A personalised wedding handkerchief is an ideal gift for brides to be, and can also be a discreet something blue.

Many of today’s lace handkerchiefs are made using nylon lace, but here at Extra Special Touch, we like  the more traditional cotton lace hankies. The Nottingham lace we use is made in the last remaining factory of it’s type in the UK, on vintage lace looms to original Victorian patterns, with Egyptian cotton. The factory is only a few miles away from our Nottingham studio, and we have been lucky enough to have a tour of the Cluny Lace factory to see the lace being made.

We handmake all our cotton Lace hankies in our Nottingham studio, and everything is made individually to order. You can have the recipients name, initials or short message embroidered up to 100 characters and in a choice of colours and lettering styles.

If you want to keep the vintage wedding look, chose a pale colour for the embroidery.

You’ve always been here for me, each day throughout my life,
And I would like to thank you Mum, as I become a wife,
I’m proud that you’re beside me, to watch my new life start,
Thank you Mum, I love you, from the bottom of my heart!

Absolutely beautiful, this is the 2nd product I've brought in as many days.. I picked this for my future mum in law and I just can not wait for my wedding day when both my mum and mum in law get to open their very special gifts.

Thank you so very much

Maureen Watts

Thank you Heidi for your prompt attention to my order of a ivory lacey handkerchief for my daughter on her wedding day. It's so pretty and delicate; my daughter was absolutely delighted with it, and the blue embroidered date with her name, she carried it with her bouquet in line with the old tradition of a mother presenting her daughter with a handkerchief on her wedding day! She has told me it's a gift to cherish for many years to come. Thank you!

Mrs Goodridge

I have just received this special hankie that I ordered for my soon to be Daughter-in-Law for her wedding to my youngest son on October 8th. I had been searching for some time for a small keepsake that would be personal to her. This fits the bill perfectly. The exquisite lace and embroidery is really lovely and I hope Laura will love it as much as I do.
I also ordered men's inscribed hankies for my son who is the groom and his elder brother who is to be best man. They also are beautifully done..The "Extra Special Finishing Touch " are the card envelopes that I also ordered.
I cannot thank Heidi and her team enough for these lovely keepsakes. ( made me shed more tears as I unwrapped them )

Auntie Sue

I bought this for my niece, she is going to use it as her 'something blue'. It arrived quickly and is lovely. Choose the gift box option as it comes with a lovely gift label and string to tie it up. I would recommend this as a little extra for any bride
