Preserving Nature, the one with a capital N, is no longer an option, it is now a duty. Everybody is expected to provide their contribution to spreading environmental awareness so to deliver to the next generations a green vision of our planet.
This is the philosophy behind both Carvico and JL commitment to their “Green Vision”; being global leaders in the textile sector and proud representatives of Made in Italy they have always operated trying to provide their concrete contribution to a common, sustainable future.
They have been doing so by applying sustainable welfare policies, by implementing cutting-edge production processes and backing up several serious and important projects such as “Healty Seas” - http://healthyseas.org/ - which has led to the production of their first 100% sustainable fabrics.
A “green” message that our companies are willing to spread at the Interfilière Shanghai trade fair - which is held in Shanghai on Oct. 12/13 – through the message of the General Manager of Carvico Trading Shanghai Co. Ltd who is expected to deliver a speech during one of the conferences scheduled and through the exclusive stand dedicated to their high-tech fabrics: VITA and Renew.
VITA (by Carvico) is a fabric to be experienced firsthand.
It is unbeatable for swimwear, unique for beachwear, strong when it is needed, elegant when you want it to be so. It is versatile, iper-resistant, thin, stylish, stretch, soft and especially eco-friendly.
Indeed, it is made of 78% Econyl® polyamide derived from 100% recycled material but it ensures the very same properties as virgin yarn, or even more!
Vita is ideal for the creation of high performance sportswear since it perfectly blends a green soul and a set of outstanding high-tech properties ensured by its content of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™.
Jersey Lomellina commitment to the safeguard of the environment has instead led to the production of the Renew family of fabrics: Prime, Light, Cult and Style. All such fabrics are made of Econyl®, polyamide derived from 100% recycled material.
Furthermore, the company has embarked on a real and consistent sustainability journey based on the use of recycled raw materials and on cutting down on wastes but also on the company willingness to provide its sportswear customers with extremely high performance products.
Consequently Jl Renew fabrics are both sporty and versatile and they can satisfy the requirements of the most exigent customers both in the swimming pool, on the beach, at the gym or at the park.
This year Shanghai Interfilière is also going to be taken by storm by the brand new, exclusive and stylish “Couture Collection” by Carvico and Jersey Lomellina, created by two of the most important designers of our time Angelo Figus and Maurizio Brocchetto.
“Couture Collection” is meant to be the new universal collection of Carvico and Jersey Lomellina fabrics, putting together colors, shapes and feelings. Beyond trends. Beyond outfits. Beyond fashion itself.
A unique opportunity to show, from a new perspective, how versatile their fabrics can be.
Treatments and surface effects designed by Figus and Brocchetto have enhanced Carvico and JL fabrics, and have expanded the range of the possible applications of such high-tech items.
Trousers, jackets and coats show unprecedented functions without compromising their look and hand-feel.
We are talking about a revolution: properties and functions which have always been associated to sportswear now are displayed by these new urban wear outfits in which classic items are revamped to show a contemporary look and competitive techno-performances.
The fair audience will be faced with a fabric boutique showing the countless techno-features of Carvico and Jersey Lomellina fabric and their amazing looks, designed for those new generation customers who want to be inspired before starting creating their own collections.
