What goes into 3D knitting?

Curious about why your shoes are so comfy? Each pair of Rothy’s is made with the innovative technology of 3D knitting. Knitting our shoes to shape helps you get that perfect fit each and every time—and reduces the amount of waste we create. Let’s break it all down so we can see how we build it all up.

3 ways 3D knitting makes an impact:

  1. From technical to organic fibers, the fabric options are endless. 
  2. Precision plus technology means that we’re able to create the exact size we want, cutting out excess waste.
  3. The outcome? A seamless knit for an instant fit. 

We’re especially proud of our 3D knitting technology because it minimizes excess fabric. By knitting to shape, we eliminate the need to cut small pieces of fabric from larger ones. Little scraps of fabric waste may not seem like a big deal, but add them all together and they become a huge problem.

Apparel waste is a global problem. With the rise of fast fashion comes the rising amount of waste in landfills. That’s why we’re passionate about reducing waste—and creating styles that are sustainable, washable and made to last. 

Sustainability is knit into our DNA. And that’s just the way we like it.
