Japan's Fast Retailing to make on-demand knitwear with Shima Seiki

TOKYO, July 13 (Reuters) - Japan’s Fast Retailing Co , parent of the Uniqlo chain, said on Friday it was stepping up co-operation with Shima Seiki Mfg Ltd to produce on-demand knitwear items.

Uniqlo already sells knitwear items made with Shima Seiki’s whole-garment knitting machines, which produce seamless items of clothing and is expanding its range.

Uniqlo customers can currently order custom-made items such as shirts and jackets. The company did not provide a timeline for when on-demand knitwear would be available. (Reporting by Sam Nussey; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
