The René knit top with adjustable straps is made from yarn obtained by recycling old jeans. This short cotton top is made with the very unique stitch that looks like something out of grandma's wardrobe, but with a breathable and contemporary design.

  • Adjustable straps
  • Openwork braided stitch
  • Speckled pattern, due to impurities resulting from the recycling process
  • Weight 170 gr

COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibres. The recycled yarn gives the jeans jersey a slightly knickerbocker effect, plain but with different coloured dots. 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: The denim yarn of our knitted garments behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to the original fit by washing it at 30 °. If you decide to wash it by hand, firstly make a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry it in a natural way by lying it on a horizontal plane: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.

This summer knitwear garment in recycled jeans is made by Matteo in his workshop in Pisa, where high quality small productions come to life.

The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans we use is RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) certified, this guarantees its traceability and sustainability.

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.

The René perforated knit top

How it is made

The knitted top René is made from old denim fabrics transformed into a new yarn. Its composition is 80% recycled cotton, 15% virgin cotton and 5% other fibers. Rifò jeans garments are almost unique pieces and cover all shades of blue, because no further industrial dyes have been used to make it, and the colors came directly from the old pair of jeans.

Environmental impact

To make each Rifò denim garment we estimate that they have been recycled from two to five pairs of old jeans consuming only 80 liters of water, against the 3000 required by an identical virgin cotton garment. The result is a reduction of roughly 87% water consumption, 77% energy and 93% CO2.

How it is made

This garment was made by Matteo in his knitting workshop near Pisa.

Together with the whole team, in this small but very accurate company every phase of the design and processing is followed, putting all the love and know-how possible into every single product.
