WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our sweaters behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to the original fit 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 plane: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
Raffaella 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.

Raffaella recycled jeans sweater
The denim sweater, made in an ethical and sustainable way, is perfect for the spring and summer period. The yarn mix creates a unique effect and recalls an old analog television with no signal.
How to wear it
Raffaella is a woman cotton sweater for women perfect for mid-season. Basic but with a very particular texture given even from the jeans yarn, it enhances even the simplest of outfits. It can be worn outside the trousers, or inside with a belt for a sophisticated final effect.
How it was made
Raffaella is made from old jeans, transformed into two new yarn colors: Atlantic blue and Mediterranean blue.
To obtain the "signalless television effect", we used two dark and one light colored yarns, which are joined together in the weaving randomly. This process makes Raffaella's recycled denim sweater a very special one-off piece.
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 really a 0 miles production. They are made by Lena and Bruno, in their family factory, 12 km from us. Their knitwear is now specialized in the use of recycled yarns, which give them a lot of satisfaction.
