Secessionists during the American Civil War generally wore cockades that were solid blue, solid red, or red-and-white. Center emblems included stars, spangles, military buttons, tintype buttons of famous people and products of the South such as cotton, palmetto and pine cones.
People in the past wore a cockade to tell a story about themselves. I love researching what those stories were and why people wanted to tell them. People today have stories to tell too, so that's what motivates me to keep making cockades! What's your story and how can I help you tell it better?
