Capri is a soft charmeuse fabric made in micro polyamide. The fabric is soft and lightweight (180 g/m²). It consists of 80% Polyamide and 20% Elastane. The use of Xtra Life LYCRA elastomer makes it highly chlorine-proof, sun cream and oil resistant and gives it an excellent shape retention power. The two-way stretch fabric features a perfect fit and a delicate shaping power. Capri is also UV protective (UPF 50+). It is mainly used for clothing (underwear, swimwear, sportswear).
