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 to a generous 13 inches and hemmed with a narrow rolled hem, for a personal touch that extends to the smallest details. The linen itself is a warm cream tone, for a sophisticated, Old-World feel.
The embroidery, done in any color or shade you choose, consists of stem stitch artfully tapered to enhance the shape of each letter for a distinguished look. Each is embroidered completely by hand - not machine - and, although it takes more skill and more time, the results are worth it.
Please - I love to have a personal relationship with each of my customers. Message me with any custom requests, specific color shades, or any other questions you have! I love to know where every handkerchief is going, whether to a new grandfather in Ontario, bridesmaids gifts in Italy, or for a sweetheart here at home.
Please leave a message or note on your order with the initials you would like. Thanks!
