Project Repat T-Shirt Quilt Review


I recently realized that it was pointless to keep a drawer full of t-shirts that I would most likely not be wearing again. These t-shirts had meaning, but were either old and holey, no longer relevant, or I just couldn’t see myself wearing again; however, they were not t-shirts I wished to throw away or donate. Then I discovered Project Repat.

Nathan Rothstein and Ross Lohr founded Project Repat, and more than 25,000 customers have trusted Project Repat to preserve their t-shirt memories. A Project Repat quilt is like a new form of scrapbooking!

“Repat is short for repatriating textile jobs back to the USA. We used to make t-shirts in the US, but since the early 90s, big companies have chased cheap labor and lax regulations overseas, where they pay their workers less than a living wage. We want to turn all those t-shirts that were made overseas, into fair wage jobs here in the USA.”


Quilts are available in lap size, twin size, full size, queen size, and king size. Each size includes sides of shirts from 12 shirts to 64 shirts. A side of your shirt is either the front or the back of the shirt. If your shirt has writing on the front and the back, you can use either one or both sides of your shirt. I chose the smallest blanket, the lap size, which includes 12 sides. Only one of my shirts had two sides and I only wanted to include the back of it, so for that one I had to cut it in half and only send the side I wanted used. All the rest could be sent without cutting them at all.


Once your order your quilt, you will be sent instructions and a mailing envelope. If you want to design your own quilt (the cheaper option) you must lay your t-shirts out in the pattern in which you want them and take a photo to send in with your t-shirts. My t-shirts didn’t fit in the enclosed mailing envelope, so I ended up using a priority mailing box. The cost of shipping your shirts to Project Repat is an additional cost on top of the cost of the quilt and the return shipping to you.

When you order, you choose what color backing you want on your quilt. My finished quilt has arrived! (It took two weeks after I sent in my shirts):

I love it! Here are the shirts I used, from top to bottom, left to right: Hard Rock CafĂ© Tel Aviv, “In Training” Mickey Mouse shirt which I wore for my 3 5Ks and 1 10K while I was training for my half marathon, Scorpio description, Rutgers Knight, tie dye by me, Just Maui’d shirt from our Hawaii honeymoon, Alcatraz Triathlon, Scotties, Little Mermaid “It’s My Birthday” that I wore for the half marathon, Mickey Mouse shirt that was too small for me, Grumpy, and Hebrew University.

I am looking forward to cuddling up with this quilt! Want one? You can get 15% off with the code “repatfriend”!

I received this quilt in exchange for a blog post. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

This would be a great idea for some of Kevin's older t-shirts that had different sayings on them that he no longer wears. Got to try to check this out soon! Thanks, Dara :)

I LOVE it!! I've always wanted one of these. I got rid of my sorority shirts from college, so I've considered using some Army shirts. I'd also love to make one with some of the girls' old clothes. Super cute!
