Abstract [en]

Total Knit fashion is a flat knitting manufacturing company in one of the suburbs the city of Osaka. Managing Director Kushiura tells us that the Osaka area has been one of the main districts for knitted products in Japan and most companies used to mass produce low price garments for retail chains in Osaka, Tokyo and other big cities in Japan. Five years ago Total Knit Company decided to change the production from cut & sew and fully fashion to complete garment production in order to be more efficient and to be able to compete on the market. Now the company has 35 modern Shima Seiki Whole garment machines in house for the production of women wear for the domestic market mainly retail shops in the Tokyo area. The gauge range of the knitting machines are 5 to 15 with 17 of the machines in 12 gauge. This article shows an example of a fashion manufacturing company from Japan with complete garment production.
