In 1936 Anthony Nasharr, Sr. cofounder of Nasharr Freres, made his first of many trips to China to start importing  hand embroidered Handkerchiefs.

He  had the linen shipped from Ireland to China….Then in China the linen was cut to size and the pattern for each Handkerchief was stenciled on the fabric for the Chinese Ladies to follow as they hand embroidered in their homes during the winter months when they could not work in the fields.

Mr Nasharr traveled around the world for many years importing Handkerchiefs, scarfs, and women’s apparel from Madeira (Portugal) Switzerland, Ireland, France, Italy, Majorca (Spain), and Japan.

All our Handkerchiefs are unused salesman’s samples, “one of a kind” samples from the overseas companies selling to Nasharr Freres, and stock that has never been seen in many years!  Many still have their original tags attached.

We have well over 1,000 Handkerchiefs….including Antique Wedding handkerchiefs, children’s designs embroidered or printed.  Also Christening Baby Bonnets of a linen handkerchief made about 40 years ago.  Prices ranging from a few dollars to several hundred dollars each.

We also have scarfs of different fabrics and sizes, and lace mantias and squars.
