The world of swimwear fabrics

The world of swimwear fabrics is complicated: let’s face it, having a bikini body is never easy! Even after months of training and dieting, the moment to get undressed is awkward for everybody. If we also consider the effect of swimwear which don’t fit the body properly and don’t follow our moves, we will never feel at ease on the beach or at the swimming pool. That’s why all swimsuit fabrics by Carvico are engineered, designed and offered to the market after they have passed several strict physical and visual tests. We start from the choice of raw materials, strictly of excellent quality, that can transfer to the swimwear fabrics all the features needed to be selected as the ideal partner for our summers. 

Bathing suit material: the importance of the right fibers. 

When we talk about bikini fabrics and swimwear fashion in general, the premium ingredient to ensure a perfect wearability is definitely the elastomer

In Carvico and Jersey Lomellina swimsuit fabrics only the best elastomeric fibers available on the market are used: fibers which resist the action of suntan creams and oils twice as much as standards. Moreover, our collection comprises several swimwear fabrics types which, thanks to their innovative construction, are sand resistant too: no more grains among the fibers! 

Swimwear fabrics: bright colors over time

Swimwear fabrics have to maintain their beauty over time: bright and solid colors are fundamental to prevent our beachwear or swimsuits fabrics from looking too vintage (even when vintage is  the hottest trend!) 

Every color recipe created by Carvico and Jersey Lomellina is designed to ensure the highest color fastness values (i.e. resistance) when swimsuit fabrics are exposed to light, repeated washings (find out more about swimsuit fabric washing guidelines), sea and chlorinated water, in compliance with ISO and US certifications which are used as references by our customers.

Our collection  comprises various, very diverse types of fabrics and Lycra swimwear fabrics combining innovation, comfort and eco-sustainability. If you want to know more about organic swimwear fabrics and our commitment to sustainability, you can find all information here
