Project Repat has been turning T-shirts into lifelong memories since 2012 all because of an idea out of Nairobi Kenya.
Co-Founder Ross Lohr was there doing non-profit education work when he realized how many Kenyans were wearing t-shirt’s from donations likely made in the United States and sold off to other countries.
Amazed by the amount of t-shirts sold off and sent overseas, he and his partner came up with a few ways to help non-profits in East Africa and Americans and their t-shirts too. On a mission to bring back textile jobs gone overseas, Project Repat takes your old t-shirts and turns them into quilts that you can keep forever.
The process is simple and people of all ages have taken part.
