Décor and retraced want to support the biggest players in the fashion industry in building transparent supply chains.

The partnership is building a supply chain traceability tool that will provide retailers and brands with visibility and transparency regarding the supply chain and the origin of the materials, including the ability to retrieve all relevant documents required to prove the origin of the fibers. These parties will create an enterprise-wide platform solution that will help those involved in the supply chain capture and gather the verified records required for risk assessment, reporting and compliance management.

Michael Cai, Director of Operations & Supply Chain at Décor, describes this as “the next evolution in supply chain management.

We see considerable potential in retraced and its platform. This partnership not only enables us to be more proactive and automated data management in our supply chain, but also to provide traceability details instantly to our brand and retail partners through a robust reporting function. What used to take days to search and consolidate documents can now be done in seconds. “

This announcement follows a successful 6 month pilot phase. retraced has integrated the most important partners in Décor’s supply chain into the company’s own platform for sustainability management and helped to digitize and automate the documentation process. In order to meet both current legal requirements and future market requirements for the transparency of the fiber supply chain, the two companies decided to scale the project to ensure that Décor’s supply chains and materials will be fully traceable.

The tool will be live and accessible worldwide in April 2022. In August 2022, Décor and its partners will be able to access all the necessary information about compliance for their supply chains.

“We started working with our brand and textile partners in 2019 and realized that companies needed a way to trace their production and find out where their products are made. Traceability is critical to understanding supply chain accountability and we always had this in mind when we built retraced, “says Peter Merkert, co-founder and CTO of retraced.” Now regulators and governments are making traceability and risk monitoring mandatory for the industry Our partnership with Décor is the perfect starting point for an enterprise-grade traceability solution that eliminates unnecessary and impractical bells and whistles and directly targets an industry-wide transparency problem and specific business compliance requirement. “

“Transparency is vital in the ever-evolving dynamics of the fashion industry. In addition to the legal requirements in the various countries to which we deliver goods, global consumers’ expectations of the way a product is made and what it is made of are increasing, “explains Michael Cai, Décor.” Responsible and transparent sourcing practices Supply chains are not trends, they are expected. For a company that sources and manufactures materials around the world, our job is to lead by example and take our supply chain partners on the journey. For Decor, it just doesn’t work It’s about regulatory compliance. It’s about being a responsible global role model “
