Talon International and KC Wearable Technologies Srl Partner to Launch New Fashion Innovations

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- Talon International Inc. and KC Wearable Technologies Srl. in Italy have formed a strategic partnership to supply Talon's customers, the world's largest fashion brands, with the KC's wearable technology innovations. With a strong vision for the future, the cooperation will facilitate the sales and distribution of existing KC innovations, as well as the creation of exciting future joint developments to make new functionalities in clothing and accessories possible.

Sales and Distribution of Existing KC Innovations:

Given Talon's reputation for continuously revolutionizing their product offerings, as well as transforming the fashion industry, they always seek opportunities to serve their customers better. The cooperation with KC Wearable Technologies provides Talon with the ability to sell and distribute creative and unique solutions. Developments like heating systems for clothing and accessories, cooling systems for fashion and activewear, and wireless charging pockets for smartphones, will provide Talon customers with industry leading technology, to stay at the forefront of their competitors. With patented technologies, which are often designed to be removable for washing and cleaning purposes, Talon foresees their widespread use in the future.

"We've already had significant interest from our existing customer base, which has us very excited for the future of our industry," says Larry Dyne, CEO at Talon International Inc. "Thanks to our partnership with KC Wearable Technologies, these technologies can be applied to garments and accessories, to create superior products with short development to market times."

Joint Development of Further Innovations:

By combining the abilities of KC with those of Talon, both companies will begin the process of jointly exploring further game changing initiatives. For example, KC has integrated NFC tags into buttons and silicone patches, to allow consumers to create convenient shortcuts on their smartphones. In future, Talon will now also roll out this concept on many of its existing product lines, including trims, Velcro patches, fasteners, and zippers.

Dominik Kufner, Managing Partner at KC, points out another example of where the combined abilities of KC and Talon will lead to new initiatives: "In the near future, we plan to jointly create new safety vests, with a wide range of revolutionary new safety functions. With integrated new communication tools, sensor technologies and alarm systems, workers can be safer than ever before."

Sofia Cinel, Managing Partner of KC points out another invention which will change the future of the fashion industry: "KC's development of flexible lithium batteries, for applications in clothing and accessories, opens infinite new possibilities. With Talon's vast network, the use of this innovation can now be rolled out in the entire industry in countless new applications."

In future it will be normal that jackets, handbags, or wallets will re-charge cell phones. We will be used to caps or beanies functioning as earphones, and that outerwear will electrically heat or cool consumers. Silver textiles will decontaminate objects in pockets and protect credit cards, while activated carbon components will absorb odor molecules. People will have loudspeakers in the thumb of their gloves, to answer phone calls without taking them off, and they will open their handbags with biometric fingerprint locks.

The research and development teams of both Talon and KC are thrilled about the next stage in their growth and excited to help change the future.

Talon International, Inc. Introduces its New High Quality Fashion Bonding Division

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- Talon International, Inc. continues its legacy and history as lead innovators, introducing its newest division, "Bonding." With technology suitable for various categories within the apparel industry as well as many other applications: such as outdoor products, automotive and countless other applications. This new product line continues to be aligned with the company's ethos of leading the charge and shifting apparel and other industries towards sustainability, innovation, quality, and premium performance.

Bonding Solution:

Talon International has an existing portfolio of revolutionary products including zippers, trim, stretch technologies, packaging, anti-counterfeit solutions, sustainability and now its latest bonding solutions. With performance, quality and functionality being a core value for their offerings, Talon identified a gap in the market for high-quality adhesive films and high levels of technical support in the field.

Following detailed industry research, speaking with both existing and new clients, product development and testing processes, we are proud to unveil solutions that deliver comfort and performance, and water resistance and seamless applications. The product line features "Flex-It" films, Adhesive films, Overlay films, and Seam Sealing Tapes each with their own unique technologies and functionality.

"Design is in the details; we are dedicated to constant iteration and innovation to provide our existing and prospective clients with products that move the needle in the quality of finished products to create excellent customer experiences," says Larry Dyne, Chief Executive Office at Talon International Inc.

Designed specifically for comfort and performance, the Flex-It films range features a spandex film secured between two adhesive layers for superior elasticity, strength, and durability. Ideal for lingerie and undergarments, active and athleisure, as well as outerwear, there are multiple variations to choose from.

With the move towards the importance of design aesthetics as well as functionality the seamless Adhesive film range was introduced to maintain premium softness, flexibility, and support while providing high-performance throughout the life of the garment.

