Herringbone Zips by Coats

Posted by Beni Schaub at 2:31 AM
Coats plc, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, is launching a new range of zips featuring a herringbone (HB) pattern tape.  The tapes of the new Opti M HB zips are interwoven with polyester and cotton yarns to achieve the classic pattern.

The polyester absorbs the dye while the cotton just changes colour slightly which creates the herringbone effect and also provides a soft finish to the tape, similar to fabrics with this special weave.  The dyeing techniques can be varied so the product is available in a natural shade - which is suitable for post-dyed garments – as well as in the normal Coats’ colour range.  The puller and teeth have a brass finish. 
Rajiv Sharma, CEO, Industrial Division, Coats plc, said: ‘The herringbone pattern is a timeless look in fashion.  Our new zips provide a classic, elegant detail that can be used in a range of garments and applications.
The main uses for Opti M HB zips are in fashion apparel, leather goods, handbags and luggage.
