Convertible Recycled Jeans Triangle Guia
Guia is a convertible garment/accessory. You can use it as a light keffiyeh-style scarf, or as a top to wear as you like.
COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibres. The recycled yarn gives the knit a knickerbocker effect, plain but with different coloured dots.
WASHING CARE: 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.
The convertible triangle is knitted by Lena and Bruno, located 10 km from our show room, with a denim yarn recycled in Prato.
The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans we use is RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) certified, this guarantees its traceability and sustainability.

The convertible knitted top triangle
How it is made
The knitted triangle Guia 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 accessories 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.
To make each Rifò denim accessory 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.
Who made it
Rifò recycled jeans triangles are truly made locally. They are made by Lena and Bruno, in their family workshop about 12 km from us. Their knitwear is now specialized in the use of recycled yarns. Even if they occasionally drive them crazy, they are a great satisfaction for them.
