Antique HandkerchiefPetit FleurA5 Size (fits Cousin)

      The handkerchief importer and manufacturer Blooming Nakanishi has been around for 140 years. For this techo cover we chose a charming image from their World Nations collection, which contains over 3,000 designs. Its abundant detail mean you’ll be able to gaze at it every day as you reach for your techo without getting tired of it.



      The Petit Fleur design depicts a vast green field dotted with blooming yellow flowers. Carrying this design around with you is like taking a refreshing deep breath, surrounded by the natural scenery it depicts.



      The cover design is accented on the pen-holders by another vintage handkerchief design, featuring gently blooming yellow flowers slightly different from those on the main cover.

      The cover is made from a fine-grain polyester that feels pleasant to the touch and is reminiscent of a cotton handkerchief.



      Carrying this cover, you’re sure to feel like you’ve got your favorite fresh, iron-pressed handkerchief tucked neatly into your bag.

      Please Read Before You Buy

      In order to provide you with the most satisfaction for your product, we've compiled a list of warnings, potential issues, and tips to keep in mind for this particular product. Please be sure to read this information carefully before placing your order.

      Actual specifications may vary from listing

      Each item is individually assembled and sewn by hand by a factory worker. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.

      Color and print may vary slightly

      This material is first printed or dyed and then later sewn onto the cover. While colors are designed to be consistent, there may be uneven coloring or slight shade variances between covers. This may also happen across a single cover, such as a pocket compared to the rest of the cover. In addition, on rare occasions, there may be small black or white dots visible on the print. This is an unavoidable aspect of the manufacturing process.

      Cover may contain variations in stitching or loose lining

      When this cover is open flat, exterior stitching areas may appear puckered and lining material may be loose.

      White spots around stitching

      Due to the characteristics of the print and product material, the sewing process may expose the white of the original material around the stitches.

      Pen holders are rigid at first

      The pen holders are rigid at first, making it difficult to insert pens. You can speed up the breaking-in process by rolling the pen holders in your hand.

      Pen holder fits pens up to 13.5 mm wide

      The pen holder is designed to perfectly fit the 12.2 mm (0.48”) diameter Jetstream pen offered as a free bonus gift with select Japanese-version Hobonichi Web Shop products. Pens with certain shapes and materials may be difficult to pull through the holder. The holder can fit pens up to 13.5 mm (0.53”) in diameter.

      Avoid storing in hot and humid places

      Please avoid storing your product in hot, humid places or placing it atop other objects for long periods of time as this may result in lower quality and color stains.
