Tailorlux is an interdisciplinary innovator in the field of luminesence and spectromerty. With this combination Tailorlux managed to become a technology leader in product authenticitaion and traceability. Starting with a strong footprint in Inks and injection molding, mainly for the German Automotive industry. Tailorlux patented a system that integrates luminesent tracers in extraordinary small amount to a material, which can be traced/ authentified by a handheld sensor. This technology was brought to the textile business by enriching a cellulose slurry to create a marker fiber that was injected to a ginning facility to trace organic cotton. The unique selling proposition of this product is the handheld sensor that can deliver a result within seconds from fibre to fashion.
