About

Story

My name is Rachel Alveston, aka Rad Patch Co, and I’m a self taught embroidery artist and patch maker, based in the United Kingdom.

I also source vintage patches, pins and paperbacks; and that’s what you’ll find sold here. I do my best to bring you interesting, nostalgic pieces, from the 70s to the 90s, that would be awesome additions to your denim jacket or collection.

A little bit of my history.....

In 2015, I was forced to leave my employment due to chronic illness and disability. The only choice I had left to make a living was to become self employed. I started by selling my own embroidery work and then after a while, I began incorporating my vintage finds into my shop.

Earlier this year (2019), I decided to transform my Etsy shop into a dedicated space for my vintage stock, as I had accumulated so much of it. It didn’t seem fair to my embroidered artwork and handmade patches to be drowned in a sea of deadstock and preloved items. They needed their own platform and can now be found at radpatchco[dot]com.

Buying from my shop literally puts food on my table and keeps a roof over my head. I’m forever grateful to my wonderful customers for choosing my shop.

Thank you.
