In the latter half of the 19th century, the city of Richmond was a patchwork of territories fiercely protected by roving gangs of young children. From the tony streets of Shockoe Hill to the slaughterhouse district of Butchertown, these little hooligans took great pride representing their neighborhoods, and now you can too. 

Based on the very real names and histories of the Boy Gangs of Old Richmond, this series of patches reimagines the gangs in vintage mascot style. These original designs are created and embroidered right here in the hallowed streets of the Capitol City.
