How to wear it
We designed Italo to be beautiful in its simplicity. The design of Italo is essential. All the value of this men's sweater lies in the rib stitch, in the soft and slightly oversized lines and in the comfortable crew neck, which help to create a good balance between the tradition of Tuscan knitwear and a fresh and contemporary garment. and contemporary.
Italo looks great with "chino" style trousers, a pair of vintage jeans but also, to make it more sophisticated with a black trousers with a nordic design.
How it was made
The recycled cashmere sweater is made with a pre-loved yarn, because it was born from the regeneration of old clothes that continue to tell their story, despite having taken on a new shape. The old sweaters are in fact selected by color, reduced to fiber and transformed into a new sustainable yarn.

Selecting old cashmere sweaters by color it is possible to avoid dyeing the recycled yarn again. This mechanical process therefore allows to save many liters of water as well as dyes and chemicals, preserving the water reserves of the planet. Furthermore, unlike virgin cashmere, recycled cashmere avoids the desertification of the Asian highlands where the goats producing the precious wool are intensively bred.
