The second is called Roica Innovation, where visitors can find the latest textile performance innovations from the brand’s partner mills.

The Roica Feel Good family promises a new level of performance and freshness. The Roica CF yarn is designed to deliver an odour-neutralising durable function in wash and wear, because its active ingredient is locked inside the yarn and only requires a modest percentage to perform in most fabric structures. Finally, a new Roica Stretch Energy is a verified heat-generating system that combines a customised Roica polymer with special fabric structures where a stretch and recovery action produce warmth, maintaining support during exercise.

The third dimension is called Roica Closet. In this zone visitors can explore new Roica garment designs from the company’s experimental laboratory.

“Also at our Roica booth, you will be able to explore sister brand Cupro innovations, designed responsibly for a new, luxe view of athleisure sportswear,” the company reports. “Today, the Roica premium stretch brand sets the highest quality standards that are uniquely specialised and certificated perfectly focused on responsible performance for the active sportswear, swimwear and athleisure wear categories, making it the smart-fit for the ISPO Brandnew village presentation.”
