Upcycled T-Shirt Blankets
Project Repat Lets You Literally Wrap Yourself in Memories

“Make new friends but keep the old” could pretty much be the mantra that you repeat as you order these upcycled custom blankets by Project Repat. Project Repat takes in the t-shirts you love, but would never want to wear again and converts them into new blankets. They’re available now at Designed Good, which is telling the story of Project Repat’s mission on its website.

Upcycling is a worthy cause in itself, but Designed Good is also highlighting its other ethical edge: fair wage manufacturing in the USA. Project Repat works with NuPath, a company that employs disabled adults, and Opportunity Threads, which actually gives all workers a percentage of the company, both of which operate within the United States.

These upcycled custom blankets are not just cool, they’re a solution to the graveyard of shirts in your closet, a way to support fair labor companies and a quick and easy way to get warm in a meaningful way.
