Set of 2 Large Handmade Hankies –Burgundy & Grey Geometrics
Cotton Hankies are a great way to reduce your household single-use paper products. They are ideal for daily use or as a gift.
All Large Hankies are 30 x 30 cm square and have mitred, machine sewn edges rather than rolled hems to ensure they are robust for daily use and machine washing.
Hankies are machine washable, 40°C is recommended. The materials have all been washed and dried before I made the Hankies in order to reduce any possibility of fabric shrinkage. Hankies can be ironed at an appropriate setting for Cotton.
With care these Hankies should last for many years.
Sewing with leftovers, remnants, seconds and repurposed fabrics I aim to ensure no scrap is left behind. The tiniest scraps I have left are incorporated into quilts, used to tie parcels and attach labels. No two items are exactly alike but you can often see scraps of the same fabric incorporated into other products I make, using up every last piece. Cotton is a precious resource, whilst it has many positive properties, being biodegradeable and compostable, the crop needs a lot of water. This is why I am so committed to using fabric that might end up in landfill, there is often a great deal of useful life left in a textile.
