The Return of the Handkerchief?

"For centuries women have gathered to embroider, quilt or weave. These groups provided a place to speak, listen, laugh and cry. The Tamielle Handkerchief Club is devoted to reviving the practice and to bringing back the personal touch. To this end, each handkerchief, embellished with vintage motifs, features a tiny print telling you name of the woman who made it. Beautifully presented in gift boxes, the handkerchiefs for men, include charming classic cars and sporting illustrations they would not only make a great Father’s Day gift, but provide an ethical income for their makers who come from all over the world. Visit our Object Catalogue to order one from only £15"
