Recycled Cotton Jeans Sweater Man Gino
The Gino men's sweater in recycled cotton is made with a yarn obtained from old jeans. A lightweight cotton sweater with a wraparound neck which is perfect for summer evenings and mid-season.
COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibres. The recycled yarn gives the jeans jersey a slightly knickerbocker effect, plain but with different coloured dots.
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.
The Gino 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.

Gino jeans sweater
The denim sweater, made in an ethical and sustainable way, is perfect for the spring and summer period. 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 Gino cotton denim sweater is perfect for spring but also for the evening by the sea. Perfect for a casual look but also to be worn with a shirt underneath.
Gino was our first denim sweater, it is a truly versatile basic garment suitable for all ages.
How it was made
The Gino round neck sweater is made from denim fabrics transformed into a new yarn.
Its composition is 80% regenerated cotton, 15% virgin cotton and 5% other fibers.
Rifò jeans sweaters 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 sweaters are truly 0 km. They are made 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.
