Item details

Mid century metal zippers, NOS, salvaged from a family owned knit factory called ANIT from Israel. The Anit factory opened in the late 1940s, early 1950s and was called after the family’s first baby (girl) Anat. The factory focused on knitwear. They started out with one knitting machine that father Shlomo and one of the factory’s employees worked on while the mother Ester designed and created a variety of beautiful and colorful patterns.

Lot of 5 red metal zippers. Short and small. Have never been used. Perfect for retro designs and for vintage repairs.

Zipper's metal parts are in perfect condition. Some of the zippers fabric parts show a bit of wear due to old age but it does not lessen the quality of these supplies.

Length (with fabric): 8.3in / 21.1cm
Length (only metal): 6.8in / 17.3cm

Additional policies

Some items might have flaws. I make an effort to acquire and deliver clean, flawless items. However – these items were loved by their previous owners for many years and so some wear and tear may appear. I try to clean and mend whatever I can but I do not repair every tear. Every flaw will be noted on the item's individual page. If something is unclear to you from the pictures taken of the item and you require more information and photographs, please contact me.

Once you have received the item, any repairs or upkeep are your responsibility. Quality is important to me, and I would never list something that is on the verge of falling apart, however I cannot know how long items will stay intact. Treat them well and they will treat you well.

Handling your garment –
I deliver clean items. I recommend you hand-wash your garment due to its delicate condition. Remember- these are items made many years ago and some are in a fragile state. Also, searching the web for instructions on how to wash your vintage item is a great way to get more specific information, tricks and tips. I would be happy to answer questions you might have.

All items come from a cat loving home. Although our cat is not allowed near the vintage items, and all items are washed and cleaned, if you have allergies please remember to take the appropriate measures to insure your health and happiness upon recieving your purchase.
