A zipper is an inconspicuous part of any garment, but a botched zipper can completely defeat the purpose of any outfit. It is therefore a detail that cannot be underestimated.
The Japanese manufacturing group YKK Group is an absolute giant in the field of zippers. It is estimated that up to half of all zippers are produced by YKK and its reputation is behind this huge demand, approximately 7 billion zippers a year. YKK zippers are considered to be the highest standard in their category and the high quality of workmanship is because YKK has complete control over the entire zipper manufacturing process, from the melting of the iron to the packaging of the finished zipper.
