Galateo recycled cashmere mittens are perfect for keeping the hands of the little ones warm, in alternative to gloves. They are tied together by a cashmere tube so that they never separate from each other. The Rifò logo is hand embroidered with our recycled cashmere yarn.

Their name is a tribute to Italo Calvino's The Cloven Viscount, who reminds us that to dream it is necessary to become children again.
Galateo mittens are part of the Bee-Sustainable baby capsule collection, which wants to celebrate biodiversity and respect for nature.

REFERENCES: Alessio is 2 year and an half.

COMPOSITION: 95% recycled cashmere, 5% recycled wool.

WASHING CARE: We suggest to wash the recycled cashmere garments by hand, to better maintain cashmere's quality. Alternatively, you can choose a machine wash at a maximum of 30° with a gentle cycle. If you decide to wash them by hand, do firstly a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry them naturally by lying them on a horizontal surface.

The entire Bee-Sustainable Rifò collection is created by the social cooperative Manusa Knit Lab, which is based in Pistoia, a few kilometers from our offices.

The recycled cashmere we use for all our garments is GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified.

Galateo Bee-Sustainable baby mittens

Environmental impact

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.

CERTIFICATIONS: Our recycled cashmere wool is certified GRS (Global Recycling Standard).

How it was made

The Galateo recycled cashmere baby mittens are 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.

If you want to give your Rifò garment back after two years you can send it back to us and we will recycled it again. You will also receive a coupon to be used on our shop online. Visit the dedicated page for more information.
