This high-performance swimwear lycra is made from recycled plastic water bottles that were destined for landfill.  

Vita by Carvico is an Italian-made, sustainable techno-fabric, made of a ECONYL® regenerated Nylon that turns waste problems into fashion.

It's a top-quality swimwear fabric that is proven to last.

It's lighter than our other activewear fabrics but still fully opaque with great elasticity making it perfect for hot days on the beach or by the pool. 

You can also combine it with our super-soft recycled swimwear lining fabric.
