When it comes to one of the world’s most polluting and exploitative industries, more and more consumers are demanding transparency. Transparency is a crucial tool in creating a more ethical and eco-conscious fashion industry and the majority of brands and retailers lack transparency on social and environmental issues. Now more than ever costumers want to know the impact that their garments have. They want to know how they're made, who made them and where they've come from. In fact, 77% of retail consumers want to know who manufactures their products... so why not show them?
Reuben Oliver is a start-up fashion brand with core values of authenticity and true craftsmenship and want to tell the stories of people and places, so how can we share them with the consumers? Digital Fingerprints is a retail experience beyond transaction that promotes transparency throughout the supply chain. Digital Fingerprints changes the
way consumers interact with fashion; connecting the world through clothing, putting the people back into products. Digital fingerprints offer end-to-end transparency to support the reinvention of the fashion industry by integrating technology with fashion. Digital fingerprints was designed for Reuben Oliver in 2019 to tell the stories of the people but the fingerprints ID technologies series can further track and
trace products from raw-material sources such as coded yarns, poised to weave transparency and traceability into the textile supply chain. The time is now for the fashion industry to embrace innovation and digital technologies with open arms. The digital fingerprints technology series can deliver enhanced visibility and quality control throughout the supply chain by interfacing with digital technologies like blockchain.
