the bluesign® SYSTEM
Founded in 2000, the bluesign® SYSTEM functions as a sustainable textile production solution that eliminates harmful substances from the beginning of the manufacturing process, and later sets and controls standards for an environmentally friendly and safe production. This not only ensures that the final textile product meets very stringent consumer safety requirements worldwide, but also allows brands in the outdoor, sportswear and fashion industry to offer sustainable products to their consumers.
Haelixa is a traceability solutions provider who makes it possible for brands and manufacturers to mark and trace products from farm to retail. By creating a unique fingerprint for each party involved, we provide a forensic proof for the origin, authenticity and integrity of products. Our data is highly reliable, because we turn the product itself into the carrier of information about its origin and journey using a marker based on DNA that is solved in liquid and then applied to the product. The marker is harmless for humans and the environment, does not affect the properties of the product and is yet robust enough to withstand all industrial processing.
Integration of Haelixa
The Haelixa solution for textile fibers (i.e. cotton, wool, cashmere, silk, etc.) can easily be integrated into existing automated production processes. The read out can be done with the final product or any intermediate product with a simple test. And the results of the test can be uploaded into existing ERP or blockchain solutions.
What if you could stop used clothes from ending up in dumpsters and instead capture the value of their precious raw materials? Regenerate them into beautiful, new, textile fibers that look and feel like cotton. That’s what Infinited Fiber Company’s technology does. It turns cellulose-rich materials – like old clothes, used carboard, or rice straw – into unique, biodegradable soft fibers: Infinna™.
Founded in Finland in 2016, Infinited Fiber Company is on a mission to make circularity in textiles an everyday reality. The regenerated Infinna™ fiber is currently created out of 100% post-consumer textile waste. It has been proven to work beautifully on its own for 100% regenerated yarns and fabrics and to blend easily with other fibers.
The New Cotton Project
The New Cotton Project is an EU-funded consortium of brands, manufacturers, suppliers, innovators, and research institutes, set to demonstrate and define a blueprint for circular fashion. Infinited Fiber Company is leading the project, which also aims to inspire further, even bigger circular initiatives in the industry.
