Yorkshire Badges Project
Yorkshire Badges was launched in 2011.
At the Yorkshire Badges workshop in Sheffield, we’ve been making beautiful Yorkshire gifts since 1975 and take pride in spreading the Yorkshire Rose. Yorkshire Day is naturally the most popular occasion to celebrate ones homeland and it’s no surprise we’ve been known to post the Yorkshire Rose as far a New Zealand, Canada and the Far East! Know a friend far away? Let us know! We would love to send them a friend of Yorkshire badge!
We make all our enamel, gold & silver gifts in the traditional way, meaning each lapel pin, cufflink, bookmark and earring is unique to you. Easily the most sought after token of Yorkshire is without a doubt the traditional Yorkshire Rose Cufflinks. These are most commonly presented as gifts on Yorkshire weddings or as wedding favours to the best man and ushers.
The most iconic emblem of Yorkshire (apart from us and Henderson’s Relish of course), is the white Yorkshire Rose which takes pride of place on the flag. This is different from the Lancaster Rose, which is red from the notorious ‘war of the roses’. However we did find some debate over ‘which way up’ the Yorkshire Rose should go and sought the most definitive answer we could find from the Yorkshire Society.
We feel our original Yorkshire lapel pin captures the essence of Yorkshire. We’re proud to be manufacturing in Sheffield and a 3rd generation family business passing on skills like enamelling, and metal work down the family. There’s this new ‘internet’ thing that didn’t exist when we started in the 70’s, but we’re doing our best to keep the love of Yorkshire alive on our Yorkshire Badges Facebook and Twitter pages!
Yorkshire Badges is part of the House of Logos Group.
