Badges no longer have to be a thing just for members of the military and scouts — who said we don't all love them? Check out these embroidered merit badges from Coral & Tusk; they're awesome accents for an fun outfit or a backpack in need of an accessory.
Coral & Tusk is the product of Stephanie Housley, a New York textile designer. She pulls inspiration from her yearly months-long visits to India where she designs her textile collections — then brings home the goods to the United States!
The Merit Badge collection features wool and rayon felt with embroidery. A steel pin is attached to the backside so you can affix the badge to anything of your desire. The embroidered animals have a great vintage outdoor scout-sy look to them, with classic muted tones and simple lines. A badge is a great way to congratulate someone for awesome school accomplishments, birthday surprises, or just to say you're proud of them.
The badges measure approximately 2" by 4", and come in a variety of animal choices. Badger, bison, bear, and ram — which one will your little one choose?
You can purchase the whole collection if making tough decisions just isn't your thing. You can purchase an animal badge for $12 from sweet william.
