Backstaff & Snake Patch

Regular price $9.00 Sale

Our patch was inspired by John Davis's 1590 backstaff. A navigational instrument used to measure the altitude of a celestial body, such as the Sun or Moon. When measuring the sun, it would be placed at one's back; thus the backstaff.

And those three dashes _ _ _ Morse Code.

Woven Backstaff & Snake patch with embroidered edge and hook-back adhesion.
