BERGAMO - Leading Italian businesses, Carvico and Jersey Lomellina, which produce high-tech knitted fabrics for swimwear, sportswear, underwear and outerwear, have announced their participation in the Healthy Seas initiative which works to up-cycle marine waste for new textile products. The brands will use 100 per cent regenerated Econyl yarn, made from pre- and post-consumer waste, such as fishing nets recovered by the Healthy Seas initiative.
