Enzo – A Yellow Hanky Life Story
How did we come up with Enzo? Settle down, ladies and gents – ’cause this story is a sad one. Are you all set, with a handkerchief in hand? You got it – hankies also serve to dry tears. Back to Enzo’s story. A few years back, we got a moving message from Josée, who had just lost her beloved Italian greyhound – Preciosa Enzo de la Roche Hue. Full of sorrow, she dreamed of carrying a handkerchief in honor of her dog. Touched by her story, the TSHU team tackled the project and released a new yellow hanky – the TSHU Enzo!
Enzo in All Its Glory
The Enzo yellow hanky is adorned with green Italian greyhounds, printed on pale yellow cotton. A combo of originality and practicality! Made with cotton lawn, this yellow hanky is extremely lightweight. It is handmade in our Provence workshop and features a green rolled edge that matches its unique pattern – with a touch of pale yellow, a reminder of its cotton fabric.
And to help repopulate our precious planet with greenery, know that if you adopt Enzo (the yellow hanky – not the dog!), we will commit to planting a tree. Carry your TSHU handkerchief proudly and don’t let your colleagues down at accounting bring you down with jokes about greyhounds… You now know the true story behind Enzo.
Day-to-Day with Enzo
Thanks to the zero-waste movement, cotton hankies are making a comeback! You can always sport your yellow hanky ‘old school’, letting it protrude artistically from your suit pocket (oh look! He’s got an army of greyhounds in his pocket!) – or, opt for a more discreet approach. In this case, Enzo can simply be folded and put away in your back pocket or stored in his little hanky holder. No need to keep him on a leash, we promise he won’t run away. Really, Enzo was raised well. He’ll wait to serve where you ask him to. On a daily basis, this yellow hanky will bring you many things. 1_ Style. Unique and colorful, he won’t disappoint you. 2_ Waste reduction. Yes, Enzo is meant to be practical and will help you consume fewer paper tissues (or none at all!). Yes, there are many great reasons to adopt Enzo. Looking for one more? If your child has been on your back about getting a dog for ages now, have a sense of humor and give him Enzo! At least he’ll have something handy to dry his tears.
Mastering Enzo (the brave owner’s manual)
You may have been moved by Enzo’s sweet and sad story but now, it’s time for action. Enzo’s more than just a pretty face and he likes to serve. So, how will you use your yellow hanky? The most audacious owners will not hesitate for an instant and will turn to Enzo at the first sign of flu or allergies. But if you’ve always been true to paper tissues (use, throw away… use, throw away…), you might be convinced that you want to do something for the environment but not really know how to tackle this major change. This might help: 1_ Blowing your nose in a cotton handkerchief is super, super pleasant. It’s soft, it’s absorbent – and if you wash your clothes with lavender, it smells really good. 2_ Having a handkerchief on hand is super practical. By keeping it on hand between uses, you make sure that you never end up empty-handed when you need one the most! Oh and lastly, know that Enzo gets softer and more supple with every wash. Less scary now, huh?
