Are Any Tags Designed to Be Sewn Into the Hem of a Garment?

Posted By RFID Journal, 04.29.2013

Is there any RFID fiber or yarn that has been put to practical use for the purpose of textile manufacturing?

I have seen a few tags that are designed to be sewn into a garment's hem, but I am unsure if anyone is actually selling the tags. Checkpoint Systems offers a pocket tag that is in the form of a textile label that can be sewn into garments. The tag operates at temperatures between -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees to +185 degrees Fahrenheit). TexTrace also offers a tag that can be sewn directly onto a product, survive washes and remain largely invisible as an RFID tag (see Luxury Apparel Maker to Test TexTrace's Fabric RFID Label). And SmartRes offers a tag set in a thin layer of glue, thermal-transferred and attached to fabric, making the tag an imperceptible part of the final product.
