Men Recycled Cotton Jeans Sweater Adriano
Adriano men sweater in recycled cotton is made with yarns obtained from old jeans. It is made by combining threads of different colors and creating an irregular and unique salt and pepper effect.
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 Adriano recycled jeans 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 Adriano sweater with its "television pattern" is casual but with a touch of class of its own, with the salt and pepper texture but made with shades of blue. It reminds us of the 70s, the fancy and rich textures of the sweaters of those years. Perfect with a black pair of jeans, but also with more elegant trousers.
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.
How it was made
Adriano 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 Adriano's recycled denim sweater a very special one-off piece.
