For every purchase on our online shop, we will donate 2€ to the social impact project Nei nostri panni, cenciaiolis to be, which aims to create a school for ragmen, the artisans of textile recycling. Every donation will support the training of young people coming from the local immigrant reception centres.
How it was made
Rifò's recycled cotton fleece cape is made with a jacquard loom and therefore has a double face. To obtain the warm plush texture, the blanket is washed and then brushed, using special machines equipped with thousands of tiny pins that pull out the pile of the yarn to make it softer and softer. The raising gives the fabric softness and, by increasing the amount of air retained, improves the thermal insulation properties of the fabric.
By using at least 60% recycled cotton for our products, we avoid the production of virgin cotton, one of the most polluting on the planet. The least polluting cotton is the one that was already produced: in addition to not requiring pesticides and chemicals, the cotton recycling process is a mechanical process, so it does not require the use of water.
Who made it
Rifò capes are woven by David with the help of Gabriele in Prato, with looms that have been in operation for more than 50 years!
Why do we say our prices are fair 365 days a year?
Because we choose to produce in Italy, with valuable craftsmanship. Because we choose quality raw materials that are sustainable for the planet. Because we produce small quantities to limit waste, which makes it difficult for us to lower unit costs.
That's not all. Compared to our costs, we have a low profit margin. We don't intend to accumulate wealth, we rather reinvest in research, which allows us to create value and grow as a brand.
Thanks to presale it’s possible to get a discount and avoid creating overproduction.
For presales that are longer than 2 weeks, the closer you get to the shipping date, the more the discount applied will decrease, never going below 10%.
