At Talon, we're proud of our history as the original American zipper and we're building on it with the same innovative spirit. Today's Talon is global, creative, and responsive. The world's leading apparel companies and designers call on Talon for premium, fashion-forward, cost-effective zippers. From our reinvention of the classic jeans zipper to custom-designed pulls, Talon products are relevant, stylish, and ahead of the curve. That inventiveness extends to our global sales, product development and distribution system; experienced technical and creative teams; value pricing; and total flexibility in delivery and special orders. We're guided in this effort by our parent company, Talon International, a full-service trim supplier known for its revolutionary approach to trim management.
Talon operates its business from its headquarters in Woodland Hills, CA (part of the greater Los Angeles area), with regional offices located in Ohio, New York, North Carolina, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Taipei, India, and Bangladesh. Talon manufactures its products through a controlled network of joint manufacturing arrangements with select Southeast Asia manufacturing partners. These carefully selected and monitored manufacturing facilities substantially dedicated their facilities to Talon and provide dyeing, chain manufacturing and final assembly services under the direct supervision of Talon production control and quality control engineers that are on-site at each facility. All raw materials used have been specified by Talon, all of the manufacturing processes and controls have been approved by Talon, and in many cases the manufacturing equipment has been supplied by Talon. These manufacturing partners join with Talon in producing the highest quality products in accordance with the specifications set out by Talon and its customers. To ensure continuous product and quality consistency, and to protect the Talon and customer brands, Talon carefully controls the manufacturing of key components such as custom sliders, pulls and tape components within a few select factories. These factories then supply these components to Talon’s other manufacturing partners who complete the coloring, assembly, testing and inspection of the final product, delivering the finished product directly to the garment manufacturer.
Snaps are the primary fastener on a wide variety of garments, ranging from surf wear to infant wear. They are used as closures on heavy jackets, back pockets, and traditional western-style snap-front shirts. Snaps are attached with automated equipment very similar to that offered for tack buttons and rivets. Most snaps are 24 line. For children's clothing and other uses, a 20 Line snap is common.
Tack Buttons provide the primary waist closure for most jeans and a variety of other bottoms. Smaller sizes can also be used for "button-fly" style jeans, or for the buttons on jean jackets, including pockets.
