The latest result of the extraordinary, on-going research in Carvico’s laboratories is Igloo:
the new techno fabric in super opaque white polyester designed to wrap around and protect
the athlete’s body like a second skin while providing total freedom of movement.
The fabric’s innovative structure gives 80% more coverage than a traditional white product
of the same weight. Ideal for transfer printing, Igloo guarantees an optimal yield from all
printed colours and ensures an extraordinary brilliant white. It keeps its excellent elasticity
also after printing processes, and offers high resistance to abrasions.
Igloo was conceived for swimming and watersports in general and also designed for
sportsmen and women who prefer to compete in brilliant white garments. The inclusion of
Xtra Life LYCRA® ensures exceptional resistance to chlorine, perfect fit and no loss of shape
over time. Highly elastic, Igloo sculpts and moulds the body contours, protects against UV
rays (UPF 50+) and resists abrasions and pilling.
