The geometric shawl Gunta
How it is made
Rifò shawls are made with recycled cotton from industrial pre-consumer waste and 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. In addition, a recycled cotton shawl reduces ecotoxicity by 78%, i.e. harmful substances dispersed into the environment.
Who made it
Rifò shawls are woven by David with the help of Gabriele in Prato, with looms that have been in operation for more than 50 years!
