Penannular Plaid Brooches

Penannular Plaid Brooches are traditional fastening for Great Kilt, Ancient Kilts, Fly Plaids and Earasaids.

These brooches form of a ring with a small opening that a pin fits through. You use this pin by poking it through the fabric of whatever you’re using the brooch for, or by weaving the fabric around the pin. Lastly, you twist the pin away from the opening and settle it in place. Penannular plaid brooches became popular in the Celtic world at least as far back as 600 AD. In the Viking era, these were made from bronze, iron, silver, and gold. Today they are still a popular choice.
