The half organic half recycled sleeveless Polo Shirt
The Helen polo shirt is dedicated to the famous 1930s tennis player Helen Wills Moody, who was the first to use a comfortable women's sportswear. With her style she shortened the skirts, long until the ankle, and freed the female players from uncomfortable corsages.
How it is made
With this composition we achieved the goal of a recycled but completely natural jersey fabric. 50% is made from recycled cotton from industrial waste, while the other 50% is made from virgin organic cotton.
To create this fabric, a technique that was falling into disuse was literally dusted off. Once the dust has been removed from the machinery, the piquet is back in Prato!
Organic cotton comes from ** a non-intensive cultivation **, which does not deplete the soil and therefore requires much less water. This jersey allows to save about 84% of water, compared to a cotton genetically modified to be more productive.
Who made it
The polo shirts from Rifò are made by Paola in the family business in Prato, which is specialized in jersey.
