Recycled Cashmere Striped Gloves Man Fuso
FOR ALL THE ORDERS OF CASHMERE PRODUCTS OVER € 200, YOU WILL RECEIVE AS A GIFT OUR LINT REMOVER JOHNNY, THE ENEMY OF PILLING!
Limited edition: we used the recycled cashmere cone bottoms to create our zero waste striped gloves for men. Usually this yarn is just disposed, because it is easier to throw it away than reuse it, but thanks to our artisans we accepted the challenge.
COMPOSITION: 95% recycled cashmere, 5% recycled wool.
WASHING CARE: We suggest to wash the recycled cashmere garments by hand, to better maintain cashmere's quality. Alternatively, you can choose a machine wash at a maximum of 30° with a gentle cycle. If you decide to wash them by hand, do firstly a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry them naturally by lying them on a horizontal surface.
Our recycled cashmere gloves are knitted by Giuseppe, in his family workshop where he carries on a tradition. To make the recycled cashmere gloves it has been used a yarn recycled by the local "Cenciaioli" of Prato, GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified.
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.
Free standard shipping in 3-5 days for all orders over 150€ for EU countries.
Returns: the gloves Fuso are an anti-waste manifesto and therefore they cannot be exchanged for other goods. We have set this condition in order to reduce the impact generated by their transport and their sale.

The zero waste striped gloves
Nothing is thrown away
The zero waste gloves were born from the recycled cashmere botton of the cones Thanks to the skill (and also to the patience!) of the craftsman Giuseppe, we have combined various colors together to create a limited edition. We had about 15 kg of yarn available and to be sure it was enough we decided to make these gloves even more colorful with contrasting stripes.
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.
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.
CERTIFICATIONS: Our recycled cashmere wool is certified GRS (Global Recycling Standard).
