Who is Rifò

Rifò comes from the Tuscan dialect and it means redoing. A 0 km name for a local clothing production that takes up the tradition of textile upcycling.

Rifò

Rifò is a Tuscan inflection of the verb 'rifare', meaning 'to remake', or 'to redo'.
We chose this dialectal name because it represents the way of speaking of the locals and the so-called Cenciaioli. They are the artisans who, more than a hundred years ago, invented the recycling method of old clothes we adopted.
That's the reason behind our name, which discloses a traditional craft we are 're-doing' and strongly committed to passing on.
