Cockades were often used in history to express a political sentiment. But they were also used as an expression of grief if one was in mourning for someone. After President Abraham Lincoln’s unexpected death in 1865, Americans showed their grief publicly by wearing mourning badges, rosettes, ribbons, and buttons.

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?
