Dynamic lifestyles and a frantic pace. In an increasingly fast world, we need to redefine the concept of comfort. This is why Carvico has rewritten the rules of contemporary design by presenting its Lifestyle collection of fabrics for interior design at Heimtextil 2020.

Elasticity, resistance, breathability, versatility and countless options for customization: these are the main features which make Carvico fabrics ideal for the interior design market.

Convertible, smart, multifunctional, and innovative, Carvico performance fabrics for furniture and design have been inspired by new trends and translate high tech performance into new shapes and styles to blend elegance and functionality with Made in Italy quality and excellence.

Original, function and innovative, Carvico Lifestyle collection features 3D textures and countless colors, strong and compact surfaces, fluid and comfortable velvets with a silky and sexy hand feel, cutting-edge, high performance fabrics conceived to enhance shapes and volumes.

A selection of unique performance fabrics which, thanks to their bi-elasticity and resistance are ideal to cover furniture elements, to design whole rooms and complements. Extremely versatile and adaptable, handy and comfortable, easy to remove and to wash and fast drying, pilling resistant and shape retaining, they represent the perfect mix of quality, beauty and functionality.

Carvico performance fabrics for the interior design market can be chosen in their standard version or the bonded, thicker and more compact one. Moreover, the addition of waterproofing membranes and treatments make them suitable also for the outdoor universe.

Beautiful, functional, high performance and with a green spirit. The Lifestyle collection includes several eco-sustainable fabrics, made of regenerated polyamide yarn from pre-and post-consumer waste materials (ghost fishing nets, carpet fluff and tulle) which, at the end of their useful life, instead of being sent to the landfill, are recovered and regenerated through a complex physical-chemical process. This is how ECONYL® polyamide is produced to be then used for the creation of high quality fabrics.

For over 50 years, Carvico Spa, a global leader in the production of warp knitted fabrics headquartered in the district of Bergamo, has been offering a fast and accurate service, aimed at satisfying the needs of both Italian and International interior designers, buyers and trendsetters who wish to express their creativity and tell different lifestyles through precious, high performance materials.
