Our iconic vintage zippers were introduced to the world in the 1920s – the original and authentic blue jean zipper! Despite many imitations on the market, we created the most successful and widely recognized zipper that you know today. Unfortunately, these imitations lack the knowledge on how to construct Talon’s secret: The Formed Wire Scoop. Instead of scoops stamped from flat wire, Talon developed a special formed wire that promotes greater strength, smoother lines and better operation. Our metal contains high level of copper to withstand repeated washing and intense wear-and-tear. Not only is metal ideal for denim, but the ruggedness complements well with luggage, workwear, outerwear, and industrial products!
