About the Lenços dos Namorados

Inspired by the traditional Viana embroidery, which pays tribute to the young couples that secretly embroidered a handkerchief with messages of love during an era when modesty was enforced strictly, and couples couldn’t show any display of affection until marriage.
Lenços dos Namorados” (Sweetheart Handkerchiefs) are handkerchiefs made of linen or cotton and embroidered with several related love patterns. This piece of handcraft is part of the typical clothing from Minho province (in Northern Portugal) and used by women of marrying age.
The heart is one of the most popular motifs along with the 3 or 4 leaf clover, which appears in heart shapes, usually depicted in red, blue or white. Flowers, camelias, carnations and stars complement the exquisitely beautiful embroidery.
