20 Wonderful Embroidered Silk Christmas Postcards From World War I

Embroidered silk postcards made soldiers at the Western Front and sent to their families back home, for Christmas. These kinds of embroidered postcards were very popular among soldiers of World War I, and were made in large numbers by French and Belgian women during the conflict.

The Australian War Memorial collection holds over 600 postcards. The themes are mostly floral and/or patriotic, their reassuring prettiness belying the conditions lived by the men who sent them.
