heavy duty zippers
I am looking for a mail order company that offers heavy duty zippers. I am specifically looking for zippers that can be used when making coats. I’ve tried Clotilde but had no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
You could try Rose City Textiles (www.rctfabrics.com) or Softwear Productions (www.softwearproductions.com).
The Rose City site is a little confusing--select the "swatches" and from that page choose to "look" without a customer number. Then on the next page there will be an area (I think it is blank) that you can select and scroll down to what you want.
Hope this helps.
*I got some heavy duty zippers by the yard from Seattle fabrics. I know they have an 800 number and maybe even a website. I used the zipper to rapair a tent. I, of course, bought extra, stasher that I am.try finding them if you can't get what you want from the above sources.
*Try Atlanta Thread and Supply Company, they have quite a few zippers many of which are jacket zippers. You can request a catalogue by calling 1-800-847-1001. Good luck
*Also try The Rainshed, Inc. in Corvallis, Oregon. They have a great catalog for outerwear fabric, patterns and findings. Phone (541) 753-8900 or fax (541) 757-1887.
