The Story behind Vanessa.
Vanessa. Splendid, sparkling! An eclectic array of bold colours, emojis, sweets and pineapples! Passionate about Japanese culture and renown fashion icon, Vanessa Pilon had adopted hankies for their ecological properties before discovering TSHU. We just couldn’t resist inviting her to co-create this joyful, feminine handkerchief!
Style and Craftsmanship.
This coral & white two-ply handkerchief features a unique hand printed pattern on light, coral-coloured cotton lawn. It is doubled with white cotton sateen, for more comfort and absorbency, and it is framed with contrasting fuchsia thread. Ethically made in Montréal (Canada), this cotton hanky boasts an unusual shape with its folded corner neatly sown into place. Its bold fuschia 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 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 Vanessa 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”. Vanessa 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].
