Recycled cotton jeans socks Amerigo
Amerigo unisex cotton jeans socks are made from recycled jeans. The striped pattern comes in fact from two different shades of old jeans mixed together.
- Jacquard weaved stripes
- Weight: 100 gr
- Fabrics with 4 threads in gauge 7
- High rib 1:1
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 is similar to the one of the classic jeans trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to its 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 can be subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
The recycled jeans socks Amerigo are knitted by Lena and Bruno, who are located 10 km from our office, with a denim yarn recycled in Prato.
The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans we use is RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) certified, this guarantees its traceability and sustainability.

Amerigo striped jeans socks
Within the limits we find our strength. The recycled yarn from old jeans for example exists only in some shades of blue. This is why we decided to mix them and create some marinière stripes with our Baltic blue and Mediterranean blue.
For each pair of recycled jeans socks we can save a lot of resources: 87% reduction of water consumption, 77% of energy and the reduction of 93% of CO2 emissions.
How it is made
Amerigo socks are made from old denim fabrics transformed into a new yarn.
Their 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 come directly from the old pair of jeans.
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.
