WAKAYAMA – A leading textile machine builder has been selected by the Japanese government as one of several innovative companies that are tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as outlined by the United Nations.

The move to select Shima Seiki – a leader in advanced flat knitting technology – as an example of innovation around SDG goals, comes in the run up to the UN SDG Summit later this month, which review progress of implementation of SDGs by participating national governments.

Shima’s ‘WholeGarment’ technology can produce an entire garment without seams, using only the amount of yarn required to knit that item – saving substantially on waste.

The company also produces sophisticated 3D design and modelling software that can avoid the need for the production of actual knitted samples, helping to optimise inventory levels and reduce consumption.
