This white linen handkerchief is hand-embroidered with a picture of Bug Light, one of Maine's famous lighthouses. Known as Portland Breakwater Lighthouse in the books, Bug Light is a famous local landmark.
This handkerchief is made from 100% Irish handkerchief linen, for a crisp, cool texture that will only get better with use. Linen is stronger, absorbs more water, can withstand higher heat, and lasts longer than cotton, and the Irish weave the finest linen in the world. These handkerchiefs are hand-cut and finished with a narrow rolled hem, and are approximately 13 inches square.
The embroidery, done in any color or shade you choose, consists of stem stitch and chain stitch, to give the bicycle dimension. Each is embroidered completely by hand - not machine - and, although it takes more skill and more time, the results are worth it.
I proudly stock the entire DMC line, so if you have a specific color, don't hesitate to let me know! We have five hundred shades and upon request I can send you a PDF of the color card so you can find the one perfect for you.
