FibreMark Solutions, which specialises in the development of supply chain traceability solutions for the textile industry, has obtained a significant US patent associated with the design of its revolutionary Fibretrace technology. The patent, US Patent 10,247,667 B2, issued for the ‘Photon Markers in Fibre material’ (Fibretrace), is dated April 2, 2019.

An EU patent is pending for the Fibretrace technology and represents another step forward in pioneering a transparent, traceable and sustainable fashion industry.

“We are on the cusp of a new era of transparency and traceability and at a time where the global fashion industry is re-examining its approach to traceability and transparency. Our technology allows companies to have full confidence in the integrity of their brands and supply chains”, Danielle Statham, a representative of Fibretrace said in a company press release.

Not only does Fibretrace deliver end-to-end traceability, but also real-time results and data is transferred to the Fibretrace blockchain. In this way, we deliver brands the tools they need to meet consumers’ driving passion for change. Invented by Paul Stenning, FibreMark’s inventor and head of product development, Fibretrace is the solution to the need for a reliable, real-time tracer of fibres through the entire supply chain, from the farm to the consumer and into recycling. Stenning turned to the application of fibre technology in security papers for inspiration and developed the solution for all man–made fibres with trials conducted at The International Cotton Association Bremen.

Fibretrace is led by a team of experts and innovators in the textile supply chain. The team includes Danielle and David Statham, operators of the world’s first carbon-neutral cotton farm in Australia; Sanjeev Bahl, a board member of The Sustainable Apparel Coalition and founder of Saitex International, the cleanest, most-sustainable denim manufacturing facility on the planet; and Andrew Olah, founder of the Kingpins denim supply chain trade show and the Transformers summit series, which focuses on environmental and social responsibility and sustainability in the denim industry.

Fibretrace is a specially-constructed natural cellulose fibre that contains minute rare-earth particles as part of its construction to create a fully traceable smart fibre. The fibres are converted into slivers to give it the flexibility to mix the fibres at early stages of the supply chain.

Each master-batch of Fibretrace signatures are made specific to each client. Fibretrace has gone through rigorous testing and has no direct effect on textile processing. The result is a full traceability programme for all natural, man-made and synthetic fibres that delivers a range of significant and important traceability options as part of a brand’s sustainability programme. Fibretrace delivers data in real -time with the additional benefit of authentication - solving counterfeit issues for brands. (GK)
