Italian knitted fabrics producers Carvico and Jersey Lomellina are, once again, exhibiting at PGA 2020, the international trade fair devoted to golf, a sport which has millions of followers across the world. Here the companies talk about their latest collections.

“Golf is synonymous to accuracy, technique, endurance, performance and elegance. All such characteristics contribute to make fabrics created by Carvico and Jersey Lomellina absolutely unique and unmistakable; this year, the two companies are, once again, exhibiting at PGA 2020, the international trade fair devoted to a sport which boasts millions of lovers all over the world.

The two businesses, headquartered in Bergamo, are the market leaders in the production of stretch warp knitted and circular knitted fabrics and are going to take to Orlando the best of Made in Italy applied to golf.

Ultralight, breathable, comfortable and high performance fabrics, ideal for the creation of casual and stylish garments designed to satisfy every sportsman. Wraparound and comfortable, these fabrics follow the silhouette without constraining it and ensuring maximum freedom of movement.

All fabrics by Carvico and Jersey Lomellina are pilling resistant and UV protective and, thanks to their exclusive shades and textures, make garments look high tech but also refined.

Fashionable, comfortable, high performance and eco-friendly, such fabrics are produced following a sustainable corporate and production policy aimed at safeguarding our planet. Water recovery, reduction of the fumes released in the atmosphere, independent production of electrical power: everything complies with the companies eco-friendly vision.

And that is also the logic which has led to the creation of several green fabrics such as Vita, Vita Power, Vita Suede and Revolutional Eco, Xlance Eco for Carvico and the Renew Family for Jersey Lomellina. These products are all made of ECONYL, a regenerated polyamide yarn from pre and post-consumer materials (ghost fishing nets, carpet fluff, tulle etc.) which, at the end of their useful life, instead of being sent to the landfill, are recovered and regenerated through complex physical-chemical processes.

Quality, techno-features, performance and eco-sustainability: these are the key words when it comes to Carvico and Jersey Lomellina fabrics which are a winning choice for the production of garments for golf, a complex and challenging sport which does not only require accuracy but actually is synonymous to accuracy.
