These Handkerchiefs are embroidered, like those found in a bridal trousseau. Trousseaus always have handkerchiefs, And they have lace handkerchiefs which are saved for special occasions. But then, bones have been sewn into them. I remember the child's game of pulling the wishbone of a chicken; the one who got the longest piece could make a wish. (quoted from catalogue) Louise Bourgeois.
