Knitwear Lab Helps Vision Become Reality Through R&D

Knitwear Lab helps vision become reality as the creative think tank, offers capacities in the areas of R&D, design, knitwear development and production of prototypes and that too in small quantities.

The objective of the innovative projects range from medical products and high-tech sportswear to smart textiles with integrated sensors.

Sustainability activities are also part of the repertoire, such as the production of yarns from recycled waste.

Knitwear Lab also offers virtual knitting, a revolutionary method that combines virtual and physical elements of pattern development and knitwear production to reduce waste and pre-production steps.

Customers can use virtual knitting to create realistic, producible collections, simplify their design iteration processes and take advantage of the wide range of real-life colorways.

The basis for this is comprehensive knitwear expertise, the latest 3D software and the Create Plus patterning software, which was developed by Stoll together with Km.On.

Knitwear Lab operates at two locations for its diverse tasks. In Almere in the Netherlands, a total of 14 employees, including five programmers, are available for development work.

In Istanbul, there is a branch for production with a team of 16. The company has also relied on its partnership with Stoll since it was founded around ten years ago.

Both Knitwear Lab sites, each have five Stoll flat knitting machines, including models from the modern ADF range. Prototypes are produced in Almere and it also engages in small-scale production.

While, the production plant in Istanbul specialises in the manufacture of high-quality knitwear in small quantities and Stoll is also involved in the creative processes.
