Recycled Denim Unisex Shirt Jacket Jo
The unisex overshirt Jo is a loose-fitting shirt-jacket made from a robust fabric from old jeans that were recycled and transformed into new yarns. The Jo shirt can also be styled as a light outerwear, thanks to the new sustainable, low-impact denim fabric we have created. A must have item that should not be missing in your wardrobe.

COMPOSITION: 80% recycled jeans, 15% natural 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 jacket behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few wear , you can bring it back to the original form 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 bord: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
The garments in recycled denim fabric were manufactured in Prato and woven by the looms of local producers. A creation process that takes place at 360 degrees and within a distance of just a few kilometres from our office.
The recycled yarns we use are certified.

The Recycled Denim Unisex Shirt-Jacket
How it was made
Our unisex overshirt made with recycled jeans is 100% cotton. To be precise: 80% recycled denim, 15% virgin cotton to increase resistance and 5% other fibers, resulting from the trimmings and non-traceable details of old regenerated jeans.
Lightweight and soft for summer, the fabric we created with this yarn is a beautiful denim canvas, which look the same on both the front and the reverse.
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.
