Verifying Origin

Providing clients confidence for the origin of their SUPIMA® Cotton.

We validate the extra-long staple SUPIMA® cotton, used in Theory's Good Cotton, all the way from the point of origin where it was grown to the mill in Italy where it is responsibly woven into cloth.

Traceability like no other.

Oritain’s unique methodology applies forensic science and data to detect naturally occurring elements in a product or raw material. Soil composition, climate, altitude and other environmental factors all reveal the details of a product’s origin - which we call an Origin Fingerprint.

Once we’ve created an Origin Fingerprint, it can be used to audit our clients’ products at any point in the supply chain - to clearly differentiate the legitimate from the fraudulent.
