The 36th edition of Milano Unica took place in Milan (Jan 31 - Feb 2). The exclusive twice-yearly event, gathered the leading and high-end companies in textile and accessories sectors from Italy and Europe.

The theme of the open ceremony—Traceability as a game changer for textiles, centred on blockchain and traceability. Insightful speeches were given by a panel of speakers. Traceability was highlighted in the future trend of Made in Italy of the textile-clothing sector. Through technology and blockchain, the products’ origin, authenticity, and quality can be verified and guaranteed along the entire supply chain.

Thanks to our project consortium member Sistema Moda Italia (SMI), TRICK is honoured to be introduced by Mr Sergio Tambori, the President of Sistema Moda Italia during the ceremony. Sergio spoke about the challenges the industry is encountering and the needs to implement traceability throughout the supply chain. This is why and how the TRICK project is working on leveraging blockchain to promote traceability and to support the value chain to combat the greenwashing issue, and prepare for the digital passport of the product.

In the TRICK project, SMI contributes to the development of a circular economy roadmap by collecting and providing the requirements about the traditional and technical textile-clothing sector from its associates and liaising with other European organisations. SMI also plays an essential role in dissemination and communication of the results to its associates and the participation in important textile exhibitions in Europe to promote and foster meaningful relationships.
