Digital pioneers of change in the textile industry "textile trust" - a blockchain for textile supply chains
For us, there are two fundamental developments that will shape the future: Sustainability and Digitalisation. In 2017, KAYA&KATO started to bring clearly certified products to the market. In the meantime, our aprons, chef's jackets, shirts, trousers and tunics have been tested by numerous certificates.
The blockchain-based platform "textile trust" was developed in a joint project between KAYA&KATO and IBM and supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Currently, "textile trust" maps selected steps of textile production processes.
With the blockchain-based platform "textile trust", the value chain of a textile can be mapped with just a few clicks. Using a simple app, all producers involved in the production process can transmit the data in a forgery-proof manner. For this purpose, the data is recorded in blocks and stored in the form of an unchangeable, chronological chain. If an asset changes ownership, this is visible within the blockchain. Production standards and certificates can also be transmitted in a forgery-proof manner at every stage of production. At the end of the textile supply chain, a QR code is generated that informs manufacturers and customers about each production step of the textile.
