FibreTrace and Säntis Textile Join Efforts on Traceable Fibre Technology
Traceable fibre technology company FibreTrace has partnered with textile technologies company Säntis Textiles with the aim to become the leading physical and digital transparency solution for recycled and circular textile solutions.
Säntis Textile will utilise the partnership to create a unique traceable ID for its RC0100 fibres, yarns and fabrics. The RC0100 technology converts pre-consumer industrial waste and post-consumer cotton garment waste to produce 100% recycled cotton yarns free from chemical processes and regenerated fibres.
The partners hope to future proof supply chains and to provide the end-consumer with a transparent and sustainable supply chain.
Säntis Textiles creative director Annabelle Hutter explained: “With an increased appetite from brands around the globe wanting to adopt more circular approaches, we are keen to support ongoing steps towards enhancing the longevity of the industry as well as the planet for the greater good of future generations.
“A core part of our growth strategy is developing fibre tracing technology for our one-of-a-kind recycling technology, RCO100, so we’re delighted to be working with FibreTrace who are leaders in this field to help to develop this. This project, alongside many others, are going to help shape the future of textile circular solutions.”
FibreTrace chief operating officer Crispin Argento added: “Through its partnership with FibreTrace, Säntis Textiles has taken a bold first step toward full transparency throughout its entire production process from recycled feedstock to the final garment for its pioneering RCO100 products. Using the power of the FibreTrace digital and physical transparency solution, Säntis Textiles will refine the future of circularity in textiles.”
