Thanks for this! I needed some stuff for conventions this year and this is just perfect. Whatever scented oil was put on it smells amazing but I have no clue what it is xD

The Hanky Code

This project came into existence as my Thesis is college. The installation of 20 hankies on a ten foot wall was beautiful and naughty, and everyone wanted one!
Originally printed on the floor of my one bedroom apartment and in the middle of the night at the printshop, this project has grown exponentially over the last four years. With trial and error and a lot of help from friends and the community, the Hanky Code has been in production non-stop for four years, adding new designs and expanding the project steadily.
There is a rich history behind the code, and a lot of thought went into re-interpreting it for current times. As the project grows and picks up momentum we are able to expand and distribute the project rapidly.

The Hanky Code can now be found at these locations:
The Pleasure Chest, CA
Early to Bed, IL
Sugar, MD
Smitten Kitten, MN
Blue Stockings, NY
Passional Boutique, PA
