COMPOSITION: 80% recycled jeans, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibres. What are other fibres? The yarns from hems and other trimmings in old recycled garments that cannot be traced.
WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our sweaters behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few wear , you can bring it back to the original form 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 bord: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
The Brigitte recycled jeans sweater is knitted by Lena and Bruno, who are located 10 km from our showroom. Denim yarns recycled in Prato.
The recycled yarns we use are certified.

Brigitte sweater has a soft fit and a naive and relaxed style. Elegance, simplicity and comfort go hand-in-hand in this garment, perfect for the end of summer or not to be surprised by the first fresh breezes.
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.
How it is made
Brigitte V-neck 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.
Who made it
Rifò recycled jeans sweaters are truly 0 km. They are made by Lena and Bruno, in their family lab about 12 km from us. Their knitwear is now specialized in the use of recycled yarns, a great satisfaction for them.
