FLAT KNITTING TECHNOLOGY
Our primary focus is weft knitting or flat knitting, a method of creating fabric that is also popularly known as 3D knitting or Flyknit.
This technique has endless possibilities. Our technicians use specialized software to program the knitting machine with detailed instructions for every section of the upper. Everything from the material, the shape, the patterns, to the thickness, can be fine-tuned in different areas of the upper to get a multifunctional textile, engineered to fulfill any requirement.
VARIETY OF PRODUCTS
Kinno Design has implemented this knitting technology in many different fields, such as lifestyle and performance shoes and boots, women’s footwear, security and medical shoes, backpacks, and accessories such as hats, training gear, gloves, masks, and even sports bras.
MEET THE KINNO DESIGN TEAM
Hi! My name is Jordi Montaner, founder of Kinno Designs. I would like to personally thank you for your interest, as well as encourage you to contact us should you have any questions or requests.
HOW WE INNOVATE
Our innovation comes in many forms: a new idea, new business models, new materials, new processes, or a new knitting structure. It can be viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements. There may or may not be a market for it, and maybe the industry isn’t ready yet.
We always look for meaningful innovation, exploring every direction we can imagine.
THE CREATIVE PATH
Our experience working in China taught us that innovation can come from little changes that have a huge impact on the industry. The kind of improvements that can be easily implemented and mass-produced. This innovation comes with intimate knowledge, everyday experimentation, and trial and error.
In order to innovate, we are continually researching other knitting techniques, different manufacturing methods, and fields other than shoes.
