From the ECOLIFE YARNS® series by Belda Lloréns, in partnership with Good Earth Cotton® and FibreTrace®, BeStitch presents the E*Retrace30® yarn with recycled European Flax® linen.

4 May 2022

“The best way to impact the planet is simply not to.”
.

BeStitch, in the path of circularity, is the first Portuguese company to provide a line of products with 30% of recovered linen, resulting from the full use of the textile waste generated by its own production process.
.
A carbon neutral yarn is obtained by combining the reclaimed linen with another excellent fibre, Good Earth Cotton®, the only carbon positive and traceable cotton production on the planet. All Good Earth Cotton® is backed up by the power of FibreTrace® technology, providing full traceability.
.
Produced by Belda Lloréns, and according to oeko-tex standards, a luminescent pigment is incorporated in the E*Retrace30® yarn, which authenticates the fibre at every stage of the global chain through real-time verification and quantification, providing total transparency throughout the production chain.

ABOUT FIBRETRACE®
The core of FibreTrace® technology is a luminescent pigment patented product that is incorporated into the raw fibres (or optionally in the wiring) and it is tracked, verified, and audited in real time on each stage of the global textile supply chain. This is achieved through a FibreTrace® Bluetooth® handheld scanner that identifies and quantifies pigments in fibres, yarns, fabrics, and finished products that send encrypted data to software that has been specifically designed for the textile and apparel supply chain on secure blockchain.
.
FibreTrace® provides end-to-end traceability, results, and data in real time, hosted on a FibreTrace® platform that can be accessed securely from any Internet-connected device.
.
FibreTrace®’s mission is to ensure that all members of the supply textile chain could assume direct responsibility to reduce the environmental impact of the global industry. By doing this, they aim, ultimately, at providing the consumer with the opportunity to choose a transparent and sustainable supply chain to follow and buy.
