Zero waste Striped Recycled Cotton Socks Women
Limited edition zero waste striped socks. We recovered the cone bottoms of the recycled cotton and combined it with recycled polyester to create these lively socks. Generally, this yarn is thrown away because it is easier than to reuse it, but thanks to our artisans we accepted the challenge.
This pack contains two pair of socks, in two different color combination red + grey + blue and beige + black and pink salmon.
COMPOSITION: 52% recycled cotton, 48% recycled polyester.
WASHING: To make your socks last, wash them at 30 degrees on a delicate cycle. If you can, wash by hand, especially to preserve the light and dark contrasting colors details.
Rifò cotton socks are made by Daniela, in her historic hosiery and tights company.
The recycled yarns we use are certified.

Zero waste socks
We had about 23 kg of yarn that was left over from the production of our previous t-shirts, polo shirts and socks made with recycled cotton plus recycled polyester. Throwing them away was unacceptable, so we used all the colors for the stripes of these fancy socks.
How they were made
The yarn used comes from cotton waste and recycled plastic bottles. This mechanical process saves a lot of water and resources compared to the production of a classic pair of cotton socks.
With Rifò cotton socks we give a new life not only to cotton waste, but also to plastic bottles, which otherwise would end up polluting the world.
We produce huge and useless quantities of virgin polyester, why can't we only use the recycled one?
