Our main focus of work is Weft Knitting, a method of forming fabric also called flat knitting, and popularly known as 3D knitting or Flyknit.
This technique has endless possibilities. Our technicians use a software to instruct the machine what to do in every section of the upper. Everything from the material, the shape, the patterns, to the thickness, it can all be changed in different areas of the piece in order to get a multifunctional textile engineered to fulfill any requirement.
The thickness in a knitted material is directly related to the Deniers of the yarn.
Deniers: weigh in grams of 9Km of thread.
Each type of yarn comes in different Deniers depending on its composition, that means that we need to join several spools to achieve the thickness needed.
The most common Thickness used for footwear with 12 gauge machines is 600D but we can modify this number depending on the requirements of each design.
We have implemented this knitting technology in many different fields such as lifestyle and performance shoes and boots, women's footwear, security and medical shoes, backpacks and accessories such as hats or training gear, gloves, masks and even sports bras.
The reason, as explained before, is the fact that you can use various different materials in different areas while knitting the pieces out the machine already in shape without the need of sewing.
