WONDER, NOTHING MORE
Be simple, be perfect, be Wonder. Study, analysis and research have taken Wonder to extraordinary new heights in every field of application. The new image is strong, yet harmonious, striking the perfect balance between hi-tech and style.
WONDER by Jersey Lomellina is a truly modern fabric. Eclectic and versatile, it meets the most diverse range of requirements, no matter how special. It has captured the sportswear market with its feisty and dynamic character. It is tonic and agile for fitness and fresh and young for everyday underwear. It is a fabric with a thousand faces and infinite applications, which has attained outstanding results in terms of performance too. Champions of some of the toughest and most technical sports are wearing it, including swimming, sailing, skiing, cycling and running champs.
The technical sports world now has a new and powerful ally: Wonder.
JL has enhanced this fabric to its full potential: it is soft and comfortable, compact and opaque. It guarantees total 50+ protection against UVA and UVB rays. Its special structure allows natural perspiration evaporation (Moisture Management), which means the fabric dries quickly, whilst keeping the body temperature constant. Wonder provides a perfect fit that models the wearer’s figure without being constricting, thus improving performance. It is totally easy-care, may be hand or machine washed at 40°C and needs no ironing.
The fabric colour card (made up of around 50 colours) has been completely overhauled and works in perfect harmony with its cutting-edge, decisive and dynamic character.
Wonder provides just the right combination of fashion and technology: it meets market demands for stylish and trendy garments, yet maintains high performance and long lasting quality.

JL RESPIRO: fabric in action
Airfit, Airskin and Mesh: new ideas and a new perception of comfort.
The three polypropylene fabrics of the JL Respiro family are hypoallergenic, bacteriostatic, insulating and breathable and create a light yet impenetrable barrier even in the most extreme conditions.
The fabrics provide perfect protection against wind, rain, sun and cold. They maintain the athlete’s body temperature constant, transferring moisture towards the outside and by means of their highly insulating properties, they prevent muscular pain caused by changes in temperature.
Their insulating capacity is unique and even superior to that of wool. They absorb only smallest amount of water – just 0.05% - and are 167 times more breathable than cotton.
They are pleasant to the touch, comfortable, ergonomic, have an UPF of 50+ and work in harmony with sports needs. JL Respiro family fabrics are light and abrasion resistant and represent 100% technology for extreme active and competition sports.
They are environmentally friendly because they are easy clean and easy care fabrics.
The fabrics are pre-dyed, so they do not absorb colour and do not run. Washing whites and coloureds together is no problem and the coloureds are even resistant to submersion in salty water. No additives or aggressive detergents are required for washing, so they support the protection of the environment in that sense too.
