Celebrate Grandparents Day

Celebrate Grandparents Day

Celebrate Grandparents Day this year on Sept 13, 2015 by giving a set of 3 large organic cotton flannel handkerchiefs by The Organic Handkerchiefs Company.

Your parents do a lot for you and your children throughout the year. They brave the school run, provide free babysitting, and always seem willing to do the big Sunday dinner. Where would we be without them?

So this year celebrate Grandparents Day by giving your children’s grandparents the pleasure of organic cotton flannel handkerchiefs. They come in a set of 3 and are incredibly soft, especially on delicate skin. You can explain to your children’s grandparents that organic cotton is what cotton used to be in their day without any chemicals sprayed on the cotton crops. It is just cotton the way it was intended to be – natural! You can also tell them that the flannel is especially interesting because it has never been bleached, so you can still see the tiny cottonseed in the organic fabric.

All handkerchiefs from The Organic Handkerchiefs Company are handmade right here in the USA using certified organic fabric.

A set of 3 Large Organic Cotton Flannel Handkerchiefs are only $20.99 – the perfect gift to celebrate grandparents day for your children’s special grandparents.

Organic Handkerchiefs Co celebrate first year making hankies in USA!

Organic Handkerchiefs Co celebrate first year making hankies in USA!

Organic Handkerchiefs Co celebrate first year making hankies in USA! I can’t believe it’s been a full year since I moved from England back to the USA where I am from originally. Although I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana I lived many years abroad and I can’t tell you how much I missed the South – the warmth, the moisture, the friendliness and yes, the food! And nothing about my Southern memories let me down.

So just to make sure everyone is up-to-date here with The Organic Handkerchiefs Company, my name is Jennifer Barrass and I have been the sole owner of the business since 2007. Over a period of a few years, in Virginia, my parents ran the ‘American sister company’ of The Organic Handkerchiefs Company for me, making hankies in the USA. They have since retired, and the whole lot of us now live in Florida, where, apart from taking care of my own daughter, I help take care of my folks and now I am the only one making hankies in the USA!

It has been a successful year for me here and a relatively easy transition moving my business back across the pond. I love what I do and I take so much pride in my handmade organic handkerchiefs that I can’t imagine ever doing anything else.

It does take some time to settle in to a new place so you may find that in terms of my social media, I went a bit AWOL but I can assure you, I am back and ready to have some fun! I hope you will enjoy my adventures, or is that misadventures, with me!

To that extent, I would like to offer all of my wonderful customers a 10% discount throughout the month of September 2015 on their entire order. Simply add the coupon code ‘1year’ as you checkout. Again, thanks to you all for allowing The Organic Handkerchiefs Co to celebrate our first year making hankies in the USA! Home » Blog » Page 5

Give your honey a hanky on Valentines Day

Take the eco way out this year and give your honey a hanky on Valentines Day! Not just any hanky mind you, but an organic handkerchief from The Organic Handkerchiefs Company. Choose from a luscious silky cotton hanky set of 3 or a soft cuddly flannel hanky, also in a set of 3. We offer 4 different sizes to suit any taste, but may we suggest the 11″ x 11″ medium sized organic hanky for that special lady in your life. If you are buying for your man, may we suggest the 14″ x 14″ large sized organic hanky. So for Valentines Day, just pair a set of 3 hankies with perhaps a bar of high quality organic dark chocolate and a romantic hand-made card and you’ve got February 14th in the bag!

Happy Organic Raw Gluten Free Eco Friendly Holidays

from The Organic Handkerchiefs Company

For at least half the friends I have, this is pretty much what I’m going to be saying to them at Christmas and Hanukkah this year! One friend only buys organic, one only eats raw food, one is gluten free and organic and one only buys eco-friendly. Whew! Now, if these were your friends, what would you be buying them as gifts this holiday season?

For me, the answer is simple. I’ll be giving them a set of organic handkerchiefs. And, no, it’s not just because I own The Organic Handkerchiefs Company. It just makes sense to me.

One, I only use GOTS certified organic cotton to make the hankies. The whole idea of using a handkerchief instead of a paper tissue is that it is an eco-friendly choice because you can use a hanky, throw it in the washing machine and use again. Paper tissues get thrown out making them a more wasteful product.

Organic Flannel Handkerchiefs are unbleached and the flannel, still in its fairly raw state, still shows some of the tiny bits of cotton seeds in them. You usually never see these because conventional material is made to have this part dyed to match the color of the fabric. And, of course, I think you can safely assume organic handkerchiefs are indeed gluten-free.

The organic handkerchiefs from The Organic Handkerchiefs Company were designed with the whole family in mind. That is why I created up to 4 different sizes so that the smaller ones could be for children, the medium sized ones for women to carry in their purses and the larger ones for the men to fold in quarters and keep in their pocket. (The fourth size is the huge hanky and that is only for the serious hanky user – trust me!)

So now that I know I’ll be giving my friends organic handkerchiefs this year and I can pretty much figure out what sized hanky I want to give, my only thought now goes to which organic handkerchief material should I choose? I offer organic handkerchiefs in organic flannel which is cream colored, organic cotton in both white and black and a very special, limited edition organic bamboo flannel in bright white.

I can tell you the organic flannel handkerchiefs are my best sellers, mainly because they actually look organic in that earthy kind of way. They are really soft and it is an unusual material to make hankies out of but is actually pretty fantastic and in the winter time, I think they are the perfect hanky to carry around.

I love to give the White Organic Cotton Handkerchiefs out to business people types. What I mean to say is anyone that has to really dress up to go to work every day – the white cotton would be my choice.

The Black Organic Cotton Handkerchiefs I would give to the modern, young, hip crowd, especially if they like to wear a lot of black. These are also great for anyone that works in an orchestra pit for a living. (This is not a joke, but actually a popular item for this crowd!)

And, finally, I would give the Organic Bamboo Flannel Handkerchiefs to my closest friends as the material is so unique, so soft and ultra plush that they would know I had chosen something extra special.

Well, that’s my Christmas and Hanukkah list complete. I wish you luck in your gift giving and hope I have helped shed some light on what to give those organic, raw, gluten-free types for Christmas or Hanukkah. Home » Blog » Page 5

Celebrate your Independence with a Hanky this 4th of July

Celebrate your Independence with a Hanky this 4th of July from The Organic Handkerchiefs Company

To celebrate the 4th of July you need to celebrate independence! So how about this year celebrate your independence with a hanky this 4th of July by kicking off your 4th of July celebrations by freeing yourself from paper facial tissues and start using organic cotton handkerchiefs instead? Think about it – using handkerchiefs instead of tissues saves a tree and the landfills. And have you seen the price of tissues lately? These one-time-only tissues can be hard on your wallet. Yet, a set of organic handkerchiefs could last several months to years.

If you currently don’t use handkerchiefs, I recommend a set of 3 Small White Organic Cotton Handkerchiefs from The Organic Handkerchiefs Company. They are 8”x 8”, about the size of a paper tissue, so would make a great idea for the first timer. So go on and start waving the ‘white flag’ of freedom this 4th of July by getting a set of 3 white organic cotton handkerchiefs – you’ll be helping the environment and your wallet!
