Tissue Issue

Personal hygiene is of utmost importance in Japan as is the notion of being 'green'. Whilst traveling around Tokyo I noticed that most people carry handkerchiefs or small towels with them at all times. These were often made from beautiful Japanese silks and printed with traditional cherry blossoms. Not only providing something very pretty to sneeze into or to clean sticky hands with but also a much greener alternative to tissues.

Of course I had to search them out for myself and bring some home. The slightly larger one is toweling and would be perfect for someone with a little one in tow. However, I will be using these in my kit, providing some serious eye candy during those early morning make up calls.
