- Crew neck
- Regular fit
- 5 cm slit on the sides
COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibers. What are other fibers? The yarn that comes from old recycled garments hems and other finishes but cannot be traced.
WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our knitwear 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.
The openwork sweater Mia is made by Lena and Bruno, who are located 10 km from our show room, 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.

The openwork sweater Mia
Mia is a light sweater thanks to its perforated pattern. Inspired by the mid-season, when you feel like wearing long sleeves again.
How it is made
Mia 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 garments are almost unique pieces and cover all shades of blue, because no further industrial dyes have been used to make it, and the colors came 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 knitwear is made locally 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.
