Welcome to SpacePatches

Welcome to Spacepatches.

Space patches are miniature pieces of embroidered artwork. Between them they present a visual history of human spaceflight. Official U.S space mission patches began with Gemini 4.

Collectors clamoured for these souvenirs of the rapidly expanding space race. Patches for earlier flights for both U.S and Soviet Russsian missions were produced. For better or or worse.

A brilliant guide to the U.S.  misssion patches can be found here.

A European based guide to all space mission patches can be found here.

Many of the space patches of the world can be found for sale here at the SPACEBOOSTERS Online Store; and include NASA astronaut and mission patches, ESA mission patches, international spacepatches from most of the space faring nations. As well as the regular mission patches the listings contain some harder to find specials and commemoratives, contractors patches and limited edition collectables. Start your collection today!
