We like keeping up with times and staying updated on what’s happening around us.
Our desktops are always a disaster, but that’s where our best ideas were born!
We are committed every day to promote a change of course towards a more sustainable reality for our planet.
We are Italian (and most of all Tuscanian), so our love for good food is not a surprise!
Who we are
Our team is made both of young and expert people.
From this contamination we take the strenght to face new challenges everyday.
Niccolò never stops, he always works: occasionally he even falls asleep in the office or he stares into space, his favourite painting.
Sometimes he doesn’t listen to you, he gets lost in his thoughts, where may he be? You call him again and again and he doesn’t answer or worse: he answers “yes” but he wasn’t listening.
His biggest passion is cinema, he never stops watching movies or mentioning them. Another of his passion is walking in the woods: his father Dante transmitted it to him since he was a kid, when they went together seeking for mushrooms and asparagus.
Niccolò firmly believes that everyone can make a difference, step by step.
Daniele once stepped by accident on Camilla’s foot. She immediately asked: “What’s your sign? Are you a Pisces?”.
She was totally right!
Daniele believes he is lucky: he managed to work with people he like doing a job he loves.
Unfortunately this makes time run faster… but surely he doesn’t get bored while seeking for new fabrics or way to produce new clothes.
He always tries to do what he loves, with the purpose to build something.
Daniele thinks that creating is the best way to change things with the will to improve them.
Serial “to do list” compiler, infusios lover, meditative and nostalgic since she was born.
In life, just like in what she does at work, she loves to be in a “team” because that gives her the self-confidence that isn’t part of her personality.
While everyone’s dream is a vacation on a Caribbean beach, her secret wish is to see the Northern lights. Her favourite season is, in fact, winter.
Her biggest passion is photography. She loves pressing the camera button and moving around the subject to change points of view.
She likes stopping by to observing details that no one ever notice. She hates, instead, being on the other side of the camera.
She is curious and stubborn, there is no getting away from her when she sets her mind to trying something. She once tried five times in a row to make mayonnaise, and finally succeeded.
She likes walking in nature, Asian cuisine and vintage in all its forms.
And of course writing, her main task for Rifò, with a guiding conviction: the means is the message, but the means without the message is like an empty box.
Patience, joyful and polyglot: she's the perfect customer advisor.
A very reserved person, but just at a first sight, she is actually very curious and has a thousand interests. She loves foreign languages and cultures, as well as travelling, and she certainly wouldn't disdain the possibility of an intergalactic one either!
The other half of her passions is belly dancing, an activity that has enriched her enormously.
Warmth and kindness distinguish Michele. He is the one who packages all the e-commerce purchases and manages the shipments. If you ever come across one of his emails regarding an order, you will recognise his impeccable and direct service.
Also known as Gianni: there are some legends about his real name which he has decided to nurture in order to enhance the aura of mystery surrounding him, together with its inseparable bangs. But be careful, he doesn't want to be called a surfe. He doesn't even know how to swim.
In his spare time he is a gamer, an e-car designer and an intrepid fisherman... even if he considers himself above all an undiscovered cyclist who would have put on a show at the Giro d'Italia race.
Back in Florence after a few years in Barcelona, where she has focused her interest in sustainable fashion, Bianca is the new entry in Rifò's communication team.
Neatfreak or chronic mess maker? She is still trying to figure it out, but in the meantime she practices therapeutic decluttering throughout the office.
From an early age she played with the first videocameras, which probably only recorded in black and white. One day she would like to merge all the most important frames of her life into one video.
And... the most important thing: the videos cannot be edited without a little chocolate treat after lunch. No chocolate, no concentration.
Chiara is our designer. Finally a vegetarian in the group! p>
She lives with her head in the clouds: every single detail that she notices in the world around her can set her off on a journey to unknown worlds. When this happens, she keeps her gazer fixed: it may look like she's eyeballing you, but actually she is not even seeing you.
When she doesn't draw she gets lost in many other projects: one day it is photography, another day it's cooking, then gardening, writing...
Whenever she gets the chance, she goes to the seaside, she dives into the water, rearranges her ideas and then lets her fantasy go. She thinks she was a fish in a previous life. Probably she really was.
Her motto? Grace and kindness will save the world.
Lia is ready to welcome others with a smile and a good word: in her pocket, she always has a way of uniting and helping people.
As well as bringing a good mood (and, just importantly, coffee), she is responsible for the design of household items and the spaces in which we work.
With her creativity as an industrial and textile designer she took care of the details of our new headquarters by using our raw material: wool.
It is from her multicultural roots that ideas come to life. Her sensitivity to art is firmly grounded by a profound practical sense.
So you might find her hammering at the top of a ladder, building, or fixing something, and even then she'll find a way to help you out.
Margherita, one third Ligurian, one third Bergamasque and now one third Tuscan!
Her crazy love for fashion and vintage, eclectic and sometimes bizarre clothes has given her a superpower... Her hands are like magnets: everything she finds, even in a tiny village shop, sticks to her.
An explosive volcano of emotions, words and ideas... she pays attention to the smallest detail and nothing gets past her: going to a museum with her is dangerous... 24 hours may not be enough.
Cheerful, always willing to lend a hand and find solutions that can bring everyone together to solve even the most difficult problems! All this, of course, only after drinking coffee... no sugar, please!
Clinton (the president)
Clinton has also joined the family of Tuscan tortelli, despite his attachment to his Nigerian roots and cuisine.
Clinton prepares our e-commerce packages with the utmost care and attention to detail.
He knows the entire Rifò warehouse inside out and is able to navigate his way through the thousands of product names. His colleagues in the communications team have made life a bit difficult for him with the naming, but he manages not to fall into the tricky trap of almost homonymous garments.
Her secret dream is to learn every language of this Earth in order to have all its corners handy. And so she speaks and translates by switching from Italian to English, from German to Russian like a magician.
Behind her professionalism and politeness, however, lies a very witty nature: with her sense of humour, she's always ready to look at each situation from unexpected angles.
Lucrezia draws her energy from art and conviviality and strongly believes in encounters, whether they be with something, someone, a painting or a piece of music.
