Project Statement:

HBI is seeking to create an innovative tee shirt using the SHIMA SEIKI knitting machines. The student team will create a whole garment tee that is “zoned” with different high‐performance yarns. The garment will be benchmarked to existing product lines available on market and identify opportunities for the advantageous use of the SHIMA SEIKI knitting process. The process will be evaluated for its ability for mass production.
