This is our white linen pocket square. While it is the most basic of all pocket squares it is also the most important one in any man’s wardrobe. However, being a plain white square piece of fabric makes picking the right one particularly difficult. Not only does it come down to the raw material, which should be pure white in colour, neither too sturdy nor too soft and just the right amount of textural depth but also details like picking the right size for as many breast pockets and folds as possible and evenly made hand sewn hems. This is our pick – and we believe it ticks all the right boxes.

This pocket square is completely handmade from the cutting of the fabric to the sewing of the hand rolled hems by Mungai, a small workshop near Florence . This young company specializes in extraordinary pocket squares made from a variety of materials and works only with a handful of distributors.

We have decided to offer this pocket square in 33 × 33 cm (13 “), an adequate size for its weight to be worn puffed or with a TV fold.
