The Story behind Moshe.
This colourful cotton handkerchief refers to Habitat 67, an unusual community and housing complex in Montreal (Canada), designed by Israel born architect Moshe Safdie. We love Safdie’s design philosophy that includes “building responsibly”, but we also appreciate the fascinating “Lego block” configuration of Habitat 67 as an architectural wonder. Kudos Mr. Safdie!
Style and Craftsmanship.
This unique cotton handkerchief features emerald green, sky blue, charcoal grey, light grey and lemon yellow cubes on thick, soft white cotton. Moshe is also available in our famous two-ply version for a handkerchief that is still practical in size, but twice as absorbent. Ethically made in Montréal (Canada), this cotton handkerchief boasts an unusual shape with its folded corner neatly sown into place. Its embroidered brand, TSHU, is a seal of elegance and commitment – in fact, we commit to planting a tree for each adopted handkerchief. Thanks to its quality materials, the TSHU handkerchief makes for a practical and durable accessory you’ll never leave the house without – as it is the perfect alliance of style and usefulness. Oh, and FYI, 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 Moshe in the breast pocket of your jacket, as a pocket square. 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”. Be creative. Moshe 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 cotton handkerchief can be tucked pretty much anywhere as it is just thin 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.
