The Robin Hood Springtime Festival opens in just two days, you guys! In celebration, our theme for this Thursday will be a medieval one.
Lion Rampant Patch
This patch features one of the most popular medieval heraldic devices – a lion rampant. We’ve stitched the lion in gold with a red tongue on a black field. Or, to put that properly in the language of heraldry: Sable, lion rampant or, langue gules.
We’ve made this design is available in two sizes – our standard small shield patch, or in a large size patch suitable for the back of a jacket, or for the front of a knight’s surcoat.
Of course, every knight needs a great leader, which leads us to…
Richard III Patch
Alright, maybe he was only a good leader. Well, he was okay. Sadly, in the end, Richard III was killed in battle, his body dragged off and buried by his enemies who knows where.
Wait, we DO know where! Under a car park, recently discovered, identified, and re-interred with respect at Leicester Cathedral.
You can still buy our No Parkyng patch even though he’s no longer there, though. because let’s be honest – it’s just funny.
You can also purchase the design in our Redbubble shop, available on a variety of products from t-shirts to stickers to travel mugs.
Okay, technically this design is Tudor, and not medieval. But since it was Henry VII who defeated Richard III and adopted this as his house sigil, it seems like a pretty fine line to me.
Our embroidered Tudor Rose is available as a patch, on a scarf, or on any of our messenger size bags, so it really gets around. You know — like Henry VIII did.
It’s also available in our Redbubble shop on — you guessed it! — a wide variety of products.
We will have all of these designs – and so much more! – available for sale at the Robin Hood Springtime Festival. The show runs for three weekends, so if you’re in the area, stop on by!
