最近的我開始迷上手帕這玩意。

原因為何呢?而是近來我發現,除了一般常用的衛生紙品質日漸薄弱(糟糕)以外,擦拭在身上還會起棉絮,那種殘留感真是不愉快,也因此我開始興起尋求替代之品的方案,而紙手帕又不甚環保,因此兩相權衡之下,可以洗滌、且經常使用後會變得柔軟的的手帕就逐漸變成我放在常帶包裡的選擇。

然而自己為何從不帶手帕、忽略手帕,到如今開始重視手帕呢?

從過往家庭教育裡,媽媽們都會提醒小孩帶手帕、衛生紙等,低年級的時期,老師還會特地執行檢查,以確保大家都有盡到帶手帕的責任,卻從來都沒有鼓勵如何好好的用手帕,而到底有沒有好好用也不知,一般孩子在洗手後也都帥氣且瀟灑地甩手,而不是用手帕溫柔的抹手。

ATTN: feelings up ahead. 😂 I just want to take a moment and say THANK YOU to all of you who have supported this crazy new venture. The success of Hemlock has been beyond what I allowed myself to dream of. I wanted to find a new outlet for my artwork—a new way of using the drawings and paintings that I do late at night to help me unwind from a long day of extroverting and leading the ship at @1canoe2. I thought it would be a fun little project and make something that I couldn’t find out in the marketplace-artwork and color intensive soft cotton bandanas. Now 3 months (!!!) into this venture I am feeling excited about its success and am buzzing with new ideas and projects. It’s like the early days on 1canoe2 all over again. My realization here is that I love to create. Whether that’s a drawing, a new product form, or a new brand—I just love the creation of it all. The starting fresh and experimenting. I feel full to bursting with sunshiny feelings about it. So thank you! Really thank you all so much! I wouldn’t be here without you. ♥️ . . . . #bandana #bandanastyle #bandanascarf #scarfstyle #anthropologie #anthrostyle #theeverygirl #handkerchief #momstyle #modestfashion #adventuregirls #everydaymadewell #madewell #fashioninspo #mompreneur #mombiz #girlboss #outfitideas #bohostyle #bohochic #printandpattern #outdoorstyle #ootd #ootdfashion #ootdinspo #capsulewardrobe #hemlockgoods #hemlock #hemlockbandanas

長大之後,我喜歡的作家松浦彌太郎,也在自己的書中提到「搭好熨衣板,備好乾淨的墊布,熨斗里裝上蒸汽用水,敞開窗戶讓自然風穿越房間。在和煦的陽光下,窗簾隨風飄舞。……讓蒸汽慢慢掃過袖子和背部。還有手帕,愛馬仕的手帕被熨斗一貼,皺褶立即令人愉悅地舒展,神奇地重現光彩。與此同時,我的內心仿佛也被妥帖熨平。這種感覺是如此溫馨地支撐著自己的每一天。」不得不說,妥帖熨平的織物,真的會讓人在撫觸之際有安心的溫柔感,也讓我逐漸確定日後要帶手帕的重要性。

在日本的傳統裡手拭巾有多種用途,雖然如今經常被小毛巾、手帕代替,但仍然是一種方便和環保的用具。它主要用作擦手、身體及拭汗,是日本人的生活必需品。手拭巾不只主要當作毛巾使用,也可以作為禮品包裝,近年來,我特別喜歡用手拭巾包裝的禮品,相較於繁複多禮、即使精美卻因為摺痕美觀只能使用一次的紙包裝,溫暖觸手、色彩鮮明,可多次重複使用的手巾布包裝,更顯得用途多多。

身上多帶條不佔體積的小布,以備萬一,總是好的。
