Poetic and antique handkerchiefs delicately embroidered Handkerchiefs abandoned at the bottom of a drawer of meme

One day, at the turn of the Emmaus haberdashery department, Mathilde became eager to hunt for old handkerchiefs. She assures us it was a coincidence. A month later, she decided to create LesGrandsMouchoirs
LesGrandsMouchoirs brings together two ambitions, to reuse things (handkerchiefs in our case) already manufactured and often abandoned at the bottom of a meme drawer. The second is to give them a new youth, a flowery moment through embroidery.

Each handkerchief is different. They are found right to left, the work is artisanal, so your handkerchief will be unique.

Our small tissues are thoroughly washed and ironed before being sent to you from natural products (soda percarbonate, soda crystals, homemade detergent ...)

Lesgrandsmouchoirs was created with respect for the environment, a desire to surround oneself with sustainable products and to eliminate the futile or disposable. We therefore very logically chose the GrowingPaper stationery for our envelopes and small boxes (seeded paper). *or at Papier Maki (recycled envelopes)
Result: the shipment is at most waste-free. The envelope and the small cards will turn into pretty flowers, the old and antique ribbons, surrounding the handkerchief, are kept in your little treasure box.
Mathilde also wanted to surround herself with creators to embellish her project.
Thus, the young illustrator @novelli.elsa has realized her logo, the creator @lapirate.fr, all the pretty stamps that accompany the shipments and photos are taken by a young and talented photographer, @hardyphotographer.

Mathilde takes out her handkerchiefs by small collection it is rare that she embroiders duplicates. She finds her ideas and inspirations very often in illustrations. Flowers, silhouette, sweet words, we hunt a little bit of everything at LesGrandsMouchoirs!

** To keep your small handkerchief, wash it preferably by hand, soak it with Marseille soap in warm water, rub and wring out gently. Then let it air dry. In the machine, although not recommended, slip it carefully into a net after a first rinse (max 30 °, delicate washing)
