New Erstwilder Poppies for Remembrance Day

The Poppy Field brooch, ever since it’s launch in February 2012, has been one of our most endearing and enduring designs.

Our original Poppy Field design came about, not with any intention of association with the RSL, but simply because we love flowers and wanted to design a simple yet striking brooch that would help brighten people’s days. And when we saw the wonderful and humbling pictures of Erstwildians wearing our very own poppy to pay their respects, we knew that it was something wanted to support.

In recent years, due to popular demand as well as our absolute reverence for those who serve in the defence of our nation and in the name of peace across the world, we have released new Poppy Field designs twice annually: in early March to pay respect to our ANZAC heroes, and again in early November to commemorate Remembrance day.

This November we have made the decision, once again due to the feedback we have from yourselves on Instagram and Facebook, to release not one but three new Poppy Field designs: a traditional red poppy as a mark of respect for those brave men and women who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms to which we have become accustomed, a purple poppy to celebrate the contributions made by our animal allies in times of war, and a white poppy as a complement to the red poppy and reminder that the ultimate aim of our participation in any conflict is peace and harmony across all mankind.

Erstwilder is 100% committed to these Emblems of Remembrance and the causes they represent. To each and every one of the brave souls, those who laid down their life in the name of the sacred cause fought in Flanders’ Fields during World War one and those who have served since, we simply say this: thank you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

We do encourage you to continue to support the Returned & Services League, Australian War Animal Memorial Organisation and Peace Pledge Union by purchasing pins and cloth poppies. And we’re doing our part too. For every Poppy Field brooch (all colours) purchased from during the month of November, Erstwilder will donate $2 to RSL Victoria.

Beautifully Made

This was my first delve into the creative world of Erstwilder and I have to say, what a beautiful experience it was! My brooch is stunning - well made, vibrant, realistic and unique. I’ve decided as much as I love it, my gorgeous Aunt who I haven’t seen in a really long time would love it more so I’ve decided to gift it. Thanks for a really wonderful experience! I’ll be back!

Take A Break Earrings

I ordered a pair of Hello Kitty ‘Take A Break’ Earrings for my daughters birthday. I ordered them a few weeks in advance expecting postage would be slow. To my pleasant surprised they turned up the following day, gift wrapped in a gorgeous box and tissue paper with a hand written note. The earrings themselves were so cute and such good quality. I love them and will definitely be ordering from Erstwilder again.

Love my wearable art

Very happy with my lovely pieces for my first Erstwilder experience. The individual boxes are great quality and will help look after each piece for their life. I think they the perfect size, not too bulky and heavy. My only criticism would be the little latch on the brooch fitting is a bit loose and the brooch has fallen off a couple of times. I worry that it might get damaged if it falls on hard ground.
