Women Recycled Cotton Sweater Audrey
Audrey is a light women's long-sleeved cotton sweater, sustainably made of a recycled cotton and organic cotton blend. The half mock neck makes it suitable for all seasons. The very fine stitch gives it a delicate ribbed texture throughout.
- Half mock neck
- Side slits
- Ribbed cuffs, neck and bottom edges
COMPOSITION: 50% recycled cotton from production surplus, 50% organic cotton.
WASHING CARE: To best take care of this recycled item, wash it at 30 degrees on a gentle cycle. If possible, prefer handwashing.
If you decide to handwash, give it a light spin to remove excess water and dry it naturally by laying it flat: this yarn may be subject to stretching due to the weight of the water.
REGULAR: This garment has a regular fit. We recommend your usual size. See the size chart for further information.
The Audrey sweater was made by Bruno and Lena in their family workshop, with recycled yarn from Prato.

How it is made
This garment is made of a yarn obtained from a blend of organic cotton and recycled cotton from industrial textile waste.
Again, we turn waste into new resources designed to last over time.
Organic cotton comes from a non-intensive cultivation , which does not deplete the soil and therefore requires much less water. This jersey allows to save about 84% of water, compared to a cotton genetically modified to be more productive.
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.
Who made it
Rifò sweaters are handcrafted by Lena and Bruno, the most beautiful couple in knitwear, in their little family workshop 12 km away from us.
Why do we say our prices are fair 365 days a year?
Because we choose to produce in Italy, with valuable craftsmanship. Because we choose quality raw materials that are sustainable for the planet. Because we produce small quantities to limit waste, which makes it difficult for us to lower unit costs.
That's not all. Compared to our costs, we have a low profit margin. We don't intend to accumulate wealth, we rather reinvest in research, which allows us to create value and grow as a brand.
