The Nico recycled wool unisex waistcoat has a V-neck and weighs 235 g. This 100% wool waistcoat has a cable knit stitch on the front and a plain stitch on the back.
COMPOSITION: 100% recycled wool.
WASHING CARE: We recommend washing recycled wool garments by hand to best maintain their quality. Alternatively, choose a machine gentle wash at 30° maximum. If hand-washing, do a gentle spin cycle afterwards to drain off the water, then dry by laying it 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 Nico 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.
Free standard shipping in 3-5 days for all orders over 150€ for EU countries. Size change and free returns within 60 days. For shipping times and costs see our table. You can choose Repack, the reusable packaging.
LOVE LASTS WARRANTY: All Rifò garments are handcrafted with passion, respecting high quality standards. If 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 ragmen, 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 Nico vest is made of 100% recycled wool from industrial production waste. These scraps are sorted by colour and then reduced to the state of a fibre which is mixed to obtain the desired colour. Finally, the fibre is processed into a new sustainable yarn.
FOREVER SERVICE: If you want, after two years it is possible to return your Rifò pullover for recycling. In return you will receive a 10 € voucher. Visit the dedicated page for further information.
Sorting wool industrial surplus by colour avoids further dyeing. This mechanical process thus saves many litres of water as well as dyes and polluting chemicals, preserving the planet's water reserves.
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.
