Smile through Tears / Handkerchief

Smile through Tears
Smile through Tears

“Smile through Tears” is a kind of handkerchief design which can turn tears to smile. When the tears meet the handkerchief, a special image-display technology will reveal a smiling face within this part. It just cost several seconds to complete the process. While you want to console someone in sadness, you can hand over her (him) this handkerchief. When the user looks at the handkerchief casually, she (he) will see a lovely smiling face on it. Such a romantic way will be able to make your bad mode turn good. When the tears become dry, the smiling face will fade off gradually.
