IGLOO: for athletes who demand an always brilliant white - Intertextile 2009 (Shanghai)

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.
