True Story.

  • One 12” x 12” two-ply black & white handkerchief
  • The more you wash it, the more absorbent it will become.
  • Two plies of 100% cotton – printed face: cotton lawn (surprisingly lightweight as cotton lawn (2.3 oz) is so thin it’s almost translucent!) and reverse side: black organic cotton (thick and absorbent)
  • Ethically handmade in Montréal (Canada)
  • One tree planted for each adopted handkerchief

The Story behind Guillaume.

Guillaume, softspoken, intense. A bold handkerchief with vivid colours, high in contrasts, just like Guillaume Wagner, the man who inspired it. Designed in honour of an underlying passion and a fascinating story about humour at its source, this black & white handkerchief is a a token of sacred clowns and their role in society.

Style and Craftsmanship

This black & white two-ply handkerchief features a unique, hand printed pattern with a touch of colour on light, white cotton lawn. It is doubled with black cotton lawn, for a strong contrast and more absorbency, and it is framed with bright yellow thread. Ethically made in Montréal (Canada), this cotton hanky is a synonym of elegance and commitment – in fact, we commit to planting a tree for each adopted handkerchief. Thanks to its quality materials, the TSHU handkerchief is the perfect companion for daily life as it is both practical and durable – the quintessence of style and usefulness. Oh, and by the way, our hankies are not gender-specific. Ladies, gents – as long as you’re bold, this handkerchief’s perfect for you.

How to wear the handkerchief.

Ok, now that we’ve got the basics covered, let’s talk about the exciting stuff! Where to store your hanky (clean or dirty). Sure, gentlemen, you can get away with wearing Guillaume in the breast pocket of your jacket, as a pocket square. It looks that good! But the rebel with a cause wears it inside the pocket of his jacket and abides by the famous words: “One for show, one for blow”. Guillaume also enjoys the back pocket of your jeans, the side flap of your briefcase or even your laptop bag. Just make sure it’s close enough to reach for when you need it the most! Ladies, forget your grandma’s sleeve! This fashionable handkerchief can be tucked pretty much anywhere as it is just sleek enough to fit in your skinny jeans pockets, your bra (if you insist!) and even your boot. But, we’ve also concocted something special for optimal hygiene -> a practical case for transport that you can throw in your purse / diaper bag / executive briefcase and pull out anytime you see fit.

How to use the handkerchief [for the bold].

Now, how about how you use the handkerchief. Well, GO AHEAD, blow! And don’t be afraid, it dries (no really, it does – Copperfield style!). True story. Soon enough, you’ll be boasting your incredible skills at folding the hanky after using it, you’ll become an expert of snot origami, you will master the steps to handkerchief bliss: fold, store and reuse. And, if you have a large nose, a horrible cold or insufferable seasonal allergies, you’ll thank us because the more you wash your handkerchief, the softer it will become!

How to use the handkerchief [for the (just a little less) bold].

Yup, we’ve thought of everyone here! For those of you afraid of germs (it happens) but still excited by handkerchiefs, eager to make a difference for the environment? We’ve got suggestions for you too. Sweaty? Wipe your brow. Nervous? Wipe your hands! Sad? Wipe your tears. Hungry? Wipe your face. Clumsy? You get the drift… (and when no one’s looking, go ahead – give it a try, be bold and blow!)
