GCS Tracking System (CATS)
The Cashmere Tracking System (CATS) was developed to create greater transparency and traceability in the textile value chain. All orders can be traced back from the finished product to the cashmere producer.
Only certified cashmere producers and farmers who have successfully completed the audit process are integrated into CATS, where individual balances of GCS-certified cashmere are recorded. Using this asset-balance account, registered spinning mills can source cashmere and fulfil GCS orders. Currently, no other standard in the cashmere industry provides such a comprehensive system. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
GCS offers a unique marking system that ensures greater transparency and traceability throughout the textile chain.
Through its partnership with Tailorlux GmbH, GCS enables its trading partners to make their certified raw cashmere directly traceable by marking the fibres. During the dehairing stage of the production process, minuscule quantities of luminescent pigments (materials that emit light) are integrated with the fibres; this does not affect the quality, purity, colour, or further processing of the cashmere. The marked GCS cashmere can then be conclusively identified at every stage of the supply chain by means of a specialised handheld scanner. You can find more information here.
