Why 100% composition?
Before sending you our discount coupon, we will make sure that the label of your garments is intact and that it bears the wording "100% cashmere" or "100% wool" (even 95% is ok). This requirement is necessary for the recycling of any textile fiber, expecially for a precious one such as cashmere.
What happens to your
For the recycling of wool fibers, we collaborate with Reverso, a supply chain of local companies that have been involved in giving new life to textile fibers for years. This allows us to give everyone the opportunity to contribute to a circular economy project. In fact, we take care of recovering old clothes that would be thrown into general waste, to ensure that they are transformed into a new raw material in the form of yarn.
Traceability and transparency
Thanks to the Reverso system we can guarantee the maximum transparency of the regeneration process. The partner companies of Reverso supply chain are "rugsman", spinning mills and weavers who deal with sorting and sanitizing the garments and then recycling and transforming them into new yarns and new fabrics. By sending us your old wool or cashmere sweater via the Rifò collection service, you can be sure that it will be transformed into a new resource.
