Italy-based warp knitting seamless (WKS) specialist Cifra SpA has reported a sharp escalation in its manufacturing orders for some of the world’s leading sportswear brands with sportswear business up around 20 per cent just in 2016.

The company is currently producing between 10,000 and 15,000 pieces of sportswear and athleisure per week, whereas previously, the company was completely focusing on the fashion sector with seamless warp knitted fancy hosiery being its specialization.

With current slowdown in the hosiery market, Cifra decided to make the strategic move into sportswear, which now accounts for 70-80 per cent of the company’s output, producing for brands like Adidas, Lululemon Athletica, Falke, The North Face, Diadora, Biotex, Decathon and Zerofit. The booming athleisure trend, which combines casual fashion and sportswear, has been a real bonus for Cifra.
