Coats launches new lacework zip

Coats plc, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, is launching Opti S Cutwork, a new zip with a decorative lace tape that enhances the design and styling of fashion apparel.  The lacework zips are particularly appropriate as delicate detail on fine fabrics used in lingerie, blouses or dresses. 

The special die cut moulds transform standard Coats S40 zips into stylish products that can be produced in any colour and in a variety of pattern shapes for different types of garments.  Customised Cutwork designs are also available.

Rajiv Sharma, CEO, Industrial Division, Coats plc, said: ‘We are constantly extending and innovating the range of zips we offer to ensure we are able to provide our customers with zips suitable for every product and situation.’

The continuous chain roll of the zip can also be used decoratively in hems and edging.  Despite their delicate appearance, the zips have the same washing and care instructions as standard polyester zips.
