At Talon, we invented the world's first zipper in 1893, changing the face of fashion forever. With a pedigree like this, it may seem like we would sit on the laurels of our earlier accomplishments. Instead, we're committed to moving fashion forward with custom trim, tags and a wide variety of printed marketing solutions.

We're also continuing our legacy of innovation in apparel technology with the introduction of Tekfit stretch technology. Today, more so than ever before, design is in the details. With an unwavering dedication to quality, innovation and service, we value the opportunity to serve our esteemed customers with a wide range of custom trims and zippers with equal attention to form and functionality.

Heritage is who we are, innovation is what we do.

The Original

Founded in 1893, Talon is the original zipper company, and one of the world’s most recognized brands among apparel consumers.  As is often the case, a fashion necessity drove the invention of the first zipper when high-button boots hit the scene. With up to twenty buttons to fasten—a challenge for the most nimble and skilled—it became clear to the Talon founder that there must be an easier and less time-consuming way to put on a pair of boots.  And that single thought was the driving force behind the invention of the Talon Zipper. 

The History of Talon

While we’re proud of Talon’s chronicled history, we stake our reputation on the quality and practicality of today’s products. The world’s leading apparel companies and designers turn to Talon for the latest in high-tech, reliable and cost-effective products.  From the M42, a reinvention of the classic metal jeans zipper, to custom-designed pulls, Talon stays fresh in the market by creating relevant and fashionable products. Talon zippers and trims are tested and approved by virtually all major brands and retailers, continuing our legacy of quality and innovation.
