Many of you know that my husband is an avid runner. And you runners out there know that road races are good for a t-shirt apiece. So, over the years he has collected dozens of race t-shirts. I have always wanted to turn these t-shirts into a blanket, but I have never found a reasonably-priced option (we’re talking several hundred dollars for anything of appreciable size). Until Project Repat! Project Repat is based out of an awesome accelerator (Space With a Soul) and they share space with my husband’s company, Hands On Tech Boston, which is how we so fortunately stumbled upon them. From what we can tell, they are really on to something. 15,000 customers have already trusted them to transform a pile of sentimental t-shirts into an awesome keepsake.
In their own words: T-shirts are intimate. They’re personal. They’re like old friends, and they tell the story of a special time and place in your life, or the life of someone you love. You wouldn’t hide your old friends in a drawer, would you? (Hope not.) We’re here to give your t-shirts new life! So pull out your beloved tees and let us create a one-of-a-kind t-shirt blanket that you’ll treasure forever.
Their blankets are made in the U.S. by companies committed to socially responsible manufacturing and they are less than half the price of blankets offered by other companies. You can choose to design the layout of your blanket yourself, or let the experts at Project Repat do it for you. Click here to get started! ($$-$$$$)
