L.I.T.® / A Smarter Ecologically-Sound Solution

It is our nature to protect nature. As one of the world’s most prominent textile manufacturers, Kingwhale is dedicated to lowering its impact on the earth. That’s because mills such as ours are instrumental in clothing a significant portion of the global population. We believe we’re beholden to something greater than ourselves.

We recognize that many popular production processes today make a big impact on the earth. Textile manufacturing can be quite wasteful, relying on excess energy, water, and dyestuffs, but we also know full well that this overconsumption of resources can be avoided smartly. That’s why Kingwhale developed L.I.T® (Low Impact Technology), an intelligent textile-based platform.

High quality performance fleece engineered by L.I.T®.

Low Impact Technology Engineered For Eco Efficiency

Kingwhale’s L.I.T® is engineered for maximum performance while minimizing environmental impact. The production process significantly reduces environmental waste, using 60% less water, 50% less thermal energy and 22% less electricity, all the while creating a textile your consumer can count on in terms of quality and sustainability.

One of our proprietary yarn technology, AlloFiber®, is an important element in achieving these results. By Changing the molecular structure of the yarn, AlloFiber® can be easily dyed at lower temperatures than conventional polyester yarn.The decremental temperature means less time and water needed in the dyeing process, resulting in less waste and less energy consumption. This eco-friendly manufacturing method is complimented by automation, digital technology and customized ERP system creating a smart eco-efficient technology platform.  

L.I.T® offers an optimal state in yarn production without sacrificing critical features of comfort, softness, stretch, breathability, heat transfer and durability. At Kingwhale, advancing sustainability by utilizing fewer resources doesn’t mean compromising performance integrity.

“Sustainability has and will always be the cornerstone of our brand. At Kingwhale, we develop the highest performing products, all the while abiding by the highest environmental standards. We know the world’s best apparel brands choose their fabric suppliers carefully, and responsible production is a key deciding factor for them. But we don’t just promote sustainability to win their business. We do it because it’s right.” – James Huang, President
