‘Leading environmentalists see the end of most sea life happening within the next 6 – 16 years’ (Parley for the Oceans). A shocking statistic demonstrating one of the dramatic effects of pollution.

We source our fabrics according to function alongside sustainability. Our active and swim range is made with Econyl®, a recyled fibre made from abandoned fishing nets and other post consumer waste.

The Econyl® yarn is woven with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ which is up to 5 times more durable when exposed to chlorine, salt water, UV and suncreams than comparable swimwear fabrics.

We believe in buying better and reducing over consumption. This is why we make strong products for the purpose of intentive sport that will last over time.

” Vita by Carvico: our sustainable techno-fabric, made of 100% regenerated polyamide deriving from pre and post consumer materials. Vita is versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, elegant, stretch, soft and breathable: a unique mix of muscular compression and comfort. Thanks to its innovative construction, it is twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan creams and oils than competitors’ fabrics.”
