SHIMA SEIKI is a leading fashion tech solutions provider dedicated to delivering a digitally
optimized value chain for the fashion industry.
An established fashion technology innovator, SHIMA SEIKI is known particularly for its
realistic virtual sampling technology. Based on actual yarn data, fabric simulations
generated on its SDS-ONE APEX series and APEXFiz software are unparalleled in quality
and photo-realism. Simulated fabrics are output in a format compatible with a variety of 3D
software and can be of great use in 3D virtual sampling projects. Being an industrial knitting
machine manufacturer, SHIMA SEIKI's specialty is knitwear, but the sublime quality of its
virtual fabrics is a common denominator in digital materials that span textiles, embroidery
and towels as well, allowing smooth communication for digitally bridging the gap between
the studio and factory across various fields.
SHIMA SEIKI is also famous as pioneer of WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology wherein
a garment can be produced three-dimensionally in one entire piece without sewing, using
only the minimum amount of yarn required to knit a single garment. Combining
WHOLEGARMENT with virtual sampling, only SHIMA SEIKI is capable of providing a total
solutions package for sustainable fashion.
