Embroidered patches are not just for the uniformed civil service worker, karate enthusiast, or military officer. Patches have always been part collectable art, part accessory. And while the process by which embroidered patches are produced has evolved, they remain popular for the same reasons.
Speaking of Art…
Some might say that art is their child’s crayon-scratched creation. To another, art is the works of brilliant painters from centuries past, including Da Vinci, Picasso and Monet. Still another might say that art exists in nature. It’s the evening sun, the midnight moon, and all the flowers in a garden.
According to Frank Lloyd Wright, “Art is a discovery and development of principles of nature into beautiful forms suitable for human use.”
In The Soul of Man Under Socialism, Oscar Wilde wrote, “Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.”
No matter how you define it, art is definitely an influence that might have also provided an outlet for you as it has for so many others. Art adds richness to our lives. It stimulates our thinking, evokes emotion, and inspires us for better or worse. One might say that art makes life more interesting, and helps us discover meaning as we see our world in varied strokes and structures. Whether you create or merely admire art, it’s likely made you a more urbane or well-rounded individual.
Art is Everywhere!
Our world consists of art in its many and diverse forms. You don’t have to tour a museum to gaze at a masterpiece. Just take a look around you at any given time and you will see something aesthetically pleasing. Art is subjective. It is fashion. It’s furniture. It’s your desk and that logoed coffee mug that sits upon it. Art is everywhere!
Patches are a common art form, and they’ve been regarded as such for centuries. The earliest patches were created with much toil and skill, using a tedious stitch-by-stitch process. Like modern patches, the patches of old symbolized achievements, events, places traveled, and important people. They were prized gifts and souvenirs.
The process of patch making advanced with the introduction of computerized embroidery machines. Today’s patches are as much an art form as they ever were, and now they’re more accessible. Detailed custom patches are easy to acquire!
