Traced and secure from grower to garment.
Good Earth Cotton® embraces FibreTrace®’s advanced transparency technology to combine physical and digital traceability with block chain authentication. FibreTrace® provides brands and retailers with true custody of supply, the ability to quantify and audit fibre, with access to primary impact data for natural and man-made solutions in real-time. 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 fibre.
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 block chain technology.
The spinner receives the FibreTrace®-integrated cotton and scans in-bound bales into facility (or adds FibreTrace® sliver during spinning process).
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 can be installed in store retail for customer to use or for returning and collecting pre-owned products for authenticity and circularity.
