Traceable TreeShirt from NIKIN: Transparent from A-Z

At Traceable TreeShirt It is a product that was not only produced sustainably and fairly, but also a has a unique property - it is traceable. We explain in this blog post how exactly this works and why it is important. 

The textile industry faces major challenges in terms of sustainability and fair working conditions. With the Traceable TreeShirt we are taking a significant step in the right direction. Thanks to an innovative technology developed by the ETH spin-off company Haelixa , we can produce the cotton needed for the T -Shirt is used, traceable. 

Traceability thanks to natural DNA 

For several years we have been together with our partners Ecos, Gebana  and Haelixa involved in the “Traceable TreeShirt” project. The secret lies in a natural agent developed by Haelixa : this agent is sprayed onto the organic cotton and serves as a DNA marker. It leaves an invisible mark that is still present on the finished T-shirt. This allows us to understand exactly which farm the cotton comes from and how it made its way through the entire supply chain. From the bush to the finished product

From fast fashion to fair fashion 

The textile industry has long relied on the concept of fast fashion, which has led to enormous environmental and social costs worldwide. With the Traceable TreeShirt we want to set an example and show that there is another way. The focus is on fair conditions for the farmers in Burkina Faso, where the certified organic cotton for the Traceable Shirt is grown.

An important step towards transparency

In addition, with your order you are setting an example for transparent supply chains. You show interest in the entire production chain of your Traceable TreeShirt and deal with it. The Traceable TreeShirt is available in four colors at Gebana and will be delivered in fall 2023.
