If you were one of the first people to get one of my Vintage Hankie scarves, it was probably made from some of Jackie’s hankies. When I first began making the scarves, Lesleigh emailed me and said her mother collected hankies for years and would like to make a trade. She would give me her mother’s collection and I would make her mom a scarf with her hankies. Lesleigh told me her mother was very fashionable at 82. You can see the truth in that in Jackie’s pictures.
One of the things I love about these scarves is they seem to appeal to women of all ages. One woman bought a scarf for herself and one for her granddaughter. (and her granddaughter really like it). The fashion gap between a woman in her teens and woman in her 80’s can be vast. I’m seeing these scarves can span that gap. Through the scarves, these hankies, that had so much meaning to the person who saved them, are relevant again, not only to that person, but to someone who may never even have seen one of these hankies before. A delicate connection between generations.
