Cifra, a leading Italian company in Warp Knit Seamless, has chosen ROICA by Asahi Kasei, an international reference for premium and smart stretch, for a new generation of clothing dedicated to wellbeing, travelwear and athleisure, made with Cifra’s exclusive and patented technology in the name of uniqueness and sustainability.

Cifra’s offer will include innovative garments for men and women that combine fashion and function, guaranteeing optimal comfort at any time of the day. Also on show will be base layers, tops, leggings, jumpsuits made with natural yarns, or recycled pre and post-consumer yarns in combination with Roica EF, the first recycled stretch yarn certified Global Recycled Standard (GRS). Cifra will offer design and performance with responsibility.

“The design of the garments, created in Cifra's design office, combines a perfect shape with body mapping technology that creates dedicated ventilation zones for a feeling of comfort and freshness as well as an innovative aesthetic impact,” the Milan based company says.

“And when it comes to comfort, Roica activates a new generation conversation linked to the demands of the contemporary consumer looking for well-being in line with the concepts of safety and healthiness emerging in all aspects of daily life.”

“In fact, Roica by Asahi Kasei is the secret stretch ingredient of the modern wardrobe, able to ‘activate’ garments by giving comfort, beauty, quality together with responsible and certified values.”

All of this translates into the synergy of development with Cifra. The products, the materials that compose them, along with the way of production and who produces them, transparency and traceability are all aspects that become an integral part of the common proposal that Cifra and Roica are able to offer by joining forces.
