There's still time to get in on our 💥Weekend Sale💥 20% off all of our Ready to Ship category using coupon code "readytoship"!
Six months ago, if someone were to ask me, “if there’s one thing you cannot live without, what would it be?” I’d immediately reply “paper tissues”. I used paper tissues for everything - and I mean everything! The idea of keeping hankies or reusing napkins just seemed gross to me. However, it all dawned on me the first time I had dinner at my boyfriend’s place, when I asked for a tissue and he gave me a cloth napkin. He said, “it’s ironic that you want to reduce your waste while you’re constantly using tissues to wipe up every mess”. Swapping tissues to cloth napkins was probably the biggest challenge for me because I had to get over my irrational fear of germs and constantly remind myself that the grime and dirt will be gone after a wash. Anyways, I got these beautiful embroidered napkins at the charity shop. You can also DIY your own cloth tissues by cutting up old clothes. What has been the hardest swap for you?

I had some material left over from a skirt I made a few months back. I attempted a split stitch for my initials and it came out a bit clunkier and chunkier than I wanted... but still! I love this pattern, and I bloody love a cotton twill. I still have some of this material left so if you would like one just let me know! The hankie is approx 8inchesx8inches and can be embroidered with whatever you like ☺️☺️🤧 #achooembroidery #achoo #embroidery #hankies #handkerchief #instashop
The new cutlery wraps and hankies are in beautiful hues of blue 💙.
Hankies can be used again and again to replace single-use paper tissues. These hankies are a generous 30cm x 30cm. Larger than other hankies in the One Fine Phoenix store.
Say no to plastic straws and cutlery and bring your own! Cutlery wraps can be thrown in your bag as an on-the-go kit. .
Find them at onefinephoenix.etsy.com
Transitioning to hankies has taken me a little while - mostly in sorting out routines to make it super easy.
I used to have a box of tissues in the kitchen and another in the bedroom. Like some other transitions, I tried just not buying more but learnt that there are *some* times when they are handy. I compost tissues whenever I can so go for recycled/unbleached/minimal plastic packaging. I tried keeping one box in my wardrobe but it was still too convenient so I have now moved it to the linen cupboard! On my bedroom dresser and in the kitchen I instead have a small pot (actually!) where I keep clean hankies, so they’re really accessible and convenient when needed.
When it comes to washing, I hold on to used ones til I have a few, then I soak them in hot soapy water for a bit before putting them on a hot wash with my towels (in a delicates bag) or handwashing if there isn’t a load ready to go on. Then line dry in the sun (hopefully!) and a hot iron and they’re ready to go again! 🤧
