Poppy crocheted brooch - Fair Trade

For many, the poppy symbolizes the great losses suffered during the First World War. Our poppy brooch is made by the Zoe Project, which provides training and fairly paid work for women living in some of the poorest shanty towns of Lima, Peru. The brooch is handmade and includes a fixing clasp, making it a unique piece that carries the essence of remembrance.

Proceeds from purchases of the Poppy Brooch support the museum's work, ensuring that the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice lives on. The scarlet corn poppy was a common flower on the Western Front, as it was one of the few plants to grow on the battlefields. The significance of the poppy as a lasting memorial symbol for the fallen, originating from the poem 'In Flanders Field' by John McCrae in 1915, is beautifully captured in the craftsmanship of our brooch. Wearing poppy badges, like our handmade brooch, serves as a tangible reminder to honor and remember their sacrifice.
