Vita by Carvico is an eco-friendly fabric for the creation of high-performance sportswear, obtained by 100% recycled materials.
Made of 78% Econyl, derived from 100% recycled materials, Vita is 20% thinner than classic charmeuse fabrics, and smooth and soft thanks to the use of multifilament polyamide; thanks to such features, garments made with Vita fabric are comfortable and soft and therefore ideal to be worn even during the most challenging sport activities.
Vita is a compact and breathable material, and boasts an excellent modulus and also ensures the correct muscular compression, reducing the production of lactic acid, consequently promoting a faster recovery after sport activities.
Their high level of elasticity and excellent shape recovery power, contribute to guaranteeing comfort, perfect fit and freedom of movement for the final user. Vita fabric has brilliantly passed all the rigorous tests foreseen by the Lycra Sport by Invista and Xtra Life Lycra platforms, proving to be the perfect fabric for the creation of long-lasting sportswear garments which not only need to resist to long periods of intense activity but also have to perfectly blend comfort, moisture wicking properties, pilling and abrasion resistance and full protection from UV rays (UPF 50+).
Vita features a wide colour card comprising both the classic bright shades typical of sportswear and the trendiest nuances for 2016.
Carvico has also launched a polyester version of this fabric: Vita PL: perfect for digital printing it is available in several, exciting neon shades boasting excellent colour fastness values.
