“We are at the crossroads of a sustainable paradox. Everybody is talking about sustainability & transparency, but nobody really follows a clear path. We at ARMEDANGELS have Nothing to Hide! since 2007 and we believe that transparency is here to stay. Our aim is to become even more transparent to our customers and to give them even more insight into our supply chains and the numerous activities we undertake – from our own ARMEDANGELS Organic Cotton Cooperative in India to the knitters and sewers in Portugal. Cooperating with retraced and not only showing off transparency, but also real-time traceability of single products will be a gamechanger.” - Lavinia Muth, Corporate Responsibility Manager @ ARMEDANGELS

Joining forces to promote more transparent supply chains was a no-brainer. The new pilot project to trace, map, and communicate the supply chain journey of a a fan-favorite, the LAALE organic cotton t-shirt, through its supply chain and all the way down to the smallholder farming cooperative in the state of Gujarat, India. The project will provide everyone with a clear view into the t-shirt's supply chain journey, highlight the materials used, the partners involved, and the overall impact.
