Patrick Australia pioneered the badge making industry in Australia. For over 80-years Patrick Australia have made badges that are now highly sought after collectors items.
The Patrick family business has spent the past 40-years operating out of a factory in North Melbourne, and recently underwent a massive clean out to move to newer premises! With over 80-years of making badges for rock icons, football, politics, royal tours and much more, there’s no surprise some valuable collectors items were found amongst the old presses and files!
Rarely seen since the 1977 Australian tour and featured in ABBA The Movie this button badge box, made right here in North Melbourne was found!
John Patrick, Patrick’s fourth generation badge maker recalls making these badges 40-years ago, when he first started in the family business and has kept a collection of ABBA badges for himself.
