Cifra, leader in warp knit seamless production presents an innovative merino wool oriented project at ISPO Munich 2018 to be held from January 28 to 31. Warp Knit Seamless, among the most recent in textile innovations, is undoubtedly one of the most significant. It has to do with the new way in which seamless is now perceived, both in terms of production technique and product, as against how conventional garments are usually made on circular or rectilinear machines. The fact that there are no seams is what prevents skin irritations from occurring and the ventilation openings make it so that moisture stays under control, with the apparel still conforming perfectly to the body like a second skin.
This new generation of sportswear is ideal for training, yoga, cycling, running and for numerous other sports. Cesare Citterio, CEO of Cifra Spa reveals, “With a production capacity of around 10,000 clothing per day, combined with special know-how, Cifra leads the way in terms of style, but also in production volumes, so much that over the course of 2017 turnover grew by over 70 per cent and with recent investments made in new machinery our position has been strengthened even more. Our design department, with its ten CAD stations creates new, customised models every day for the most important brands worldwide, in both fashion and sports related sectors.”
Among the advantages of WKS technology, three fundamental aspects must absolutely be highlighted: The absence of a diameter — the jacquard system allows for diameter sizes to be decided upon at will. Different diameters can be worked at the same time ex: body and sleeves, and gloves or leggings The garments are warp-proof — due to the WKS technique, garments are more wear resistant, and in the case of holes or tears the warp-knit mesh material still does not fray.
