According to Wikipedia “A handkerchief /ˈhæŋkərtʃɪf/, also called a handkercher or hanky, is a form of a kerchief, typically a hemmed square of thin fabric that can be carried in the pocket or purse, and which is intended for personal hygiene purposes such as wiping one's hands or face, or blowing one's nose.
A handkerchief is also sometimes used as a purely decorative accessory in a suit pocket.” The FatCloth is above all – a modern multipurpose handkerchief. It is meant to be used, not merely as a decorative item, but as an everyday tool of a modern gentleman’s lifestyle. So in a way, FatCloth brings the original usage purposes of handkerchief to the 21st century pocket square culture by using materials that fit todays requirements.
By using silky & smooth microfiber fabric (185 g/m2, 80% polyester, 20% polyamide), the FatCloth can enable heavy-duty usage but still maintain the fabric consistency sleek and well suited to be worn as an accessory like the silk pocket squares of today. What enables this is the microfiber fabric’s durable structure that withstands more repetative machine wash cycles compared to cotton, linen, silk or bamboo satin materials. The FatCloth is absorbant, machine washable and withstands ironing. The fabric does not easily gather wrinkles due to it’s flexibility which makes ironing an option rather than a requirement.
The modern usage situations of FatCloth range from the basic pocket square function, to wiping off sweat, to cleaning glasses or gadgets or even to wiping off dust from sensitive surfaces. Only the users themselves can define or limit the purpose of this handy tool. It combines the usability of silk squares, paper towels and cleaning cloths in a way that fits the lifestyle of modern gentlemen on the go.
