Gideon Sundback invented the zipper in 1913

zipper100yearsThe patent was done by a Swedish immigrant named Gideon Sundback, which is the person behind the type of zipper we see today. Womens, men and children. All have zippers. All sorts of clothes have them. You zip it up and zip it down.

The zipper became a normal thing to have from 1960’s. Before then, people didn’t understand the flexibility of the zipper. The zipper didn’t take off between 1913 and 1930. But in 1937, the zipper beat the button at a Battle of the Fly contest. According to “The Encyclopedia of Modern Everyday Inventions” by David John Cole, Eve Browning and Fred E. H. Schroeder, Esquire magazine praised the zipper fly for helping avoid “the possibility of unintentional and embarrassing disarray.” The Levi Strauss company continued to be unimpressed for about another 20 years.

So now, thanks to the Swedish immigrant Gideon Sundback, we all have zippers. Its handy, but at times frustrating when the zipper locks with the clothes. Argh,.. Happy birthday zipper, from Distrita!
