These patches are chain stitched on sturdy yet flexible scrim felt. They can be hand stitched on jackets, shirts and more. Each one is truly one of a kind due to the nature of the 1933 chain stitch machine. Some have hand stitching over top for the smallest of details. Unlike today’s electronically made patches, these are made by hand. With the press of a pedal and the turn of a rotating handle, Paris creates each line and fill tediously.
