Personal Accessories | Patch NYC Scarves
Designers Don Carney and John Ross established PATCH NYC with a collection of hand-detailed hats in the fall of 1997. Inspired by a hat made by John’s mom Yasuko for her son’s first New York winter, the designers created a collection using hand-dyed wool from the Union Square Farmers market and vintage buttons for embellishment.
Encouraged by the success of their hat collection, the designers added fabric scarves and special occasion handbags the following year. An appreciation of vintage embroidery, applique and beading techniques motivated the pair to embellish their designs with intricate details inspired by items found at the New York flea market. This attention to detail combined with an unpredictable color palette quickly became PATCH NYC design signatures. Today, PATCH NYC has evolved into a lifestyle studio creating original art and designing collections of home decor and fashion accessories.
