The fiber identification technology used by Lenzing for Lenzing Ecovero branded fibers provides physical identification of fiber origin at different stages of textile products such as the fabric and garment level. The extension of the technology to Tencel branded lyocell and modal fibers, is a further step by Lenzing AG, Lenzing/Austria, to providing supply chain transparency along the entire textile production process.
The system enables full traceability of the fiber, protects from counterfeiting and provides assurance to brands and retailers that their products are made from Tencel branded fibers. It also guarantees that the fibers are produced in state-of-the-art-production facilities that meet high standards for resource efficiency and environmental and social responsibility.
Fiber identification will be a vital part of the fabric certification process within Lenzing E-Branding Service. As of November 2021, all fabrics will be tested for fiber identification, enhancing the security of Lenzing’s online services and testing facilities and increasing transparency and security between value chain partners. By the first half of 2022, additional services for brands and retailers will be integrated onto Lenzing E-branding Service.
