Wholegarment knitting

Wholegarment knitting is a revolutionary and state-of-the-art knitwear system developed by Shima Seiki, of Wakayama, a company that owns 13 subsidiaries based in countries like Korea, Italy, USA, UK, China, and Spain.

Serving at the forefront of knitwear technology, Wholegarment offers an alternative to conventional knitting methods in that products developed using this technology are knitted in one whole piece and offer excellent advantages such as softness, lightweight comfort, improved stretch and mobility, and minimal yarn consumption.
