Little Flags Of Awesome - Designers Go Retro for The People's Pennant.
Elevating the classic pennant from sports memorabilia to a celebration of the everyday - that's the concept behind The People's Pennant.
Launched in March of 2012, the Pennant People (Jessica, Tim and Eric of Greenpoint, Brookyln) enlist various graphic designers, typographers and illustrators to create a different wool felt blend pennant that is then sewn and printed by hand. Made in a limited quantity of 250 each, the pennants measure 12" x 30". And at only $25 a piece, they are fun decor for everything from dorm rooms to offices.
As of now, they have 8 beautiful pennants available for purchase, all shown below.
