An original, sweet and moving invention of the Minho people, the “love-kerchiefs” became popular in the 19th century. They are embroidered by hand by a girl, who offers it to the boy who charmed her, as a love letter that he can wear around his neck. But because most girls were poorly educated at the time, they are filled with spelling mistakes. Now, as in the old days, a “love-kerchief” remains a unique and precious gift. They can be made to measure, so you can send your rhyme to order it from A Vida Portuguesa.
