The Handkerchief Intro Guide: What Are Handkerchiefs Used For?

For many, The Everyday Handkerchief is a new experience. 

One that brings with it a new way of life – an elevation in personal freedom, wellbeing, and eco-consciousness.

Handkerchiefs provide a peaceful assurance that whatever you do, wherever you go, you’ll be covered.  


There is no “right way” of using handkerchiefs because how they are used is inherently unique to how you choose to live your life

What to use them for?

Versatility defines our handkerchiefs. Simply, the more they are carried, the more opportunities for their use begin to appear.

There is then no “right way” of using handkerchiefs because how they are used is inherently unique to how you choose to live your life.

Thankfully, no matter your lifestyle, handkerchiefs can always find their niche.



Reusable Tissue

Handkerchiefs provide a reusable way of being human.

Far more sanitary than a hand, an arm, or… nothing, handkerchiefs offer a more graceful means of covering coughs and sneezes and all that comes with them.  

Infinitely softer than tissues and capable of rapid absorption, our handkerchiefs are woven of European linen – a high performance and naturally antibacterial fabric.

With best part being, they can be washed and used again and again – becoming softer and more absorbent over time.



The Great Outdoors

The utility of handkerchiefs really begins to shine when it comes to travel and the outdoors.

Whether you’re wiping the snow off your goggles or the sweat off your face, handkerchiefs are the perfect outdoor companion.

They evoke a sense of lightness in your travels, equipping you with much of what you’ll need for wherever life takes you.

In this way, handkerchiefs allow you to remain fully present in your environment, so you can be free to experience all it has to offer.



Handsfree Personal Care

Whether we notice it or not, we touch our face a lot.

In 2015, the University of New South Wales performed a study on the frequency of face touching, concluding that students touched their face an average of 23 times per hour.

“On average, each of the 26 observed students touched their face 23 times per hour. Of all face touches, 44% (1,024/2,346) involved contact with a mucous membrane, whereas 56% (1,322/2,346) of contacts involved nonmucosal areas. Of mucous membrane touches observed, 36% (372) involved the mouth, 31% (318) involved the nose, 27% (273) involved the eyes, and 6% (61) were a combination of these regions.”


Using a handkerchief as a hands-free way of touching your face will both improve your wellbeing and keep those pores clean! 



The Everyday Routine

Our handkerchiefs are made for the everyday.

A make-shift coaster for your iced coffee, a wipe for your glasses, a safe haven for persistent allergies, the list goes on…

Handkerchiefs help you traverse the unique day-to-day encounters of your life.

They become a type of companion, there for all the things that make you, you – while also keeping you prepared for whatever life decides to throw your way.




The beauty of handkerchiefs lies in their endless utility



The beauty of handkerchiefs lies in their endless utility.

From covering your basic hygienic needs to absorbing the elements of the outdoors, the practicality of handkerchiefs is unparalleled.

A true everyday carry, whether you find yourself across the world or relaxing at home – they are a remarkably simple way of enhancing your life.

We like to think of our handkerchiefs as a type of canvas, and where you choose to take them and how you choose to use them are the paint that portrays how you choose to live your life.
