To Katie Dix handkerchiefs are our personal historybook. In the story of Shakespeare about Othello and Desdemona the handkerchief is a symbol love and marital fidelity. And I wanted to incorporate the symbols of hope, faith, love and my symbol of the start of a relationship.
The top of the handkerchief is made from the piece of silk I got from Karen, embroidered with silk thread and backed with white cotton. A silk hanky with its own story of friendship, love and life.
