Handmade by a group of Turkish artisans using recycled textiles, Project Americana features 18 unique interpretations of the American Flag assembled in unconventional arrangements infused with electric color. Project Americana originated with the intention of encouraging design without boundaries through the freedom of expression and reviving lost folk art traditions.
Flags are known as some of the earliest examples of Americana. For the first 135 years of its existence, the design for the American national flag was left open to interpretation and imagination. It was not until 1912, that a formal design standard was adopted.
