Going Global Small Vintage Kuchi Patches
1.45 2.95 $1.45 - $2.95
Ever since I found them, I haven't been able to get enough of these fabulous vintage Kuchi patches from Afghanistan. These are handmade pieces meant to embellish clothes and accessories and come in many shapes and styles. With so many options, you're sure to find the perfect embellishment for your mixed media artwork, crafts, and more!
Each of these fantastic Kuchi patches measures between about 2" and 3" in diameter. Every patch is handmade and as vintage items, there's some wear and tear - you can expect a few loose threads, missing beads, etc... I've made sure that any patches with extensive damage have been held back, but I quite enjoy the character that these well loved pieces bring to my mixed media artwork. Try using one in the center of a small panel, as an accent on the cover of an art journal, or even use them to embellish fashion accessories!

In this 18"x18" boho mixed media canvas, you can see how I've used a large Kuchi patch as the focal point of the piece, as well as the basis for the color scheme and the overall mood of the artwork.
Here you can see how I used a small Kuchi patch as the centerpiece of the cover of my handmade art journal. It ties in beautifully with all of the seed beads in the background.
