“I wiped my tears away the other day and strung my handkerchief up to dry. Then I changed my style puttin’ on a smile and went out to face the world.”

(Stevie Wonder)

The LRRH_CONTRIBUTION BY edition is a tribute to an almost forgotten accessory of personal hygiene that we would like to bring back to limelight: the handkerchief. We never thought paper tissues were a worthy replacement anyway. We developed the concept for the edition at the peak of the Corona-crises, reflecting that with two rubber bands only, any handkerchief can easily be turned into a face mask.

In no time at all we received designs by 57 international artists. Big thanks to all of them for participating in this non-profit project! The complete revenue goes to Kunst hilft geben für Arme und Wohnungslose in Köln e. V..
