Recycled Cotton Jeans Knitted Bag Iole
The roomy striped knit bag was created from denim yarn regenerated from old jeans.
- Measures: 36x36 cm
- Handles size: 62 cm
COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibers. What are other fibers? The yarn that comes from old recycled garments hems and other finishes but cannot be traced.
WASHING CARE: The denim yarn behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to the original fit by washing it at 30 °. If you decide to wash it by hand, firstly make a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry it in a natural way by lying it on a horizontal plane: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
The recycled jeans knitted bag is made by knitted by Lena and Bruno, who are located 10 km from our show room, with a denim yarn recycled in Prato.
The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans that we use is certifiedRCS (Recycled Claim Standard), this certifies its traceability and sustainability.

The striped knitted bag Iole
The knitted bag Iole, together with Nora crop top and Lucio striped cotton beanie are our little jeans capsule collection. A selection of accessories perfect for summer and for the beach.
How it is made
The Iole knitted tote bag 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.
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.
Who made it
Rifò recycled jeans garments are truly made locally. They are made by Lena and Bruno, in their family lab about 12 km from us.
Their knitwear is now specialized in the use of recycled yarns. Even if they occasionally drive them crazy, they are a great satisfaction for them.
