What is seamless knitting technology?

  •  Seamless knitting technology

The production process of seamless garments requires the use of leading seamless circular knitting machines such as Santoni in Italy. All ready-made garments will be input into the machine for production according to pre-written program commands. These programs can create various knitting patterns. The products produced by such seamless machines are generally finished garments or semi-finished garments without side bones. Clothing does not need to be cut and sewn. Such seamless technology has brought major reforms to global production processes, helping many clothing companies to adapt to trends faster. This technology can directly produce finished products, greatly reducing the traditional production process. Compared with the traditional sewing process, the production cost is reduced by nearly 40%. At present, the biggest challenge is still to make many consumers understand and accept the advantages of seamless clothing.

  • Technical advantages

Seamless clothing technology has unlimited possibilities in design. As a supplier, fiber and textile manufacturers continue to improve and develop new fiber and knitting technologies. According to the structure of the knitted fabric, the pattern and structure of the garment cannot be matched with any other non-seamless garments, and the texture and compression can be combined to provide unlimited possibilities for colorful patterns, jacquard, webbing and detailed designs. The seamless technology has unlimited design possibilities. A piece of clothing can realize various weaving methods. For example, knitted fabrics can be placed side by side with net fabrics, rib knitted fabrics, and jacquard knitted fabrics. This is not possible with any other type of knitting process. The characteristics of seamless technology benefit many retailers and ultimately benefit end consumers. Once consumers try to wear a seamless garment, they will leave a distinctive impression, and the possibility of repeated purchases is greatly increased. Due to the versatility of seamless technology, local and overseas markets are continuously activated. The seamless concept can be widely used in underwear/swimwear/housewear/pajamas/ready-to-wear/sportswear clothing.

  • Price advantage

Conventional knitting machines can only produce the same pattern and still need to be cut and sewn, while seamless knitting machines can directly use yarns to knit garments, so that the production cost is greatly reduced.

Since conventional knitted fabrics need to be cut, seamless garments greatly reduce the cutting process and make more profit.

  • Fit body shape

The seamless garment fits the body precisely, creating a clean appearance.

Seamless workout set fits your body shape better, with fewer stitches, making the body contour more streamlined.

The softness of seamless knitted fabrics combined with antibacterial and moisture-wicking yarns creates the best features for sportswear.

  • Comfort

The seamless product is not tight during exercise because of its flexibility. The garment has fewer seams, making the body more comfortable during exercise.

As consumers' requirements for comfort and appearance increase, sewn garments are prone to wrinkles and rubbing, while seamless garments eliminate bulky elastic bands and enhance comfort in shaping.

At present, the main seamless clothing products are underwear/outerwear/sportswear/shaping suits/swimsuits, all of which are highly elastic, high-quality fibers, stretchable and soft, so they are more comfortable.

  • Quality and durability

In addition to providing consumers with higher comfort and fit, the seamless technology greatly reduces the cost of the cutting process, saves time, and has high output and can respond quickly and produce on time.

Seamless clothing has no waist/side bone loss, and high-component recycled fibers (such as nylon) are more durable.

This wide technical applicability (effective combination of separation) can be flexibly applied to the field of customized clothing, which can better reduce production losses.

Compared with traditional worker cutting, seamless clothing can reduce labor time by 30 to 40%.
