Turns GmbH launches new traceability project for recycled cotton products


A prominent player in the circular textile industry in Germany, Turns GmbH has launched a project to advance traceability and transparency for recycled cotton products. Launched in collaboration with Tailorlux GmbH, this project highlights the commitment of both the companies to sustainability by leveraging European post-consumer textile waste and physical traceability solutions to create fully circular products.

Through its partnership with Tailorlux, Turns integrates cutting-edge tracer fibers and high-resolution spectroscopy to accurately track and verify the recycled content in every textile product. This innovative approach ensures that every step, from fiber to yarn to fabric is physically verified, providing unparalleled transparency and accountability.

The pioneering project was initiated at the Altex recycling plant in Germany, where post-consumer waste clips from across Germany are meticulously sorted and processed. Altexplays a crucial role in transforming these discarded textiles into high-quality Turns recycled fibers.

Once spun into yarn, these eco-conscious fibers are woven into sustainable fabrics. Meeting stringent environmental standards, these fabricsare then fashioned into stylish garments that embody the principles of circular fashion. Each garment is embedded with Tailorlux traceability technology, ensuring that the entire journey from waste clip to finished product is fully transparent and verifiable.

The project aims to provide physical proof of recycled material content, to ensure product integrity and protect against greenwashing claims. The initiative supports the broader goals of a circular economy by promoting sustainable practices and building consumer trust, says Tobias Herzog, Managing Director, Tailorlux
