DETAILS

The Lola knit dress with V-neck is made of a yarn obtained from the recycling of old jeans. This long cotton dress has a very unique stitch that looks like something your grandma handknitted, but with a breathable and contemporary design.

  • Deep V-neck
  • Size slits
  • Openwork braided stitch
  • Speckled pattern, due to impurities resulting from the recycling process
  • Weight 530 gr

COMPOSITION: 80% recycled jeans, 15% virgin cotton and 5% other fibres. What are other fibres? The yarns from hems and other trimmings in old recycled garments that cannot be traced.

WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our knitted garment behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few wears, you can bring it back to the original shape by washing it at 30°. If you decide to wash it by hand, firstly make a light spin to drain the water, then dry it in a natural way by lying it on a horizontal board: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.

FIT

REGULAR: This garment has a regular fit. We recommend your usual size. See the size chart for further information.

How it is made

This garment is made from old denim fabrics transformed into a new yarn. Its composition is 80% recycled cotton, 15% virgin cotton and 5% other fibers. Rifò jeans garments are almost unique pieces and cover all shades of blue, because no further industrial dyes have been used to make it, and the colors came directly from the old pair of jeans.

Environmental impact

To make each Rifò denim garment we estimate that they have been recycled from two to five pairs of old jeans consuming only 80 liters of water, against the 3000 required by an identical virgin cotton garment. The result is a reduction of roughly 87% water consumption, 77% energy and 93% CO2.

Social impact

For every purchase on our online shop, we will donate 2€ to the social impact project Nei nostri panni, cenciaiolis to be, which aims to create a school for cenciaioli, the artisans of textile recycling. Every donation will support the training of young people coming from the local immigrant reception centres.

Who made it

This garment was made by Matteo in his knitting workshop near Pisa.

Together with the whole team, in this small but very accurate company every phase of the design and processing is followed, putting all the love and know-how possible into every single product.

Transparent prices

Why do we say our prices are fair 365 days a year?

Because we choose to produce in Italy, with valuable craftsmanship. Because we choose quality raw materials that are sustainable for the planet. Because we produce small quantities to limit waste, which makes it difficult for us to lower unit costs.

That's not all. Compared to our costs, we have a low profit margin. We don't intend to accumulate wealth, we rather reinvest in research, which allows us to create value and grow as a brand.
