COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton, 5% other fibers.
WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our sweaters behaves similarly to that of classic jeans trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to its original fit by washing it in a washing machine 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.
The Gae recycled jeans sweater is knitted by Lena and Bruno, who are located 10 km from our showroom, with a denim 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.

Gae v-neck jeans sweater
How to wear it
Gae is a cotton sweater, but with a heaviness that is also suitable for autumn and winter. The herringbone details are made with various shades of recycled denim colors that give it a warm and rich look. The V-neck makes Gae perfect to be worn with a white shirt underneath for an office look, or with a t-shirt to be more sporty.
How it is made
Gae V-neck 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.
About five pairs of old jeans have been recycled to make each denim sweater. Furthermore only 80 liters of water were used against the 3000 required by an identical virgin cotton garment: a 97% reduction in water consumption that is combined to 77% of that of energy and the reduction of 95% of CO2 emissions.
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.
