Happy Zipper Inventor Day!

Have you guys seen Google today? I might have beat you to it on account of being ahead of most of you time-wise 😉

Today is the birthday of Swedish born Gideon Sundback who invented the zipper between 1906 and 1914 – although it didn’t catch on in the fashion industry for another 20 years!

Thanks Mr Sundback and Happy Birthday! 🙂
