ClytemnestrasCloset's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Clytemnestra's Closet! Come browse through for a delightful selection of handmade Victorian and French inspired millinery Cocardes, flowers and other accessories.

Cocardes are fanciful ribbon embellishments designed for hats and fashions popular in Victorian times through the 1920's, they were even used by the military to adorn uniforms. Cocarde or Coquarde is French for cockscomb - a very befitting name indeed.
Each Cocarde is based on an original Victorian design, many of these are crafted of real vintage ribbon and buttons, every creation hand folded by my own patient fingers.

Need a certain color or size? Please feel free to contact me for custom orders, it would be my pleasure to create a special item for you!

Please note that hats, clothing and handbags are used as props to show how the cocardes can be worn and are not part of the listing.

I am happy to ship internationally, please contact me for a shipping quote to your location if not already listed.
