Recycled Cotton Jeans Sweater Man Adriano1st generation
Adriano men's sweater in recycled cotton is made with a yarn obtained from old jeans. It is made by combining threads of different colors and creating an irregular and unique salt and pepper design that recalls the old analogic televisions, when suddenly the signal was missing.
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 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.
Adriano recycled jeans sweater is knitted 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.

Adriano jeans sweater
The denim sweater, made in an ethical and sustainable way, is perfect for the mid season. Color Blue 100% natural Denim: from jeans of the same color we obtain a recycled yarn without using dyes or chemicals.
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.
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.
Using regenerated yarn from old jeans allows you not to dye the garment again and therefore to save about 97% of a precious resource such as water compared to a normal cotton sweater.
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.
