Monogram 'S' Vintage Handkerchief Sachet

Monogram 'S' Vintage Handkerchief Sachet


This pretty monogrammed sachet has been handcrafted from two vintage handkerchiefs. The first is white cotton with a plain rolled edge and elaborate embroidered monogram—an "S" set within an oval border done exclusively in gray and white. Most of the tiny circles and flower petals are eyelet and open to the layer below. Underneath is a second handkerchief, also white cotton, with variegated white and gray crocheted edging. Both are layered over a contemporary floral cotton fabric—gray background with trailing flowers in white, deep pink, and light olive green. This fabric is also used for the back. The layers are secured by a gray and black vintage button stack. It measures approximately 6 inches square.

Each of my sachets is filled with a mixture of French lavender buds and buckwheat hulls—the lavender for it's intense scent and the buckwheat for lightness (lavender can be expensive and heavy for shipping, using buckwheat helps offset both these issues). Customers have told me that the scent lasts for years and years; just give them a squeeze to refresh the scent!

You can use these sachets in your linen cupboard to repel moths but they're really too pretty to hide away. Lavender is renowned as a sleep aid so keep one on your bedside table for those nights you're having trouble falling asleep.

Please note that I cannot ship lavender-filled products outside the United States due to import restrictions on plant items.
