The Avant-garde Jeans Jacket Ernesto
Ernesto is a light but sturdy jacket, with an urban style and details that tell a story. It is inspired by 1920s workwear clothing. What makes the Ernesto jacket unique are the many workwear details, from the cartridge belt to the reinforcement on the buttoning of the garment.
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
Ernesto is avant-garde because he sees the future, in which recycling textile fibers will be normal.
The Ernesto recycled denim jacket is made of 80% recycled cotton from 5 old jeans, while the rest is 15% natural cotton, which gives it resistance, and 5% other fibers (yarn from the old stitching and more) .
To make this jacket Rifò designed a denim fabric, which reproduces the texture of the jeans from which the yarn has been recycled.
Who made it
What gives Ernesto jacket something more is the accurate and precise manufacturing for the smallest details.
The 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.
