Watch: Changing the Future of Fashion with Blockchain Technology.

Technology is the key to a future of transparency. Provenance is a UK based tech company who is using blockchain technology to expose supply-chain transparency.

In collaboration with designer Martine Jarlgaard, Provenance championed a world first by tracking garment production from start to finish. The information was made accessible via the garment’s smart label -a QR code on a regular garment tag which accessed the journey from raw material to manufacturing.

‘Every supply chain requires the input from numerous people working to produce one item. It is much too complicated to trace this using person-to-person communication which is where the advanced technology come into play.’

This collaboration serves as proof that blockchain implementation in fashion supply chains can work.

A beautifully produced piece.
