Les Mis fans, enjoy! Shortly after the Bastille fell, the tri-color cockade became the symbol of the French Revolution and later of the Republic. It combined red and blue, the colors of Paris, with the royal color of white.
Red, white and blue striped ribbon on a backing of buckram and felt. Pin back is silver-plated and 1" (2.5 cm) long.
Choose your size - the large rosette is perfect for hats or as a brooch. The small rosette fits on a lapel and is great for children.
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?
