Celebrate patriotism with this cockade from the Founders' era! The style comes directly from the War for Independence, the eagle was designed by George Washington. This cockade is approximately 3" wide.
"All those, who have not had opportunity to sign the address [of Independence], and who feel themselves Independent Americans, cannot hesitate to show by some outward mark, that they love their country better than any other in the world; this mark ought to be the black cockade. The Ladies, we understand, are universally in favor of the measure; and if they lead, who will not follow?”
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?