"With the ability to bond fabrics, waterproofing, creating breathable barriers, and spider web adhesives, the line is perfect for sportswear, athleisure, shapewear, and undergarments," says Abhijeet Majumdar, Director of Bonding at Talon International Inc.

When it comes to innovating apparel for workwear, skiing, hiking, and outerwear, as well as tents, backpacks, and luggage, water resistant Seam Sealing Tape films are one of their latest innovations. With options for 2-layer tapes, 3-layer tapes, colored tapes, and printed tapes, the high-quality adhesive films increase the water-resistant properties, and therefore durability, of seams.

Lastly, to fill a void found within these various applications and use cases Overlay film provides garments with safety, security, and durability against shrinking and stretching over time. With a wide range of colors and options available, the film can be applied to many material variants including zippers, bag flaps, elastic bands, woven and knitted garments for compression and waterproofing.

Talon International Announces Launch of 100% Sustainable Ghost Net Products

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- After years of meaningful development, Talon International is proud to announce the launch of its innovative Ghost Net Products. The company successfully developed a solution to improving marine habitats by collecting and recycling the surplus of plastic waste that has consumed our beloved oceans.

Plastic waste has finally reached the top of society's agenda. Only nine percent of the plastic produced since the beginning of the material's revolutionary debut has been recycled. Unfortunately, much of the remainder invade our waters-4.9 billion tons consuming the habitats of vital marine wildlife. If the trend continues, our oceans will contain more plastic than fish in less than thirty years.

Talon has taken to collecting abandoned ghost nets, a substantial portion of our planet's plastic waste, and developing them into an assortment of practical fashion items, including zippers, buckles, cord adjusters, buttons, and more. The company's process is simple: search, collect, clean, regenerate, and develop the recycled resin into innovative products that will change the world, one ghost net at a time.

Talon International has been awarded the Global Recycled Standard by the INFL Laboratory and Institute, certifying that its Ghost Net Products and manufacturing practices conform with international voluntary standards. The company currently coordinates and operates the recycling of ghost nets found amongst China's shores. Talon is honored to be the first audited and certified fishing net recycling system in China.

Larry Dyne, CEO of Talon International explains, "We believe that the solution is obvious. We have been practicing it for years now. Reuse! At Talon, we are at the forefront of innovation and sustainability. We coordinate and operate the collection and recycling of ocean waste plastic, including fishing nets, to reduce the environmental harm."

Alongside their corporate efforts to push the boundaries with innovative designs and solutions, Talon International presents retailers everywhere the opportunity to take part in raising sustainability standards. Talon designed the sustainable Ghost Net Product line with their valued partners in mind, in hopes to encourage more retailers like yours to make a difference.

Hand-in-hand, companies everywhere have the power to make a positive, influential impact on the planet. Until zero ghost nets remain in our oceans, let us reduce, reuse, and recycle together.

"The Supply Chain Collective aims to help alleviate hurdles related to topics such as sustainable solutions for materials, packaging, hangers and plastics, logistics for fulfillment, warehousing and distribution, inventory management, size inclusivity, and artisan sourcing, among others," wrote Cal McNeil, Program Manager at the CFDA on Friday. "The inaugural Supply Chain Collective partners include: ApparelMagic, Arch & Hook, Bergen Logistics, KEDIC Fashion Workshop, Nest, SwatchOn, Talon International, Inc., and TIPA."

Founded in 1893, Talon International's story began with fulfilling one of the fashion industry's most basic needs via the zipper. It's that revolutionary invention that set the company's deep roots as a fashion forward accessories supplier now celebrating 125 years as a pioneer in the industry. Talon is an integral piece in moving fashion forward with its offering of trim, packaging, Adjustec(r) stretch technology, and more that have all evolved within the industry.

As such, Talon International will now be the CFDA's Supply Chain Collective provider of zippers, trim, packaging, stretch technology, as well as providing a variety of sustainable and ECO like solutions.

"As a provider of single-use zippers, trim, and packaging products, we are finding imaginative ways our customers may re-use our products rather than just throw them away," says Dyne. "Whether it's our sustainable hang tag that can be planted to grow trees, our Ocean Waste Ghost Nets material that can be transformed into zippers, buckles, D Rings, buttons, and more, we focus on reducing our impact on the environment."

Application wise...anywhere an existing zipper is used is an opportunity for Character Zip. This fresh construction can be applied to clothing such as, jackets and zip-up sweatshirts, bags and backpacks.

This is a breakthrough idea for a new customer experience and an excellent opportunity for brands to showcase their properties. We KNOW the massive appeal of Character Zip will activate the best minds in the biz to rise up with us for blockbuster success. Be the first to market with this state-of-the-art product.
