Sustainable Fabrics

We work with Carvico and Jersey Lomellina to supply premium, high quality fabrics that are made exclusively in Italy.

 

These fabrics are mainly used for leggings, sports bras, activewear tops and shorts.  

Why should you choose Carvico and Jersey Lomellina fabrics?

Carvico and Jersey Lomellina are committed to producing sustainable fabrics without compromising on performance and aesthetic characteristics. Their fabrics are made from recycled ocean pollution, ghost fishing nets, nylon waste from landfills and recycled plastic bottles.

 

Fabric characteristics include: breathability, piling resistance, shape retention, muscular compression, soft, UV protection, two-way stretch and non see-through.  

Journey from waste to wear. No waste or new resources. 

How are they made?

1. RESCUE

Waste pollution is collected from around the world, like fishing nets, carpet flooring and industrial plastics

2. REGENERATE

Waste is sorted, cleaned and purified to recover all possible nylon back to its original form as virgin nylon - but this time its regenerated!

3. REMAKE

Regenerated nylon is processed into textile and performance yarn for use in making garments again
