Mulit-Piece Leather Patches
Here at Split-S, our passion is reproducing World War II multi-piece leather patches. This is the type of patch most commonly seen sewn to the jackets of our servicemen who served in the China-Burma-India/Pacific Theater of Operations. The patches were made by stitching together multiple painted and dyed pieces of leather to form the desired unit insignia. Our reproductions are custom made by hand from natural vegetable tanned leathers, and only quality paints, dyes, stains, and finishes specifically made for working with leather are used in their construction. Since each patch is hand made, no two are alike. The colors, textures, and stitching may slightly vary from one to another, making each a unique work of art.
The pricing for multi-piece leather patches is based on size and difficulty. We do not stock any of the patches shown on our site; all patches are custom made to order. Have a patch you would like reproduced? Please email us, and we will gladly quote you a price!

Multi-Piece Leather Flag Patches
The proper way to display the U.S. Flag (today) is to keep the blue field in the highest position of honor. When wearing the U.S. Flag on a jacket sleeve, the highest position of honor would be to have the blue field facing forward as charging into battle. For this reason, our flags are custom made for wear on the right or left sleeve.
The patch borders can be made in seal brown, medium brown, russet brown, black, or pretty much any color of your choice.
