Carvico’s best-sellers now offer even more exciting performance with Xtra Life LYCRA® fibre

With names that evoke breathtaking marine locations and a vast range of wonderful colours inspired by holiday locations, Malaga, Morea, Rodi and Sumatra are the wonderful best-selling swimwear fabrics from Carvico, the perfect expression of Made in Italy quality with its unequalled technical content, performance and style.

The timeless charmeuse, a great favourite that’s the pride of the extensive Carvico range, is now more innovative than ever thanks to the use of Xtra Life LYCRA® fibre. This innovative product developed by INVISTA for the swimwear world creates unique fit, long-term shape retention, chlorine resistance – up to ten times more effective than fabrics made with ordinary stretch fibre – and high levels of protection against the damaging effects of the unsaturated acids contained in sun creams and oils. These exciting new features give Malaga, Morea Rodi and Sumatra incredible new performance for swimwear that combines outstanding looks with unique functionality.    

These fabrics offer high added value, and this value is expressed through exceptional product quality and the outstanding efficiency of the services Carvico provides – prompt assistance and expert consultancy services supported by state of the art logistics. Warehouses located in Hong Kong and Australia mean rapid delivery of these extraordinary Made in Italy creations is always assured. 

The presence of Xtra Life LYCRA® fibre makes Carvico’s four best-sellers, Malaga, Morea, Rodi and Sumatra, even more distinctive, with a wider range of ground-breaking new benefits.
