Continuous zips are different from other zips by the fact that the zip tape is sold per metre, with no zip pulls. This means you can cut your zip in any size you’d like. Also, you are able to put on two zipper pulls because… you are aware… you’ve got to love the style.

What are the advantages of continuous zips?

Reduce waste: Since you only use the amount of zipper tape you’ll need, there’s an environmental benefit of continuous zipper tape. With some planning, waste can be reduced to a minimum, and an extended length, with enough pulls, could turn into several zips.

Whatever length you want: cutting the zip tape to length allows you to have long zips!

Multiple zipper pulls: This also means that you can put two zipper pulls onto your tape, which gives you a unique zip like this one.
