Yep, I confess. I have a zipper fetish.
It happened during my maiden voyage into the vast land of
sourcing materials when designing the CCK(Cash, Cards, Keys) bags.
It's like opening presents every time
zippers arrive from favorite supplier YKK.
These came in late last week in preparation for making
additional bag styles - medium and small cross shoulder bags and a clutch - being added to the line.
Wouldn't you go nuts after seeing a color card like this?
Colors for miles ...............
What's special about YKK zippers?
Well that's a given.
They're substantial. The metal feels old school. The zipper pull is sturdy and the more they're used the more the zippers glide smooth as silk.
There's icing on this cake.
While YKK is a global company,
the zippers we receive are made in factories in the
United States of America - all around our BEAUTIFUL country.
This recent shipment was made in Macon, Georgia.
I like this.
Made in USA makes sense.
Now that the zippers are here
let the sample making rumpus begin!
