Own a souvenir from our upcoming 'Canada Modern' window installation for this year's DesignTO festival with this set of 2 traditional Hard Enamel cloisonné Lapel Pins. Each is made by stamping a sheet of nickel-plated brass to create a raised outline of the design. The recessed areas are then filled with a black powdered resin and fired to 1700 degrees, giving each cloisonné pin a jewel-like quality.
Each pin comes attached to a special backing card with a butterfly clasp. The cards are made from duplexed Colorplan (540 gsm / 365 lb) by GF Smith and printed in black and red ink on Pristine White and white ink on Bright Red.
Also available are 4 unique tote bags, each with a unique historic logo. Part of the proceeds from sales will go to Canada Modern, an initiative preserving and celebrating Canada's modernist graphic design heritage.
Due to the current lockdown in Toronto, this installation has been postponed to a later date. Please check back for updates.
