About

Hand Embroidered Hankies: A classic accessory with a modern flavor.

Why hankies?
You may not know it yet, but a hand embroidered handkerchief is really an accessory that everyone should have at least one. Wrenbirdarts' hankies aren't the hankies that your grandpa carries wadded up in his pocket. Like almost every accessory worth it's salt, hankies have also undergone a transformation.

Today, a hankie is a charming little accessory that is the unassuming compliment to your personality. Maybe it's a nickname, or an animal, or even a little mantra to carry around. Hankies are tactile. You can feel the embroidery stand out from the fabric. Sometimes they may catch a stray tear, clean off your glasses, that hankie is there for you, just in case.

Hankies are gifted for lots of occasions too. For a far away friend, someone going through a life change, someone you loooove, an anniversary, a friendiversary, birthdays, Valentines Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, new jobs, break-ups, make-ups, and just because. And, of course, weddings, for the wedding party, to propose to your bridesmaids, for your mom or dad, and of course for the bride, there will be tears.

About Erin
Erin "Wren" Duncan is the creative stitcher that is wrenbirdarts. She is best known for the quirky style of her original embroidered handkerchiefs. She is self-taught in all forms of her artwork. Erin began hand embroidering in 2012 and has since sold tens of thousands of hankies.

Erin grew up in the Midwest, and after earning a Master's degree in Social Work and working as a grant writer, moved to Chicago and began selling real estate. After moving back to Denver and falling in love with everything hand embroidery, Erin scrapped all previous work, and started a business selling her original designs through Etsy and local boutiques. Her nickname (wren bird) became the name for her business, thus wrenbirdarts was hatched.

"My hand embroidered hankies are the perfect gift when you want something that is completely personal. I love embroidering inside jokes or nicknames and once even a slice of pizza. Don't you just love to receive something that was made just for you?".

Erin's work has appeared in SeattleMet, Parade, and Glamour Magazines. You may have also seen her on Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, Huffpost Weddings and her work has been featured on numerous blogs and listicles.

She currently lives in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, and enjoys crafting, cooking, writing, and drinking craft beer.
