Introducing: A Brand New Zipper Style!


as it turned out, we went the entire year of 2017 without introducing a new zipper style. For some reason, I just couldn’t get excited about any of my potential choices. I even polled many of my show customers as to which style zipper they’d like to see us introduce next, but nothing rang my bell!

There is afterall a substantial outlay of capital required to bring a new zipper style to Market because zippers are pretty expensive to get made unless you buy them in LARGE quantities, so it would be foolhardy for me to go forward with a zipper style I didn’t feel pretty confident about!

So I decided to just quit thinking about it!

And then all of a sudden… in the middle of the Quilt Market floor this past Fall… it came to me! I was in the process of admiring a totally gorgeous handmade bomber jacket and pondering which of my zipper prints would’ve paired best with it when to my disappointment I realized that actually… NONE of them would have. That’s because the zipper that would’ve been perfect for this jacket in my estimation wouldn’t have been a print at all, but rather, a simple solid black tape with shiny, SHINY zipper teeth and a really FUN, and an equally shiny silver zipper pull! And then it hit me!


Maybe our new zipper style shouldn’t be a print at all?

And just like the decision was made for me and I was off and running! Bottom line…I’m totally in love with our new zipper which is solid black with shiny silver teeth and the cutest little zipper pull you’ve ever seen (a solid nickel cylinder), and I hope you love it too!

To begin with, we’ll offer this new zipper style in three lengths/types… the popular 10″and 20″ closed bottom styles and the versatile 22″ long purse variety.
