Galeries Lafayette launches 100% traceable clothing line
The Fashion Integrity range is 100% traceable
French department store retailer Galeries Lafayette has taken a step forward in its responsibility policy by introducing a 100% traceable fashion collection.
Launched this week under the umbrella of the Galeries Lafayette brand, Fashion Integrity is a collection of products the retailer says are fully traceable, from the harvesting of the cotton to their arrival in store.
The French fashion group says the Fashion Integrity brand was established as a challenge to the group's employees to produce garments that could be traced in their entirety. The new range comprises five modern wardrobe staples – a round, V- or turtleneck T-shirt, a skirt and a loose top – all made from organic cotton.
"By knowing every step in the production chain, Fashion Integrity ensures that the production and processing conditions respect the men and women producing the items, as well as everyone's health and the environment," Galeries Lafayette explains.
Consumers can scan the QR code on the items' tickets or visit the company's website to find all the production details of the clothes.
