I bet it has been years since you thought about using a handkerchief. Well, you don't know what you are missing!
Last winter, I was on a business trip that I shouldn't have been on since I had one of the worst colds of my life. A friend saw the distress I was in and gave me a soft, lovely handkerchief to use for the duration of my cold. Did it make the cold go away? No, but I have to say that using that handkerchief made me feel better in some small way. I wasn't schlepping around paper tissues, finding them wadded up in my pockets and purse. I always had my new handkerchief tucked away and ready to pull out anytime I needed it.
Nothing feels more special than a soft, beautiful handkerchief against your face -- much nicer than a paper tissue. And, needless to say, much better for the environment than using all that paper. The more you use and wash these soft cotton handkerchiefs, the softer they will get. Once you use these, you'll never go back to paper. These Fair Trade 100% cotton handkerchiefs are hand-woven on bamboo looms by indigenous women in India using low impact dyes. Because they are handmade, they may vary slightly in size.
