Poppy Brooch - Hand knitted | Just Trade Ethical Jewellery
These poppy crocheted cotton brooches are handmade by the ladies of the Hope Jewellery Project, based in the shanty towns and provinces of Lima, Peru. This project allows women to work part time and from home. They are paid fairly and have flexible working hours, meaning they still have plenty of time to care for their children.
Brooches have plated steel brooch backs.
Dimensions: approx size 5cm x 7.5cm
Packaging: Packed on a Just Trade tent card in a biodegradable cello bag.
Once costs are paid, all proceeds of these handmade knitted poppies will be donated to The Royal British Legion for them to carry out their vital work. That is £5 per poppy.
