More informations ?
Young girls in love used to embroider their handkerchief and give it to their beloved. The embroidery featured traditional motifs as well as verses illustrating the girl's interest in the boy. If the boy who received the "Lenço de Namorados" wore it in public, he showed that he wanted to start a relationship.
