Elsa is a shawl made with a geometric pattern inspired by the work of the Bauhaus textile artist Anni Albers. For the designer bringing out her talent within the famous german artistic context, where some disciplines were forbidden to women, was not easy. Through our sustainable shawls we decided to celebrate her work.
How it was made
Woven with jacquard loom, Rifò shawls are made with 80% recycled cotton from industrial pre-consumer waste and 20% virgin cotton, that gives the strengh needed to this fabrics.
The positive impacts? We can save about 77% of water comparing to a virgin cotton shawl, due to a lower landfill usage and an ethical process that optimizes the resources needed. For example to make a Rifò shawl you need the equivalent of water of a 10 minutes shower, while for the same virgin cotton shawl a 45 minutes shower wouldn't be enough.
Who made it
Rifò shawls are woven by Enrico in Prato, with looms that have been in operation for more than 50 years!
