Wear a piece of Canadian (and Ottawa) history!
The copper used for the maple leaf is the original copper which covered the roofs of Canada's Parliament Buildings from 1918 to 1996. Wear it proudly on your lapel or backpack. Measures approx. 3 cm.
This brooch is available on gold plated or pewter backing.
As these are handmade and made from recycled roofing, unique marks will appear on the copper of each pin.
Because this item is handcrafted, slight variations are to be expected and admired.
Made by Under One Roof - a social enterprise in Ottawa, Ontario. Every item was crafted with the participation of persons with developmental disabilities.
