ReFleece

Made in the US from 95% recycled materials, these are lightweight, fuzzy cases that’s just the thing to protect your expensive gadgets. 

I’m happy to be using a one-of-a-kind case that’s kind to the environment.

What is the ReFleece material?

ReFleece is a new kind of felt.  The outer charcoal grey layer comes from post-industrial recycled fleece scrap.  The inner colored layer comes directly from a recovered fleece jacket, collected through Patagonia’s Common Threads Initiative.   We wash the jackets, then cut them up into squares roughly the size of a case.  The two layers are then put on top of each other and pressed together.  This low energy manufacturing process gives the fleece a new form and a new life.

Is that my old jacket in there?

It is!  Well… it’s somebody’s jacket.  The lining of this case comes straight from jackets recovered through Patagonia’s Common Threads Initiative.  Your fleece jacket is neither re-shredded nor re-melted nor shipped across the ocean to be reprocessed.  We just clean, cut and press it into the lining of the case.

My ReFleece™ Kindle case not only looks good and feels good, but it does a good job protecting against scratches and dust on my Kindle.  The elastic corners are stitched securely and gives my Kindle a snug, safe fit. The case offers a cable port opening for charging. It can also fold all the way back.

ReFleece™ has grouped colors into different colorways for you to choose from. Remember that the lining is made from upcycled jackets, so each case will be unique. My case color fits into the “earth green colorways” category. (the pics I took look more blue than green)

Jennifer at ReFleece™ has news about the Kickstarter campaign: “We are taking back people’s fleece and making custom cases — right out of their own old stuff — for them!” Visit their website to participate.

I received the Kindle case from ReFleece™ to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
