Lustrous satin ribbon, reproduction Union military button, hand-sewn onto period-correct buckram. Approximately 2.5" (6 cm) across rosette. Pin on back is silver-plated and 1" (2.5 cm) wide.

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?
