Knitwear is a must in our wardrobe. But do you know how knitting goes and what type of machines the big brands use in the industry to give life to their knitwear designs? Today we take a trip into the wonderful Knit Lab, a special place where we work so that our knitwear comes to life!
The textile industry has evolved a long way and today the flat-knitting machines come in 3 forms depending on the way of execution:
- Panel knitting - This is the most wasteful method as approx. 30% of fabric is lost in the process.
- Fully Fashioned - doesn't require cutting. This is a waste free method.
- Whole Garment – no cutting or sewing is required. This is the fastest way to go but also the most expensive and complicated to do.
The photos below will take you through the process of what it takes to make a simple knitted design. Enjoy, we sure did! Form Follows Feeling.
