WASHING CARE: We recommend washing recycled wool garments by hand to keep their quality. Alternatively, choose a gentle machine wash at 30° maximum. If you wash by hand, do a light spin cycle afterwards to let the water drain off, then lay it to dry on a horizontal surface.
COMFORTABLE FOR HER: This garment has a slightly loose fit, which does not hug the body. According to your preferences, consider choosing the size that corresponds to your measurements or a smaller one.
REGULAR FOR HIM: This garment has a regular fit. We recommend that you choose your usual size.
The Eugenio cashmere Vest is made locally, using certified yarns, recycled by the cenciaioli of Prato. By using recycled textile fibers we preserve a very old tradition, born in our district more than 100 years ago.
2 YEARS LOVE LASTS WARRANTY: All Rifò garments are handcrafted with passion, respecting high quality standards. If, during two years from the purchase, you ever find some manufacturing imperfection in Rifò products, we will repair them and return them to you as new. For more information visit this page.
For every purchase on our online shop, we will donate 2€ to the social impact project Nei nostri panni, cenciaiolis to be, which aims to create a school for cenciaioli, the artisans of textile recycling. Every donation will support the training of young people coming from the local immigrant reception centres.
How it was made
The recycled cashmere sleeveless vest Eugenio is made with a pre-loved yarn, because it was born from the recycling of old clothes that continue to tell their story, despite having taken on a new shape. The old sweaters are in fact selected by color, reduced to fiber and transformed into a new sustainable yarn.
FOREVER SERVICE: If you want to give your Rifò sweater back after two years you can send it back to us and we will recycled it again. You will also receive a coupon to be used on our shop online. Visit the dedicated page for more information.
Selezionando i vecchi maglioni in cashmere per colore è possibile evitare di tingere di nuovo il filato rigenerato. Questo processo meccanico permette quindi di risparmiare moltissimi litri di acqua oltre che di coloranti e sostanze chimiche inquinanti, preservando le riserve idriche di acqua del pianeta. Il cashmere rigenerato inoltre, a differenza di quello vergine, evita la desertificazione degli altipiani asiatici dove vengono allevate in maniera intensiva le capre produttrici della preziosa lana.
Who made it
Rifò sweaters are handcrafted by Lena and Bruno, the most beautiful couple in knitwear, in their little family workshop 12 km away from us. After a lifetime of working virgin yarns they are testing themselves and specializing in recycled yarn.
Why do we say our prices are fair 365 days a year?
Because we choose to produce in Italy, with valuable craftsmanship. Because we choose quality raw materials that are sustainable for the planet. Because we produce small quantities to limit waste, which makes it difficult for us to lower unit costs.
That's not all. Compared to our costs, we have a low profit margin. We don't intend to accumulate wealth, we rather reinvest in research, which allows us to create value and grow as a brand.
