Looking for a green solution to show your patriotism? We now offer recycled American flags. They are made with fabric using plastic bottles.
The RePatirot fabric is an eco-friendly polyester material that is 100% manufactured in the USA. This fabric has the look of nylon with the strength of polyester. This fabric holds its colors longer than the traditional nylon flags.
How is a RePatriot flag material made?
The material to construct a RePatirot flag consists of plastic bottles. First, recycled waste (water bottles) is collected. Then the water bottles are chopped, ground, washed, and turned into flake to remove any contaminants. The waste flake is melted and reformulated into high-quality REPREVE resin. The resin is melted into liquid polymer and and extruded to form fiber. From there, it is spun and air-jet textured into yarn. The REPREVE yarn is what makes up the fabric to make RePatirot Flags. The main difference in REPREVE yarn and nylon is that nylon uses polyamides, made from reacting carbon-based chemicals found in coal and petroleum in a high pressure, headed environment. The RePatriot does not use imported oil by-products in its fabric material.
How many bottles does it take to make a flag?
15 water bottles are used to make a standard sized 3’x5’ flag. 18 water bottles are used to make a 4’x6’ flag, 24 water bottles to make a 5’x8’ flag and 36 bottles are used to make a 6’x10’ flag.
The RePatriot carries the same high standards you would expect from our American flags. It has embroidered stars, sewn stripes with a reinforced fly-end, and is made in the USA.
