabric leftover from previous collections and turn them into lovely hankies or washcloths.
Using reusable handkerchiefs goes a long way to help save our precious resources… In fact, not only do we generate less trash, we are telling the big companies out there that we don’t need disposable options. Yup—our actions are stronger than words! The other great thing about adopting a TSHU—any kind of TSHU—is that we commit to planting a tree for every hanky, washcloth or holder purchased. It’s our way to thank you—and to increase the positive impact of your gesture!
