How it was made
Our sustainable workwear jacket made with recycled jeans is 100% cotton. To be precise: 80% recycled denim, 15% virgin cotton to increase resistance and 5% other fibers, resulting from the trimmings and non-traceable details of old regenerated jeans.
Lightweight and soft for summer, the fabric we created with this yarn is a beautiful denim canvas, which look the same on both the front and the reverse.
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.
