ZERO WASTE LIMITED EDITION. These gloves are made with yarn left over from our previous productions. Generally, this yarn is thrown away because it is easier than reusing it, but thanks to the help of our artisans we accepted the challenge.
This way no resources are wasted and we manage to reduce the price of our products, contributing 100% to a circular economy.
WASHING CARE: We suggest washing the recycled cashmere garments by hand, to better maintain the cashmere's quality. Once they are washed, do a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry them naturally by lying them on a horizontal surface. You can also put it in the washer at a maximum of 30° on a gentle cycle.
Our recycled cashmere women's gloves Anita are knitted by Giuseppe, in his family workshop where he carries on a tradition. To make the recycled cashmere and wool it has been used a yarn recycled by the local "Cenciaioli" of Prato.

Rifò Zero waste creations want to send a message: no produced material has to be wasted. The textile sector generates high quantities of scraps and we aim at reducing it as much as possible. Ethical production and recycling too mean having an environmental impact, so we must try to exploit all the textile fibers we created.
How it was made
This recycled cashmere gloves are 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.
Selecting old cashmere sweaters by color it is possible to avoid dyeing the recycled yarn again. This mechanical process therefore allows to save many liters of water as well as dyes and chemicals, Furthermore, unlike virgin cashmere, recycled cashmere avoids the desertification of the Asian highlands where the goats producing the precious wool are intensively bred.
Who made it
Rifò gloves are made by Giuseppe, craftman but also theatre actor, the Roberto Benigni of knitwear :) Giuseppe, in fact, beside carrying on the family tradition of processing recycled yarn, cultivates a passion for the theater and plays monologues on the genesis of the recycling tradition of Prato.
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.
