Rio Grande do Sul flag inspires Nike SC Internacional kit
Apr '13
The new S.C. Internacional kit designs for the 2013 season are inspired by the Rio Grande do Sul flag and mischievous club mascot Saci (a one-legged boy with a red cap prominent in Brasilian folklore).

The color inspiration is represented in three tonal diagonal stripes as a reference to the flag of Rio Grande do Sul. Inside the shirt back sits a graphic of the first emblem of the club. On the top of the club's badge is Saci's cap.

The shorts are white, with a thin, red, vertical stripe on each side. The socks are also white, with a vertical red line on each calf and the inscription "SCI".

In line with Nike’s commitment to combining performance with lower environmental impact, fabric for the new the shirt fabric is made with a minimum 96 percent recycled polyester. Each kit is made using an average 13 recycled plastic bottles.

The kits are constructed using moisture-wicking Nike Dri-FIT technology: the fabric's knit structure is 23 percent lighter and 20 percent stronger than Nike’s previous kits. Bonded re-enforced T-bar junctions support critical seams on the shirt and shorts, and inner welded seams with a flat finish construction improve overall comfort.

The new shirts go on sale in Brasil April 12.
