Pocket squares made of silk
Color for GentlemenThe brightly colored and brightly patterned handkerchief is currently experiencing a revival in men's breast pockets. As so often, the devil is in the details. You see cheap, sloppily sewn, colorful cotton handkerchiefs sticking out of pockets everywhere. But also (or especially) here it is worth taking a closer look.
High quality silk print
Folding the pocket square is highly individual and we have outlined a few options elsewhere. When it comes to the material, it is worth considering whether such a pocket handkerchief in the breast pocket should also serve a practical purpose - i.e. as a handkerchief just in case. If this is not the case, silk with a high-quality print is the best choice for adding a touch of colour. Matching sets consisting of a tie (or bow tie) and scarf are, in our opinion, dispensable.
Fine linen embroidered
Linen handkerchiefs from Hamburg: Kornelia Maria Lempa has been handcrafting since she was a child and later attended the Royal School of Needlework.
From Naples: hand-rolled silk
This collection is particularly important to us: at our Neapolitan manufacturer Calabrese 1924, some of the sewing is done at home for us.
