The Avant-garde Jacket Greta was made in Prato in Veruska's laboratory, 100 meters from the Rifò showroom. The recycled fabric of the Avanguardista Jacket was designed and studied entirely by Rifò and woven by Massimo's looms, as in the best tradition of Prato.
The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans we use is RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) certified, this guarantees its traceability and sustainability.

The Avant-garde jeans Jacket Greta
Every single detail of the fabric of the avant-garde jacket was designed by Rifò: from the fabric to the ribbon of details. The design of Greta jacket takes inspiration from the world of workwear. It has a regular fit, with a short cut that enhances the silhouette of the body, adjustable through the button.
This exchange between feminine and masculine is intended as a tribute to the avant-gardist whose name it bears: the diva of the 1920s Greta Garbo, an icon of femininity and elegance in front of the screen, with a clean and almost masculine style in everyday life.
How it was made
Greta is avant-garde because it sees the future, in which not recycling textile fibers will be the practice.
The Greta denim jacket is in fact made of recycled cotton from 7 old jeans for 80%, 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.
For the creation of a recycled denim jacket, we recycled about seven pairs of jeans and only 100 liters of water were used, against the 3000 required by an identical virgin cotton garment: a reduction in water consumption equal to 97%, together with 77% of energy reduction and 95% of CO2 emissions reduction.
Who made it
What gives Greta something more is the accurate and precise manufacturing for the smallest details.
The women's avant-garde jacket is made 100 meters from us (literally), in Veruska's workshop. Here the artisans cut and sew the pieces of Rifò's denim jacket together with their sewing machines.
