COTTON USA™ and Oritain™ have signed a partnership to provide forensic verification of origin for all U.S. cotton. Oritain’s unique method applies forensic science to detect trace elements in the cotton itself.

Cotton can be tested at any stage on its journey from farm to shop floor, giving buyers assurance that the product has not been substituted.
