Regenerating  is possible!

Rifò is an Italian startup whose aim is to create a sustainable production model, we regenerate textile fibers to make new trendy clothes and accessories.

Today it is so easy to get dressed, there are so many beautiful clothes at a low price. But we can do better – we can dress in high-quality and fashionable clothes while taking care of our planet!

  • The problem

Global manufacturing companies produce more than they can sell, resulting in huge amounts of waste. In addition, in the EU alone, over 80% of old clothes are thrown out with household waste and end up in landfills or incinerators. These two factors result in millions of tonnes of textiles waste worldwide.

To address this problem, we need a sustainable production model which reduces the quantities of hazardous chemicals and the enormous consumption of non/reversible resources.

  • Fortunately we have a solution!

Thanks to a mechanical and craftsmanship process developed in the textile district of Prato (our city) more than 100 years ago, we are able to turn fabric leftovers into new clothes and accessories with identical qualities to the original products. This method allows us to recycle the leftovers and sensibly reduce the amount of water and chemical products used in the production.

  • Our products

We produce a fashionable product line of high quality winter accessories made entirely in Prato using 100% regenerated fibers. Our line is composted with: hats, scarves and gloves.

It is time to act! To dress with fashionable and sustainable clothes and accessories! Help us to promote our new project!

We’d appreciate it if you could contribute with a Facebook post or a tweet about the launch day. The first moments of the campaign are crucial...This would help us to make Rifò better known, and also succeed on improving the innovative ideas that we are working on for a healthier environment.

Rifò and its products are made with 60% regenerated cashmere wool and 40% regenerated wool. Rifò tells the story of the city of Prato, an Italian textile district renowned worldwide for regenerating textile fibers. It also originates from the discovery of its designer, Niccolò, who, after almost 3 years in China, Vietnam and India, realized the extent of the overproduction problem, especially in the clothing industry. Inspired by the profits of the ‘Made in Italy 3.0’, Rifò has become the story of Niccolo’s team, which dreams to realize a traditional and innovative circular economy.
