DNAS, A&E work on platform to detect fake sewing threads

US firm Applied DNA Sciences (ADNAS) is collaborating with American & Efird (A&E), one of the world’s leading manufacturers and distributors of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread, and technical textiles, to develop an anti-counterfeiting sewing thread platform, according to MeiLin Wan, the former’s vice president of textile sales.


Many products, from running shoes and performance athleisurewear to bespoke suits, can benefit from a secure sewing thread. The platform under development will address counterfeiting, but more importantly assure quality and integrity to the brands with a forensic, secure and effective solution, he told FibretoFashion in an interview.

Applied DNA Sciences is a provider of molecular technologies that enable supply chain security, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technology, product genotyping and DNA mass production for diagnostics, personalised medicine and therapeutics.

Asia, a very important market for textile, has a problem with counterfeit products, he added.
