An embroidered fabric patch in gold tread based upon the Uppåkra bird brooch, Sweden.
Birds were a common motif in the Vendel and Viking Ages and can be found on a variety of objects from the periods, and brooches in one of them.
This is however made with a modern twist - as a fabric patch.
The backside is covered with a material so you can iron on the patch, but sewing works just as well.
The patch measures 11 x 4 cm.
