For our swimwear we chose a fine Italian fabric made from recycled materials.
Vita by Carvico is 78% Recycled PA | 22% EA is a sustainable techno-fabric, made of a ECONYL® which is regenerated Nylon that turns waste problems into fashion and interior solutions. Vita is versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, elegant, stretch, soft and breathable: a unique mix of muscular compression and comfort. Thanks to it's innovative construction, it’s twice as resistant to chlorine, suntan creams/oils than competitors’ fabrics.
For the Valentine Dress, we selected a lightweight Tencel fabric which is a 100% Lyocell. Lyocell, better known as Tencel, is a fiber made from the wood pulp of trees that are grown and replaced on specialized tree farms. Unlike most cellulosic fabrics, Tencel is produced using recyclable, Earth-friendly solvents. When blended with cotton, Tencel adds wrinkle-resistance and the lustrous feel of a silk.
