About radpatchco

Sales 2,489
On Etsy since 2014

Staying Rad since 2014.

My name is Rachel Alveston, aka Rad Patch Co, and I am a one person operation, based in Merseyside, United Kingdom.

I stock my shop regularly with a variety of found and handcrafted goods - patches, pins, books and more. Every vintage piece listed has been carefully selected by myself and all handcrafted patches have been meticulously embroidered by hand or free-motion embroidered on my trusty Bernina 1008 sewing machine.

By purchasing from Rad, you are supporting the small independent business of an autistic and chronically ill maker. Buying from my shop literally helps put food on my table and keep a roof over my head. I’m forever grateful to my wonderful customers for choosing my shop.

All international orders will be dispatched using Royal Mail’s tracked service, with the exception of orders containing only stickers. These orders will be sent using standard airmail by default. However, if required, tracked delivery for stickers is available for selection at checkout, at an additional charge.

Potential Delivery Delays

Delivery of some orders may be delayed at present. While the postal service is striving to meet delivery aims, this may not always be possible - due to the continued effects of Coronavirus on postal employees and their ways of working.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Jewellery Care Tips

• Please remove your jewellery prior to showering, swimming, etc. Moisture, like water and steam, can tarnish and weaken your jewellery. If you do happen to get your jewellery wet, please dry it thoroughly.
• Chlorine, detergents, cosmetics, hair products and perfumes can are also damaging. Remember, jewellery is the finishing touch to your look, so be sure to put it on last!
• After wear, please wipe your jewellery clean using a soft cloth to remove any potentially damaging substances that it may have picked up.
• Please store your jewellery in a clean, dry place, away from sunlight.

Custom Embroidered Patches

Please email me to enquire about arranging something custom, but please note, I am very selective about which projects I choose to accept. This is due to my chronic illnesses limiting the amount of time and energy I can put into my embroidery. Please do not be offended if I politely decline your request.
