Graphic designer Simon Cook has collaborated with silk scarf designer Lucy Jay to create an unusual series of pocket handkerchiefs…

Cook was featured in our graduate special issue last September, following his graduation from the graphic design course at Nottingham Trent University. He has produced a number of new projects since then, and also held an exhibition of his work at Concrete Hermit, but this is first foray into handkerchief design.

Cook and Jay have produced six different designs for their handkerchief range, all of which are shown here. The designs are printed onto 100% silk crepe de chine, and are 22×22 cm in size. They are £24 each, and available online on Cook’s website (stoneandspear.bigcartel.com), or Jay’s website (lucy-jay.com). They are also on sale at the Design Museum shop. Happy sneezing!
