|Usage||For Garry to wipe blood off of his wounded hand (Promise of Reunion)|
|“||Oh! Do you have your handkerchief? You know, the one you got for your birthday? Keep it safe in your pocket, okay? Don't lose it!||”|
— Ib's Mother
The Lace Handkerchief is an item in the game Ib. It was given to Ib by her mother on her 9th birthday and has Ib's name inscribed on it. It can only be used when Garry cuts his hand on glass after burning down Mary's painting. The option for it is only available if Ib's bond with Garry is high enough.
When Ib jumps through the Fabricated World painting to return to her own world and meets up with Garry at the Rose Sculpture, he has forgotten everything that has happened to them; and when he finds the handkerchief in his pocket, he remembers Ib's name, as well as their adventure together. He does not give back the handkerchief because it is stained with his blood. By keeping the handkerchief and planning to clean it to return it to her at a later time, he promises that they'll meet again.
- Ib's handkerchief is the item that helps Garry to remember Ib.
- The handkerchief had been handmade from a jewelry shop, made especially for Ib as requested by her mother.
