Vita: a classic turns into avant-garde

After having been launched as the ideal partner for competition swimwear, Vita by Carvico has now been awarded two important certifications: LYCRA® BEAUTY and LYCRA® BEAUTY for Swimwear by Invista
We all know that fabrics featuring a LYCRA® BEAUTY certificate can make a different when used to create last generation Shapewear items. We are talking about fabrics with proven shaping and smoothing properties which also offer  comfort, style and quality and can satisfy the requirements of the most demanding consumers of a sector which is constantly evolving.
Vita by Carvico is a technological jewel, an excellent product stemming from the best and most cutting-edge production processes  and the most valuable raw materials. Made of Econyl® – a 100% regenerated multifilament polyamide yarn coming from post consumer materials, the last addition to the Carvico collection is 20%  thinner than classic charmeuse and much softer, for an extremely pleasant fit and hand feel.
Excellent power and high stretch meet the perfect fit and maximum freedom of movement. 
The LYCRA® BEAUTY certificate for swimwear was conceived to identify high performance fabrics which can ensure the same benefits offered for shapewear, but with the extra plus of an extreme resistance to chlorine and suntan oils. Several lab tests carried out simulating the actual conditions of use of beachwear garments have showed that Vita is highly resistant to suntan creams and oils.  This is particularly important when the action of chlorine is matched with the corrosive power of suntan creams and oils which accelerate the degradation process of fabrics. Vita by Carvico has proved to have a 240 hour useful life.
