By embedding a patented luminescent pigment into the raw fibre, FibreTrace® tracks, verifies and audits Good Earth Cotton® live at each step of the global textile supply chain.
FibreTrace® is incorporated into the raw cotton fibre at the cotton gin via a luminescent pigment. From here, the cotton is packed and out-bound bales are scanned prior to shipping to spinning mill, with information securely stored through FibreTrace®’s blockchain technology.
Spinner receives the FibreTrace®-integrated cotton and scans in-bound bales into facility. The cotton is then converted to yarn and again, out-bound cones are scanned prior to shipping to fabric mill.
The FibreTrace® cotton yarn is scanned in at the fabric mill to be converted into a textile. Fabric rolls are scanned again as they leave the site, making their way to be assembled or to a cut, make and trim facility.
Fabric rolls are received and scanned into their next destination, where fabric is converted into finished goods. Out-bound finished goods are scanned before being shipped to brand. Optional: FibreTrace® device can be installed at processing facility/site.
Brand receives finished goods and scans in-bound to warehouse facility/site. This concludes the primary FibreTrace® production cycle. Optional: FibreTrace® device installed in-store for customer or retail use.
Consumers can shop with confidence, knowing their purchase is genuine Good Earth Cotton®. From grower to garment, the cotton’s supply chain journey is available to the consumer. Optional: Unique QR code links consumer to FibreTrace®’s consumer facing platform.
