Hi! I have started a charity project in Ethiopia where I am making leather bags and donate part of the revenue to charity. The leather is amazing but the metal work available there (hooks, zippers) has poor quality. I am looking everywhere to buy high quality zippers to take with me to Ethiopia but can't work out where (in Europe preferably but doesn't really matter) I can buy the zippers! I am looking for two way heavy metal brass zippers with two sliders that opens when sliders are separated (i.e the sliders are facing each other). Do you have any advice to offer or has this topic ever been discussed in the forum? YKK zippers would be great but I have no idea which model is the correct one or way to buy them online!

Thanks in advance!

Therese

I did a simple Google for "2 way metal zipper uk" and came up with 1.2 million results. The first 5 seemed to have what you want, so I'm not sure if you're asking for something I don't understand or not. Examples:
