The most significant innovation in Candiani's history occurred in 2020, when the COREVA™ stretch technology was invented and patented.

A pioneering solution for a circular fashion system

After five years of research and development, we found a solution to replace synthetic stretch yarns with a plant-based compostable stretch denim fabric. Boasting the same aesthetic appearance, stretch performance, and durability, this fabric has radically changed the way that jeans can be dealt with at end-of-life, which is one of the biggest challenges in the fashion industry today. within the fashion sector. Through circularity-focused pilot projects, we have explored how the compostable fabric interacts with agriculture, soil, and food.

The first compostable stretch denim fabric

COREVA™ owes its stretch performance to a natural rubber yarn that replaces synthetic petroleum-based yarns. Conventional stretch yarns can take hundreds of years to decompose and contribute to microplastic pollution. Thanks to the elimination of all synthetic components and a unique vulcanization process, COREVA™ is the first compostable* stretch denim fabric in the world that is free from plastics.

*COREVA™’s compostability was initially tested and confirmed according to test methods of ISO 16929:2019 and EN 13432:2000 Annex E/AC:2005.


Fabric look

It is our intention to make COREVA™ become the only technology for our stretch denims.
Therefore we have developed a wide range of fabrics with different aesthetics and performances in order to satisfy most of the fashion industry’s needs. Starting with authentic vintage denims, with a marked ring effect and a strong salt and pepper aesthetic, up to fabrics with a refined, sophisticated look for the everyday jean.
