COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibers. What are other fibers? The yarn that comes from old recycled garments hems and other finishes but cannot be traced.
WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our sweaters is similar to the one of the classic jeans trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to its original fit by washing it at 30°. If you decide to wash it by hand, firstly make a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry it in a natural way by lying it on a horizontal plane: this yarn can be subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
Fred V-neck waistcoat was made by Matteo in his atelier in Pisa, with a yarn recycled in Prato.
The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans we use is RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) certified, this guarantees its traceability and sustainability.

How it was made
This sweater is made from old denim fabrics transformed into a new yarn. Its composition is 80% recycled cotton, 15% virgin cotton and 5% other fibers. Rifò jeans sweaters are almost unique pieces and cover all shades of blue, because no further industrial dyes have been used to make it, and the colors come directly from the old pair of jeans.
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.
