Stitchy and Patchy

Patch up with a range of patches from 90’s to current Australian party crew logo’s to geometric motives and emblems of political activism.

Patches have always been a great way to individualise clothing, not only to fix a hole in an elbow of your favorite jumper but to totally revamp an old garment.

As a teenager I had one of those old denim jackets with all my fave heavy metal bands on them which soon morphed into Punk, Hip Hop and Anarchy patches/screen prints as I became inspired and radicalised by UK’s mid 80’s festival culture. Putting them on my clothing recently flashed me back to that moment.

Patch’s allow multiple points of view, affiliations and ideas to be juxtaposed on any jacket or bag and give that item a uniqueness.

So Patch up with Stitchy and Patchy, so far there are 2 collections but soon they’ll be lots as the collection of hand printed patches grows and evolves. Also badges will be added to the collection soon.

These patches have party been inspired by a film I put together called Do It Ourselves Culture released in 2016 that celebrates Sydney’s party and protest community uprisings since the early 90’s. Each collection of 6 patches mail ordered gets a free Do It Ourselves Culture patch.

The patch collections include designs from crews and happenings I have been associated with, its not meant to be a definite collection, far from it.  I’m open to suggestions for other patches that might be included in this collection. I can offer a royalty to crews by giving them patches if they think a patch of their crew would be popular on this page. I’m into keeping it representing conscious crews or bands who priority was/is not commercial. The colour of the fabric and screen print colours may vary from the photo’s of the collections. The 50c shows the size of the patches.
