  • New Improved Zip Section!

    Here at Fabric-world we strive to bring you the newest products available and are always trying to make choosing the right products easier to find when looking on our website. We have recently changed our Zip section so it is easier to navigate around and help you make the right choice of Zip for all of your dressmaking needs whether you are repairing a garment or creating from scratch...

    First of all, there are two main choices of Zips. Open Ended Zips and Closed Ended Zips. Open Ended Zips completely come apart, such as zips in jackets. They are come in a range of different materials:

    Plastic Open Ended Zips- They have a chunky finish to them and look great in heavier weight fabrics such as fleeces or cardigans.

    Nylon Open Ended Zips- These have finer teeth and come in the same colour choices and sizes. (10" to 30")

    Metal Open Ended Zips- These have metal teeth and are substantially stronger that the others. Ideal for work wear and bags which are heavier weight and again, come in a choice of colours.

    If you need even more strength, our Heavy Duty Metal Zips would be the ideal choice. They are made from nickel and will do exactly what they say. They are available in black and really will last!

    Our range of Closed Ended Zips come in a variation of choices. Normal Dress Zips, which are joined together at the bottom, are suitable for trousers, shirts dresses etc and are made from nylon and have fine teeth. There are many colours available in the range so you can easily match up the colours of your fabrics! Dress Zips start from 4" and reach up to 22". You can even use Dress Zips on cushions and even bags!

    Have an elegant garment and want to make the Zip as minimal as possible, Concealed Zips are the perfect choice. They sew in easily to your clothing and only the small pull is visible!  Again, available in a range of colours and sizes, we are more than happy to pick out the best match to your fabrics too so come and have a look at our fabulous colour range!

    We also stock Jeans Zips and Nickel trouser Zips so come and have a look around and maybe find some inspiration as we have some stunning fabrics!
