First we will talk about the differences between woven fabric and a knit fabric. Weft knitting is composed of interlocking loops of yarn to make pieces of fabric in various sizes (for example 24" x 24"). Weaving is the interlacing of yarns going above and below each other at right angles. Woven upholstery textiles are available by the yard on a roll, typically 54" wide.
Below is a short video that explains the knitting process in more detail as well as some footage of the machines in action.
We make a variety of different products for different applications, but on this post we are going to focus on products for the contract furniture seating market. These products range from flat pieces in various sizes to 3D pieces that fit over the chair like a shower cap to suspension knits for chair backs that don't have any foam.
