The Pierre Cardin handkerchiefs are the epitome of quality handkerchiefs. The elegant appearance is a consequence of the high quality weave of the cotton we use, that has an unbeatable soft feel. The cotton's absorbency and durability make it a great choice for consistent everyday use. Ideal for everyday because the permanent press never needs to be ironed; always ready right out of the wash . Pierre Cardin elegance is carried through out the packaging. Each of the thirteen handkerchiefs are individually folded. To fold a handkerchief: The Two Point Fold 1. Fold the pocket square in half, then fold again in half lengthwise so that you have a smaller square. 2. Fold up one half and slide it to to the left or right to create the double points. 3. Fold the right, left, and bottom corners so they meet at the middle of the square. 4. Adjust the handkerchief folds as necessary to fill the width of the pocket, then place in your pocket.
