Recycled Cotton Jeans Sweater Women Grazia
The Grazia women sweater in recycled cotton is made with yarns obtained from old jeans. A lightweight cotton sweater with a low round crewneck, which is perfect for cooler summer evenings.
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 Grazia 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.

How to wear it
The Grazia cotton denim sweater is fresh and perfect for spring but also for the evening by the sea in summer, when a cool breeze caresses the shoulders. Its round neckline makes it feminine and suitable to be worn over other garments.
Grazia was our first jeans sweater, it is a truly versatile basic garment suitable for all ages, as it can be worn for an elegant, but also sporty look.
How it was made
The Grazia round neck sweater is made from 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.
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.
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. Even if they occasionally drive them crazy, they are a great satisfaction for them.
