There’s a New Zip in Town ’23


every couple of years we try to add a new zipper style to our repetoire and since the last time we added a new zip was in 2021, I’ve been on the lookout for something new and unusual.

I’ve been thinking all along that I wanted to go with multi-colored zipper teeth but somehow I’ve held back since I really did NOT want to go with another plain black zipper tape.

I’ve been discussing our options with our sales girl though, and when she sent me a sample of this tweed-style tape with metallic undertones paired with the multi-colored teeth, I knew that THIS WAS IT!

And here’s the thing… when we got home from vacation last week I was SO excited to see that our the new zippers had arrived while I was gone!

I really like how they look and one thing I noticed immediately upon opening the package was how remarkably neutral this new zippertape really is!

Oh, I can’t say its near as neutral as our amazing black & white mini-striped zippers are, but it sure looks good with a wide variety of fabrics and that makes it a great addition to our zipper lineup!

If you like these zippers and think they could add a little pizzazz to your next project,
they are now listed as an option in the 10″ & 20″ closed bottom style and also the 22″ style
that’s closed on both ends with two zipper pulls! Just click HERE to get more info and to order some for yourself!

And now, it’s YOUR turn!
