Handkerchiefs designed by Yoshishige Watanabe, art director of KIGI, to go on sale from May 31

KIGI will release handkerchiefs with delicate line illustrations by Yoshishige Watanabe, art director of KIGI. The themes are based on the iconic motifs of Classics: hearts, angels, and roses.

Four designs, six pieces in total. One is a printed design + one-point embroidery, and the other is a printed design only.

The material of the handkerchiefs is cotton linen. It has both softness and crispness.

The frame-like stitching is called "one hem," which is both strong and accents the design.
