The origin of handkerchiefs
The name 'handkerchief' actually says just enough: it is cloth. A cloth that you can keep in your pocket. Very practical and simplistic, but the handkerchief has a rich history! The first time pocket-handkerchief dates back to the time of Greeks and Romans, carrying cloth that served to wipe the sweat off their foreheads and blow in their noses. This cloth was called a sudarium. In the West, the first handkerchief of cotton originated only a long time later, in the 20th century. At that time, pocket-handkerchiefs were an outward sign of wealth, so the canvases were richly decorated, with embroideries and lace.
Once cotton handkerchiefs for men and women were accepted and adopted by everyone, people were specific colors on specific days. F.i. Red pocket-handkerchiefs were for everyday use. On Sundays, a white handkerchief was used. When one was in mourning, people would choose a white with black or dark blue cloth. Nowadays, pocket-handkerchiefs come in all kinds of colors and sizes, and you can easily pick the color and print that you like best! At Suitable, we also have a wide range of handkerchiefs for men, both online and in our shops.
