These Luftwaffe smock Eagles are made to be easily sewn on smocks by hand and machine. These eagles are machine embroidered using a light grey thread on our own Green flecked smock Cotton.
This breast eagle variant is the correct insignia as worn on all type II Fallschirmjäger jump smocks, as it is embroidered on authentic grünmeliert fabric, copied from originals in our collection. This variant of smock was also observed on Luftwaffe field division jackets.
Due to the fraying properties of cotton, we have left an extra bit of border around the edges. These can be simply trimmed down if needed before attaching. Zig-Zag Stitching is recommended to secure the edges and avoid fraying during wear and wash.
