Project Repat gives excess clothing second life, preserving T-shirt memories and creating living wage jobs for American workers–including those with disabilities–in the process. The business collects T-shirts from various sources and repurposes them into functional accessories for real people, such as blankets. Customers enjoy upcycled products that lack nothing in the comfort department: blankets, for instance, are backed with high-quality, USA-made Polar-Tec fleece.
