The Wel-Trak™ certification means every fiber in the products you purchase can be tracked right to the source—the very farm where it was grown. These farms are located in Egypt (Egyptian Cotton), Australia (BCI Certified) and the western United States (Supima Cotton).
The cotton fibers are “fingerprinted” and verified in the fields by an independent authority, Oritain Global Ltd. Oritain’s scientific technique identifies natural chemical parameters that are unique and distinctive to the cotton’s environment. This creates a one-of-a-kind “cotton fingerprint” that is unique and travels with each product. The information is coded and stored in a database. It can be tracked from start to finish, forming the strongest system of supply-chain integrity in the textile industry. And, it’s your way of knowing you can trace the authenticity of cotton products every step of the way.
