ART

Knits in a Hundred Colours

UNIQLO knitwear is available today in a kaleidoscope of colours - we craft each hue by expertly blending high-quality dyes.

Every season our colour palette is inspired by lifestyles, extending beyond fashion trends so our offerings can be integrated into everyday life to meet the challenges it presents.

SCIENCE

The Future of Knits

WHOLEGARMENT represents the future of knitwear, enabling carefully calibrated and beautiful three-dimensional silhouettes for outstanding design and comfort. These seamless items are made using the advanced knitting machines of Shima Seiki.

WHOLEGARMENT knitwear is affordably priced in keeping with UNIQLO's commitment to ensuring form, function and fashion are accessible to all. We hope that everyone enjoys the installation and the video demonstrating our knitting and manufacturing process.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Excellent Quality and Value

UNIQLO knitwear is carefully fashioned by skilled craftspeople. Consistently high standards are applied to each stage of the manufacturing process, from the sourcing of raw materials to spinning, dyeing, knitting, washing and inspection. While traditional craftsmanship is required, we have also adopted the latest technologies and methods in mass production to ensure we can consistently deliver large quantities of high-quality items.

This video presents the interior of a factory in China that embodies the LifeWear philosophy of supplying the best knitwear to people everywhere.

FASHION

Perfect Styling

While simple, UNIQLO knitwear is also comfortable, with designs and attention to detail that ensure that each item looks fabulous on the person wearing it. Because of the sophisticated designs, people can coordinate various colours and enjoy layering to create individual looks, making LifeWear loved among millions.

Knitwear is available in different materials, designs and colours, including Uniqlo U knits from the UNIQLO Paris R&D team led by Christophe Lemaire. This winter you are certain to find styles that match your mood.
