The zipper has passed through the hands of several dedicated inventors before they were able to convince the general public to accept the zipper as part of everyday costume. It was warmly accepted only eighty years after its first appearance. The zipper's first appearance was in 1851 by an American named Elias Howe who also invented the sewing machine. Howe called it 'an Automatic Continuous Clothing Closure' but it never reached the market. More than forty years later, Whitcomb L. Judson patented a similar 'Clasp Locker', for fastening shoes and marketed the invention through his 'Universal Fastener' company. Whitcom usually gets the honor of being called the 'Inventor of the Zipper' but the zipper was not yet part of everyday use.
The design used today, based on interlocking teeth, was invented by the Swedish scientist Gideon Sundback, in 1913 as the 'Hookless Fastener' and patented in 1917 as the 'Separable Fastener'. The name zipper came from the B. F. Goodrich Company in 1923. The zip became popular for children's clothing and men's trousers in the 1920s and 1930s. The next big boost for the zipper came when zippers could open on both ends, as on jackets. Today the zipper is everywhere, in clothing, luggage and leather goods and countless other objects. Zip-it team took the zipper an extra step forward while creating the Zip-It Bag.
Thousands of zipper miles are produced daily, meeting the needs of consumers, thanks to the early efforts of the many famous zipper inventors.
