The Avant-garde Jacket Greta was made in Prato in Veruska's laboratory, 100 meters from our showroom . The recycled fabric of the jacket was designed and studied entirely by Rifò and woven by Massimo's looms, as in the best tradition of Prato.
The recycled yarns we use are certified.

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.
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.
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% virgin 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.
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.
