Each & every part of our supply chain has been carefully assembled over many years to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
In the words of Kelly Slater, 11 times world champion surfer, “By collecting fishing nets that are used in the production of ECONYL® regenerated Nylon yarns, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans we love so much”.
Ghost fishing is a term used when fishing gear has been lost, dumped or abandoned.
Once discarded, they catch & kill marine life, attracting more marine life, creating a vicious circle that could last for thousands of years. Nobody knows the actual life of Nylon once discarded in the ocean.
Carvico, from Italy, is the world’s largest manufacturer of plain dyed Active/Yogawear fabrics. Their recycled range, named Vita Power & Renew, is produced from Nylon & polyester yarn purchased from ECONYL® in Italy. Xtra Life Lycra is added, giving the fabrics their stretch & flexibility, offering a soft hand feel with compact and breathable, with a high UV protection of UPF 50+.
Almost all of Carvico’s fabrics are available pre-dyed in various plain colours. Vita PL is the only fabric used to print in Bali via local sublimation machines.
REPREVE™ from the US is world-famous for the production of recycled fabrics used for plain dye, digital & sublimation prints. REPREVE™ is 100% recycled and produced from post-consumer waste, such as discarded Nylon carpets and salvaged plastic bottles. The texture & feel of digital print on REPREVE™ is the highest we offer, with colours being far richer & deeper than anything available in Bali.
