    To preserve the integrity of the REPREVE® brand and ensure that fabrics and products made from REPREVE® are traceable, transparent and certifiably sustainable, Unifi is introducing the U TRUST™ verification program. U TRUST is a comprehensive certification program that is designed to provide REPREVE® customers with a new level of transparency. As part of the U TRUST program, the company is introducing FIBERPRINT™ - a unique technology allowing for enhanced traceability in fabrics and products.
