Fashion for Good, together with Textile Exchange, have created a detailed analysis for benchmarking physical tracer technologies relevant in the textile industry.
The Textile Tracer Assessment is a comprehensive overview and user guide designed to accelerate the understanding and implementation of tracer technologies across the fashion and textile supply chain.
Part 1 analyses the claims made by both the forensic and additive tracer companies on the capabilities tracing different fibre and material types in the fashion supply chain.
Part 2 analyses the claims made on the application processes of the tracer technologies within the fashion supply chain, focusing on one main element and various sub-elements.
Part 3 analyses the claims made on the detection processes of the tracer technologies within the fashion supply chain, focusing on two main elements and various sub-elements.
Below are descriptions of the tracer companies interviewed and their associated tracer technologies
