Who’s Gilbert and what does he have to do with this blue handkerchief?
Upon discovering this lovely navy blue organic cotton, we had a vision of crisp, white polka dots delicately screen-printed on it. And what immediately came to mind was Gilbert Bécaud’s famous white spotted ties! Hence, to the sound of Bécaud’s hit “Et maintenant”, the lovely Gilbert handkerchief was born.
Sweat & Skill
This popular blue handkerchief is ethically made by hand by our skilled seamstresses. Featuring crisp white polka dots on navy organic cotton poplin, the two-ply Gilbert handkerchief is doubled up for more absorbency. On the reverse side, a lovely – silky-smooth – white organic cotton sateen that perfectly complements the pattern. So, which side are you on? Print of Plain?
Durable, not disposable.
Thanks to its quality materials, this awesome blue handkerchief is THE thing you’ll never leave home without. Indeed, it’s soft and durable and even after many washes, it still looks damn good. TSHU hankies are made to last! Adopt yours and discover a world where beauty and usefulness go hand in hand.
Less of that, more of this!
Should you prefer a thinner, more traditional handkerchief, you’re in luck: our beautiful Gilbert hanky is also available in single ply, right here. Same great design, less fabric.
Ethical and eco-friendly
So we’ve covered the fact that our seamstresses work in ethical condition. Yes, it makes for a more expensive product, but it’s a small price to pay when we’re talking about human lives! But that’s not all we do at TSHU. We care about people, but we also care about our planet. Yup—adopting a TSHU handkerchief will ensure you save trees by wasting less paper tissues. But above that, we want to reinforce your gesture! So, we plant a tree for each adopted handkerchief (you can find out more about our commitment and us, right here!).
