Carvico and Jersey Lomellina have announced their participation in ‘Healthy Seas, a Journey from Waste to Wear’ initiative. Having always focused on preserving the environment, Carvico and Jersey Lomellina are aware of the fact that implementing a sustainable production policy is no longer a choice, but a must in today’s world. This led to the selection and use of the 100% regenerated ECONYL® Nylon, made from pre- and post-consumer waste, such as fishing nets recovered by the Healthy Seas initiative.

Healthy Seas aims to recover discarded fishing nets from the seas and to send them to Aquafil to regenerate them into high-quality ECONYL® yarn, which Carvico has subsequently turned into their iconic Advanced Recycled VITA Nylon Xtra Life LYCRA®.

All waste material made from nylon 6 has a potentially infinite life, because thanks to its chemical properties it can be regenerated and returned to its original form. This procedure can be repeated a never-ending number of times without any loss of quality or performance. Healthy Seas together with the ECONYL® brand offers consumers a responsible choice of products which tell the powerful story of the journey from waste to wear. The cooperation with Carvico and Jersey Lomellina allows the initiative to spread the word to a new market of consumers. 

Contribute today by switching to our Advanced Recycled VITA Nylon Xtra Life LYCRA® fabric made with ECONYL® that is a 100% regenerated nylon from pre and post consumer waste such as fishnets and other end of life nylon materials. Our stock line range boasts 53 on trend stock colours for you to choose from.

Surreal Nature: 
Exploring a hyper-real perception of nature, seeking the super-natural through eco-tropical paradises.  Hyper texture and hyper exotic inspiration is key, portrayed in unexpected patterns that are hypnotic with movement engaging the senses.  Colours appear altered, hyper-real, almost synthetic complimented by a dark summer base due to the blurring of seasons and globalization.

Urban Cultures: 
With borders and continents blending, Urban Cultures reflects a global outlook giving a feel of shared identities.  Picture East meeting West with a sprinkle of spice knitted together with underlying global connections.  With a cultural outlook, colours reflect a spice box with fragrant intensity, combined with baked dark early tones.  Alongside pure porcelain blues, a rich spicy palette is created with a China Re-make twist.

Future Elements:
Look to the past but be influenced by the future. Earthy elements are re-created into modernized effects by blending the boundaries between nature and technology. Time worn surfaces with oxidized metals compliment mesmerizing crystals facets tainted by sulphur in mint undertones are portrayed in 3D forms.  Duality is defined as brown becomes rustic with deep oxide tones. Touches of green sulphur with white highlights herald the beginning of brighter days.

Virtual Youth:
Individuality and creativity are mixed with reflective and off-set moire effects, giving you a rule-breaking story influenced by the youth clubbing and art culture.  Gender, age and boundaries are blurred embracing unexpected designs that are reconfigured with exuberant energy. Colours are all about mixing and mismatching electric pastels with dark shadows giving you an intriguing palette that makes you look twice.
