VANCOUVER – Textile Exchange has partnered with blockchain technology provider TextileGenesis in a pilot scale study that will assess the feasibility of mapping the chain of custody in wool and viscose supply chains.

TextileGenesis is once again working with Lenzing – which it recently collaborated with to demonstrate the ease with which transactional information can be logged on an immutable, decentralised database – as well as German brand ArmedAngels and its native wool supplier the Schneider group to gauge the benefits of logging data in-line with Textile Exchange’s various standards, including the Recycled Claim Standard, Global Recycled Standard and Responsible Wool Standard.

Amit Gautum, founder and CEO of TextileGenesis caught up with Ecotextile News at the ongoing Textile Exchange sustainability conference and noted the looming complexities of this effort. Regarding challenges surrounding fabric blends and how to track these transactions, he said “this is something we definitely need to investigate further as we start connecting the pilot with the Schneider Group. These are some of the key things as part of the pilot for us to iron out.”
