Kia ora, my name's Doug. I started Doug's, what used to be called Tsuika Patches.
We've still got the same great products, just adding some sparkly new services under a new name.
I've changed the name to encompass a few changes. The first is that we're not just making patches anymore. We now offer custom embroidery - directly onto tees, bags and hats. We've done this for a while, but now it'll be a core service.
Even better, we now offer custom merchandise made from second-hand blanks. This is something we've done for our good friends at Crushes for a while, but want to offer to others. Whether it's for your pop-up art project, your band merch, or your shop uniforms, you can have the lowest impact clothing possible. We're continuously sourcing blanks from all over the country - so you don't have to. But we can embroider your own blanks too! On top of that, every item is different to the last - making the clothing even more special.
We're also making custom branded patches for people too. This means it's all packaged up in a little compostable pouch, with another brand slapped next to ours.
We're also releasing new products... like organic cotton pins! They'll be made with nice little brass clasps. They will be coming in the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled. Another new product will be our own tees & clothing, made from second-hand blanks & embroidered by me (Doug).
So nau mai, Doug's. Welcome to the age of sustainable merchandise, uniforms and embroidery.
