Badge your brand.

The smallest details can speak volumes in fashion. Badges, also known as patches, come in different shapes and forms and are such details that add a unique character to your garments. They are expressions of identity, individuality, and style. At Trimco Group, we understand this power and offer a vast selection of materials and crafting techniques, enabling your brand to choose badges or patches that align seamlessly with your brand identity. Whether you prefer low-impact materials with recycled content, the artistry of embroidered designs, the vibrant allure of colorful silicone, or the rugged aesthetic of denim patches, our product range is designed to cater to your specific needs and preferences.

Material Choices — At Trimco Group, we emphasize sustainability and strive to use low-impact materials. We focus on recyclable materials and minimizing the use of PU and plastic.

Amongst our preferred choices for badges or patches are FSC®-certified jacron, and woven recycled polyester grounds with details like print and embroidery.

We make badges from low-impact materials such as pineapple leaves, eggshells, coffee grounds, apples, and cactus. These badges have gained popularity as they resemble leather but are PU reduced.

We also offer badges made from other materials, including:

  • Real or recycled leather.
  • Biobased materials with a biobased mass content from 40 – 100 %
  • Recycled materials: recycled silicone, recycled felt, recycled TPU, microfiber
  • Embroidery in recycled polyester or cotton


Why we have a special love for badges:

Broad Applications of Badges / Patches

Badges or patches are not limited to one type of apparel. They can be incorporated into various clothing styles, from outdoor and activewear to denim and contemporary and even formal attire. The versatility of badges makes them a popular choice for brands.

Customization for your brand and end-consumers

Customization offers a unique opportunity for customers to express their individuality and style. Many brands allow their customers to personalize their garments with badges of their choice. With our extensive range of badge designs, your customers can create apiece of clothing that truly represents them.

The functional purpose of patches

In line with the principles of the circular economy, patches can serve a functional purpose beyond aesthetics. Brands can use our patches for repair purposes, breathing new life into worn-out garments.

Enhancing badges with tech — Whether it is product authentication, circular initiatives or any other projects, badges are a great environment to combine with tech elements. NFC tags can be successfully hidden on the backside of badges, and end-consumers can get access to information about traceability, options at the garment’s end of life, or loyalty programs through a simple tap. QR codes can be chosen to be printed for scanning and accessing the same information, but the choice of material is important for the applicability and durability of the QR code print.

Placements and uses of badges/patches — Beyond brand identification, badges and patches tell a brand's story, they are the intricate details on garments. Strategically placed, they draw attention to design elements, enhancing the overall look and feel of the garment. Depending on their purpose, badges or patches are extremely versatile and can reinforce the overall purpose and design of garment.
