Create a range of designs with seamless knitting technology and combine stitches, structures, yarns and colours in a single piece of fabric.
Minimises textile waste
Seamless knitting technology creates apparel almost free of seams with minimal textile wastage.
Seamless knitting technology can combine stitches, structures, yarns and colours in a single piece of fabric.
Seamless textiles can be engineered for unparalleled performance attributes in sportswear.
Seamless garment technology, introduced during the 1990s, is increasingly being incorporated into both circular and with CAD compatibility. This is extending the opportunities for fine wool yarns in the activewear and outdoor market segments.
From footwear to high-end fashion or medical shapewear, seamless knitting technology is now evolving in its applications, entering high performance sportswear and intimate apparel. The opportunities are endless.
How it works
Seamless knitting technology is unique in its ability to combine different patterns and knit stitches, in different colours, into a single piece of fabric. The technology can engineer a garment to have features such as compression and breathability points on a single surface, which encourages greater structure diversity and comfort, along with enhanced protection and reduced product failure compared with seamed garments. The technology also introduces intricate and interesting patterns that contour the body.
