Behind 5B

About Our Fabric

All of 5B Swim & Sport is made with Carvico Vita and Vita Power fabric made with ECONYL® regenerated nylon.

The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible. Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as fossil-based nylon and has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. This regenerated nylon is then processed into yarns for fabric, like your swimwear and sportswear.
