Tejidos Royo and Tailorlux are collaborating to build a more sustainable textile world. The new fabric, which will have markings confirming its organic provenance, is the brainchild of Tejidos Royo and German traceability solutions company Tailorlux. The businesses want to collaborate with a Spanish cotton ginner in September to put Tailorlux IntegriTEX patented technology into freshly harvested, high-quality cotton.
The demand for traceability grows in tandem with the desire for sustainable solutions. To satisfy these new needs, Tailorlux is thinking about the implementation of traceability systems.
Tejidos Royo’s Dry Indigo revolutionary foam dyeing method utilizes no water and almost eliminates toxic compounds from the denim dyeing process. The technique can prevent fraud, mixing, and untrustworthy greenwashing claims by using luminous markers that give fibers their unique “optical fingerprint.” The luminous pigments are equipped with machine-readable smart sensors that detect dilution of original materials from thread to fabric to garment.
