Denim Newsboy Hat Alex
The Newsboy recycled jeans hat Alex is unisex and it is made with the denim canvas that we designed starting from the recycled jeans yarn. It is inspired by the men's hats of the 1930s, common among newsboys, journalists, and men from the working class. Alex, the newsboy hat in recycled jeans is soft on the head, lined in recycled jersey, and with an elastic on the back which allows adaptability to different sizes. It also has a rigid brim covered with denim. The crown of the newsboy hat is made with recycled cotton is made of six segments finished with a button covered with the same denim fabric designed by Rifò.
The newsboy is inspired by the british classic, made with resistant fabrics suitable for the working class. Revisited with an innovative material, Alex is perfect for finishing a summer or autumn look.
How it was made
The fabric used for Alex is made up of 80% recycled cotton from old jeans, while the rest is 15% natural cotton, which gives it resistance, and 5% other fibers (yarn from old stitching and more). To make it, Rifò designed a denim fabric, which reproduces the texture of the jeans from which the yarn has been recycled. Inside Alex is lined with jersey fabric made with recycled cotton and recycled polyester from plastic bottles.
To create Rifò's recycled fabric, we save a considerable amount of water due to coloring, dyes and chemicals: 97% of water consumption, 77% of energy and 95% of CO2 emissions are saved compared to a virgin denim jeans.
