Festival season is in full swing, and most of us attending these events enjoy the opportunity to express our creativity and personality in ways that are far less conventional than in our day to day life. Raving has always centered around the music, but also a judgement free community for self-expression. From fluffies to LED shoes, many fashion trends have developed within the EDM scene. But a new product out on Kickstarter from Vegas-based company, Shirtwascash, may just be the most versatile article of clothing that needs be in everyone’s closet.
Introducing, The SpiritFlag
Flags have remained a staple in the dance music community for years now. Whether they represent a nation or a sports team, an internet meme or an inside joke, flags are everywhere at every music festival. One drawback however, is that while flags are fun to sport in the moment, they tend to be a burden when you’re not using them. So, Shirtwascash has developed an incredible solution that redefines being “multi-functional,” called the SpiritFlag! Aside from being a full-scale standard flag (58″ x 32.5″), the customizable garment can be worn as a “cloak, poncho, scarf, under-garment, cape, outerwear, cosplay, summer top, and more.” With 2 wrist straps, a large draw-string hood, premium fabric and a hidden pocket, the SpiritFlag is quite possibly the most innovative design on the market today.
Perhaps the best part of the SpiritFlag experience though, is the customization! Shoppers can use a mockup tool to pick from Shirtwascash designs, or they can create their own from scratch. Shirtwascash uses sublimation printing, a new trend in the fashion industry that has changed apparel production. Creating a way for customers to display their “true authentic self,” their are no limitations on colors or image size. They can upload images, add text, and make adjustments accordingly. And, each SpiritFlag is handmade in Las Vegas!

Behind the Shirtwascash company…
Shirtwascash was founded 2 years ago by Ardon Lukasiewicz from the laptop in his bedroom. As a corporate employee, having several failed startups, he was inspired by a reddit post called “4chan designs some shirts.” Ardon decided to put together a survey to see which designs people wanted most, and from there he quit his job and started Shirtwascash. Prior to the SpiritFlag, the company developed it’s reputation as a user-submitted clothing production platform.
