    The Winky&Dutch Safety Pin Brooch: A Subtle Statement Of Solidarity in The Pro-Kindness/Anti-Hate Movement



    The Winky&Dutch
    Safety Pin Brooch

    Anarchy Safety Pin $14.99

    In 1849 Walter Hunt was granted a patent for what we now know as the safety pin, but ancestors of todays safety pin date back as far as the Middle Bronze Age in the Second Millennium. While necessity drove the invention of the safety pin, it was inspiration from the punk movement and designers as diverse as Vivienne Westwood, Versace & Steven Sprouse who used the safety pin as a symbol of solidarity.  As a symbol the safety pin has represented everything from friendship to saying "fuck you" to "the establishment".

    Winky&Dutch has seen the importance of and utilized the safety pin many times throughout the years in our collections. While we have a not so secret love, for all things seditious and a healthy respect, for waving a specific finger at rules & boundaries, we DO wholeheartedly support, believe in, and actively practice what the safety pin has currently come to represent. Stand with us against hate!

     

    We consider the pin a public display of solidarity in the emerging Pro-Kindness/Anti-Hate movement.  We will stand with those who are like minded and be an ally, a protector of sorts, for those who are vulnerable via our presence or taking action.
