The origin of Ferre recycle cotton yarn within its final apparel products can now be detected and validated thanks to its new partnership with Aware traceability technology.
The aim of the new partnership is to make it easier to trace recycled yarn and determine its sustainable credentials.
As Luis Pita, CEO of Ferre yarns explains: “We want to share the traceability and sustainability performance of our products to drive positive change and meet consumer demand for true transparency in fashion.
The process involves Ferre recycled yarns being embedded with Aware tracer particles and each production batch being tokenised on public blockchain. The Ferre yarns can be scanned and identified throughout the whole supply chain, including final products. The digital tokens follow the physical yarn on blockchain until the final product to validate mass balance and impact claims.
