Talon International, Inc. (otcqb:TALN), a leading global supplier of zippers, apparel fasteners, trim and stretch technology products, announced that the company has been granted an official United States Patent No. 9,756,879, for the 'Flex Collar', Expandable and Flexible Shirt Collar Stand and Shirt with Same.
After years of testing and trial runs, Talon has perfected its Flex Collar invention, using its proprietary equipment and processes, and ever improving materials to provide a new level of comfort for our necks. The Flex Collar technology ensures that collars that choke are a thing of the past, allowing the collars to stretch from a minimum of 0.5 inch to over an inch, depending on the fabric.
The textile world has been quick to grasp the significance of how this technology will transform the industry. The Flex Collar technology has already been adopted in formal shirts by Van Huesen, CALVIN KLEIN, Geoffrey Beene, TOMMY HILFIGER, Arrow, Michael Kors, Chaps, Eagle and IZOD.
This latest patent is another example of the innovative technology that Talon brings to the apparel market, the most recent being the invisible, expanding waistband which has sold in the tens of millions worldwide.
Herman Roup, president of Talon's Tekfit division, stated "At Talon we are all about innovation. We have an amazing history, including the inventor of the original Zipper, first zipper to be used in outer space, and now, innovators of various stretch technologies. Talon is committed to continue its innovative culture, bringing new technologies to the apparel industry."
