The outdoor world is meeting in Denver, CO, for the largest trade fair in North America this week – Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Carvico and Jersey Lomellina, leaders in the production of warp knitted and circular knitted fabrics, will exhibit at the show, presenting the excellence of Made in Italy fabrics for the world of sports and outdoor.

Carvico will demonstrate the wet look effect of Hamptons, as well as a brand-new colour card of Revolutional Eco, with a particular focus on the renewed eco-sustainable collection Vita.

The green fabrics by Jersey Lomellina are made of Econyl, a 100% regenerated Nylon yarn from pre and post-consumer waste materials, such as fishing nets, carpet fluff and tulle, which, once they reach the end of their useful life, instead of being sent to a landfill, are recovered and regenerated through a complex physical-chemical process.

The Renew collection also includes Renew Cult, Renew Fine, Renew Prime and Renew Style.
