Our Fabric Suppliers

Italian Carvico, the world’s largest swim & Activewear fabrics manufacturer, buys its recycled yarns from ECONYL®, who produces new yarns from salvaged ocean waste such as discarded fishing nets & plastic bottles. Carvico then adds Xtra Life Lycra to give the fabric its superb stretch. Almost 100% are purchased in plain colours. 

American REPREVE is globally famous for its super soft recycled fabrics, offering some superb body-enhancing properties requested by some of the largest brands globally. Repreve is produced from post-consumer waste, such as carpets & plastic bottles, selected for both plain & prints.

Chinese Huading produces some amazing recycled yarns to compete against other more famous overseas suppliers offering very similar attributes & a super soft hand feel. We add their yarns to such fabrics as Eco Rib, Reclaim Prime & generic Lurex.

A must for designers!

We offer three packs: Active, Swim & Natural. Each pack includes one real swatch of each fabric displayed on either website.

With a pack to hand, you’ll be able to feel each fabric & its textures as well as being able to select your colours that much easier
