RCMP Shabrack Pillowcases
Many know the famous badge of the RCMP that contains the buffalo head in the center and the motto `Maintains le Droit’ (Maintain the Right). Fewer know that the official brand of the RCMP is "MP" fused together and this brand with a Crown over top is the badge used on the saddleblanket, or shabrack as used by the RCMP and the RCMP Musical Ride. Of note this brand was first registered in 1887. The term shabrack comes from the Turkish word `Shabraque’ and refers to a saddlecloth formerly used by European light cavalry. The shabraque was an accoutrement of the hussar cavalry, based on the Hungarian horsemen in Austrian service who were widely imitated in European armies in the 18th and 19th centuries.
As a special tribute to the RCMP and their Musical Ride this special pillow case was created. Easy to ship and transport, and a great addition to a family room or ‘person’ cave, it is easily completed by purchasing a standard 18” X 18” pillow which fits in the back and sealed by a Velcro closure.
