The button-less recycled cotton jeans cardigan for women Cara is made with yarns obtained from recycled jeans. It has soft puffy sleeves with high ribbed cuffs. Cara is available in three shades of denim blue: each batch is unique and varies depending on the recycled garments. For this reason, there may be some lighter and darker traces of “other fibers” in the yarns, which give a nice effect to the clothes.

  • 11 cm high ribbed balloon sleeves
  • Cardigan stitch
  • Length to the second hip
  • Comfort fit
  • Ribbed bands and cuffs reinforced with a little portion of Lycra to keep the shape at its best

COMPOSITION: 80% recycled jeans, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibers. What are other fibers? The yarns from hems and other trimmings in old recycled garments that cannot be traced.

WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our knitted garments behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few wears , 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 naturally by lying it on a horizontal board: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.

COMFORT: This garment has a slightly loose fit, which does not hug the body. According to your preferences, consider choosing the size that corresponds to your measurements or a size down. See the size chart for further information.

The recycled jeans sweater Cara is made by Fabio, 5 km from us, with yarns recycled in Prato.

The recycled yarns we use are certified.

How it was made

Cara sweater 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 sweaters 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.

Environmental impact

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.

Social impact

For every purchase on our online shop, we will donate 2€ to the social impact project Nei nostri panni, cenciaiolis to be, which aims to create a school for cenciaioli, the artisans of textile recycling. Every donation will support the training of young people coming from the local immigrant reception centres.

Who made it

This sweater was made in Fabio's family business in Prato, thanks also to the expertise of his collaborators Camilla and Lara. The care with which they make the garments is equal to the good vibes you can feel in the company: every time we visit them they are in the middle of celebrating an employee's birthday!

Transparent prices

Why do we say our prices are fair 365 days a year?

Because we choose to produce in Italy, with valuable craftsmanship. Because we choose quality raw materials that are sustainable for the planet. Because we produce small quantities to limit waste, which makes it difficult for us to lower unit costs.

That's not all. Compared to our costs, we have a low profit margin. We don't intend to accumulate wealth, we rather reinvest in research, which allows us to create value and grow as a brand.
