The sweatshirt Altea, half recycled and half organic
How it is made
With this composition we achieved the goal of a recycled but completely natural jersey fabric. 50% is made from recycled cotton from industrial waste, while the other 50% is made from virgin organic cotton.
Woven at zero miles
The recycled cotton sweatshirt was designed by Rifò and woven a few kilometers from us using traditional circular machines. The result is a soft jersey, fleeced inside.
Organic cotton comes from a non-intensive cultivation , which does not deplete the soil and therefore requires much less water. This jersey allows to save about 84% of water, compared to a cotton genetically modified to be more productive.
Who made it
In his laboratory in Prato Andrea has been making jersey garments for a lifetime. This is why we chose him for our rcycled t-shirts and polo shirts.
