If you’re looking for a truly unique accessory to add a touch of flair to that vintage blazer or that new felt hat you bought, then Etsy shop Creative Cockades has the perfect brooch for you. The company is made up of a family of artists who enjoy researching historical cockades and recreating them as modern-day accessories.

Blue, red and black ribbon designs with attached military buttons of gold and brass are showcased proudly in this shop and would look great fastened to any ensemble. The rosettes are also perfect for crafting purposes, like scrapbooking or gift wrapping, and each design features a story on the site about the historical significance of the original ribbon that the replica is modeled after. You’ll want to wear these knots of ribbon from Creative Cockades over and over again like a badge of honor, and for less than $20.00, one of these beautifully crafted showpieces can be yours -- you won’t even have to fight in a war to get it.
