  • Buy Zips for the winter

    This January seems to be a very cold month with temperatures dropping to 0 degrees and below. Now the weather is freezing we are starting to wear more winter coats and rain macs to keep warm. Walking the dog in this weather seems to be great effort especially when its raining and cold outside. Rain macs are the perfect protector for this weather, especially when they have a good heavy duty zip fastener. You can Buy Zips for the winter at Fabric-World in a wide range of designs and colours especially for your garment. If you need to replace a zip, heavy duty zips or our regular plastic zips are best to use.

    Plastic Open End Zip

These zips are available in a wide range of colour options so you can match your chosen garment. You can Buy Zips for the winter in a variety of sizes so yo can choose the one you need.
