Sustainable Measures

Nowadays, the textile industry is faced with many problems such as harsh labor conditions and environmental pollution. SHIMA SEIKI has been proposing various measures as solutions to these problems.

Waste-Free Production

Usually, knitwear is produced by knitting each part (front body, back body and sleeve, etc.) separately and sewing them together. In contrast, SHIMA SEIKI’s WHOLEGARMENT knitwear is produced in one entire piece three-dimensionally directly on the knitting machine, prevented wasted material such as cut loss and seam allowance. Our state-of-the-art MACH2XS WHOLEGARMENT machine evolves even further with the dual comb used for fabric takedown that eliminates the need for waste knit that was previously required for knitting short sleeves to make up for the length difference between body and sleeves. By reducing wasteful yarn consumption environmentally friendly “ideal knitwear” is realized.

Future of Manufacturing

SHIMA SEIKI's manufacturing concept realizes digitization, mass customization, and sustainability. With the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system at its core, the TOTAL FASHION SYSTEM realizes effective communication among the processes of planning, production and sales through smooth workflow and feedback of key information. Speedy, Smart and Sustainable manufacturing realizes an Industrial Renaissance that help customers find success.

Friendly to the Earth, to Mankind and to Other Creatures


WHOLEGARMENT is knitwear produced using only the minimal amount of yarn necessary to produce just one garment without wasting resources such as cut loss.

Virtual Samples

Super realistic high-definition virtual samples produced on the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system can eliminate wasteful consumption of resources by putting a stop to the recent tendency to "mass-produce" samples during the sampling stage.

Synergistic Effect with WHOLEGARMENT and Design System

WHOLEGARMENT and design system work together to form a synergy that optimizes product inventory, preventing unsold goods from becoming incinerated or sent to land fills.

Manufacturing proposed by SHIMA SEIKI leads to conservation of the global environment by reducing CO2 emissions and slowing down global warming, giving endangered species such as polar bears a better chance of survival.
