Smart Garments with RAIN RFID!

Maximizing the benefit of RFID for the entire product life cycle!

The RFID yarn was designed and brought to series production by ’s engineering team. The yarn was able to demonstrate a high performance at a garment manufacturer two years ago. From that moment on, all efforts were focused on the manufacture and the industrial ramp-up of the RFID yarn.

Now, the E-Thread technology is protected by 20 patents. A miniaturized passive RAIN RFID tag is invisibly embedded in the yarn material and can outlast the entire product life cycle. The yarn with RAIN RFID differentiates itself from competing products by its small form factor and ease of implementation in a variety of materials. The objective: To offer brand owners additional usage options – complementary to classic tracking and tracing.
