Women's Handkerchiefs

Although considered to be somewhat old fashioned by some people, women's handkerchiefs are actually cool and modern accessories to carry around in your handbag.

Reasons to carry women's handkerchiefs

Carrying a handkerchief in your bag somehow makes a woman appear more lady like. The standard square handkerchief is typically made from soft feel fabric that is kinder on the nose than paper. Prolonged use won't leave your nose feeling raw unlike tissues.

Unlike a paper tissue, handkerchiefs do not disintegrate when moist. They can therefore be hastily used for emergencies like bandaging wounds and for wiping away perspiration or tears.

Choosing a handkerchief means that you are using less paper, producing less waste and saving resources.

Most styles of washable women's handkerchiefs are conveniently supplied in multipacks. A generous pack of eight will comfortably see you through an entire week. You will also save money by not buying disposable tissues.

Different material types of women's handkerchiefs

Natural 100% cotton is breathable and lightweight. Pure cotton handkerchiefs also have a soft feel and they are more likely to last longer than other materials.

Polyester handkerchiefs are lightweight, durable and resistant to wrinkles, but may not last as long as cotton or cotton blend handkerchiefs.

Typically made from a 50/50 mix of cotton and polyester fibres, cotton blend handkerchiefs are hardwearing.

Different types of women's handkerchiefs

Plain handkerchiefs are simple and basic, perfect for those who do not like a fussy pattern or design. They are usually made from plain white fabric with a white trim border. Alternatively, for a pop of colour, why not choose a bright, bold shade to mix things up a bit?

Cotton and cotton blend handkerchiefs that are embroidered with your initials ensure that they never go astray. Most personalised handkerchiefs can accommodate up to three individual letters.

Women's handkerchiefs that are decorated with pretty floral designs have vintage appeal.
