THE PATCH TREND


During the last few seasons, patches can be found everywhere: on jeans, jackets, bags and even shoes. No wonder they managed to gain such widespread popularity. You can not only revive your old garments by customizing them with patches, but also personalize newly acquired ones. Patches are a truly magic tool for self-expression, that’s why they were so loved by hippies, scouts, punks, bikers and other representatives of different subcultures and movements. They can symbolize a rebellious spirit, individualism or be the demonstration of non-conformism.

If we look back in history, patches trace their roots thousands of years ago to ancient cultures of the Mediterranean, Mideast, China, India and South America, where the art of decorating fabric with thread stitching originated. In modern form, they are used by military organizations and other uniformed personnel, such as delivery men, factory workers, police and fire departments to name a few.

At present, patches are no longer perceived only as part of uniform. They are a new type of accessories, which can be easily worn, unlike massive earrings and necklaces. Perhaps the most essential advantage of patches is that your own one-of-a-kind piece can be created without any sewing skills thanks to iron-on transfer technology.

Besides, they definitely strike a nostalgic cord and resonate with all snappy dressers, since 70s and 80s are still on-trend. In short, patches will appeal not only to fashion killers, but also to those with a good sense of humor and fun-loving nature.
