Tammis Keefe

Who Belongs to Whom?

My mom got me the completely awesome book Handkerchiefs: A Collector’s Guide for my birthday. The most prolific and well-known designer in the handkerchief world appears to be Tammis Keefe.

She sometimes went under the pseudonym Peg Thomas, but I don’t know why — maybe to flout some contractual obligations.
