A major player in analytical testing across the world Eurofins Textile Testing Spain has signed an agreement with Tailorlux, a Germany-based full-service provider for product authenticity to digitize cotton tracing by using an enriched viscose fibre. Both have signed a contract with Kipas to enable digital transaction certifications for over 3,000 tons of recycled yarn. Through this, retailers and brands will be able to procure recycled products with an ensured ratio of recycled content based on production data.
The agreement also provides Eurofins access to the Tailorlux algorithm to quantify the recycled content in textiles to audit the technology and test its reliability. Through further data acquisition, the composition of textiles can thus be determined with increasing precision and their ecological footprint be calculated.
Tailorlux provides authentication and traceability solutions with covert markings that are inseparably linked to the product. Through its interdisciplinary expertise in light emitting materials and detection, Tailorlux contributes to making transparency, authenticity and traceability a reality in value chains of various industries. For textile applications Tailorlux provides a polymer or viscose marker fibre that can be traced throughout the supply chain.
