Recycled and recyclable
Rifò is a sustainable fashion brand that was born from a global emergency. We want to promote a change towards an ethical and sustainable economic model for the clothing industry. We have produced enough materials and transformed so many resources that we could recycle what already exists. For this reason Rifò produces garments with recyclable materials and through regenerated textile fibers. We mainly use Global Recycled Standard certified materials.
Only 30% of the textile waste produced annually is properly recycled. In addition, if we consider the overproduction problems related to the world of fashion, it is easy to understand that we must do something. Fashion and clothing can be important drivers of the circular economy. Rifò wants to do its part through ethical garments made recycling fibers that are also as natural as possible.
We wanted to use sustainable and quality yarns. We wanted to be able to create durable garments that make people feel good. For this reason we decided to use only recycled yarns for our products. All our yarns have been created through the recycling process that takes place from the collection and selection of old garments, which are frayed, transformed again into raw material, spun and then woven into new durable and quality garments. Our second raw materials are mainly old cashmere sweaters from which we make our soft cashmere sweaters; old cotton jeans at least 95% from which we create new sweaters and denim fabrics; and cotton recycled from industrial waste that allows us to create fresh t-shirts and polo shirts, but also beach towels and shawls.
Textile recycled materials
With our production, not only we recycle old garments, but we reduce the consumption of water, pesticides and chemicals; normally used during the production. The materials we use are innovative because they are the result of an industrial tradition and energy savings. We believe that there is no longer need to produce new textile fibers, we can use those that have already been produced and regenerate them. the only think we need is to put innovation and creativity first. In this way from a plastic bottle you can get recycled polyester yarn, from a pair of pants a sweater or a bag: there's no limit!
