Italian term or phrase: involitiva
The text is an editorial discussing the problems of the textile sector.

"Per i dettaglianti meno, per loro la materia prima è altamente relativa, per il consumatore poi è piena contraddizione o pignolaggine eccessiva o assoluto disinteresse basta che il vestito piaccia, poi del tessuto chi se ne frega. Dramma o evoluzione **involitiva** lasciamo il tessuto a se stesso, così com’è basta e avanza badiamo piuttosto al prezzo del capo finale, questo si che conta, altro chè!"

regressive, retrograde - sort of reverse evolutio? Instead of evolving and developing, it's going backwards with regards to qualtiy.

I checked with the client and you're quite right - it's a typo. It certainly makes more sense this way!
