London, Oct 23 (ANI): Keeping in mind well-dressed gentlemen with dangerous lifestyles, an Icelandic designer has created the world’’s first bulletproof handkerchief.

The life-saving accessory is made from Kevlar, which is five times stronger than steel.

It sits in the breast pocket in order to “protect the heart of men”, reports the Telegraph.

The material, which is used to make protective vests and Formula 1 cars, can withstand a bullet as well as temperatures of up to around 400 degrees centigrade.

Only ten of the stylish handkerchiefs are currently available, all in a tasteful yellow and bordered with either raw golden silk or citric French cotton.

The handkerchiefs cost around 94 pounds, but the designer, Sluli Recht, emphasises that he takes “no responsibility for schmucks and wooden-heads who feel compelled to test the endurance or resistance of the textile in any way”. (ANI)
