Jackson, WY – Noso Patches is pleased to announce two new partnerships with major outdoor clothing companies committed to sustainability. Noso provided trusted workwear company Dickies with seven custom-designed fabric patches to celebrate Dickies’ current sustainability initiatives. Arcteryx worked with Noso to design two new custom patches to celebrate the opening of 11 new Arcteryx stores in North America.


Noso founder Kelli Jones says her growing list of custom patch clients shows a growing awareness of the need for sustainability. “These huge brands are excited to work with us,” Jones said. “It makes me excited for the future. I’m looking forward to getting a call from other leaders in the outdoor apparel world like Patagonia and North Face.”

When Jones met Cindy Hefner, the show coordinator / co-op trade support manager for Dickies, Hefner hadn’t seen anything like Noso patches before. “Cindy was really jazzed to create cool items to give to customers at trade shows and events,” Jones said. Noso worked with Dickies to convert their original designs into patches. Noso can match up to 1300 Pantone colors, giving clients a full range of possibilities.

Hefner said, “These patches were a great hit when we gave them to all our visitors that visited our activation trailer at the new Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. We have the SEMA show in early November, and we’ll be handing them out there as well.”

Arcteryx reached out to Jones directly, seeking her guidance in creating a patch specially designed for the launch of 11 new North American stores. “That’s a special place to take in the unveiling of new stores,” Jones said. “We are thrilled to be part of it.” 



Noso Patches are the most unique all-purpose patches that fix rips, snags and tears while adding personal style. Make your jacket eye catching, not for the holes, but for the design you’ve created. Personalize your gear like sleeping bags, tents, or the apparel you love most. Whether it’s a nylon windbreaker or down jackets, anything can be revamped or restored.

When your favorite jacket springs a leak, Noso Patches save the day with style and versatility. Super easy to use at home or in the field, Noso Patches are made of 30D ripstop nylon, uncoated and down proof with a high tenacity and heat/light inhibiting qualities. Noso’s adhesive lasts longer than others on the market. With no sewing required, the heat activated technology creates a permanent bond without an iron. Just throw it in the dryer or better yet, leave it in the sun to activate the adhesive. Noso Patches are incredibly durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions and multiple washes, without gumming up on the sides.

Founder Kelli Jones came up with the idea after she hopped a barbed wire fence hunting in Wyoming and snagged her brand-new jacket. Instead of repairing it with tape, Kelli used her own heart shaped patch she cut from nylon. After numerous friends asked where they could get one, she decided to make Noso Patches available to everyone. To extend the life of your gear, or express your individuality, Noso Patches are available in nine different colors, twenty-one shapes and nine variety packages of three. They are available for purchase at and retailers in North America.

Custom patches are now available too, and we can match up to 1,300 Pantone colors.
