It is found on bags, coats, pants and boots. It is really impossible to imagine life without it- the zipper. They are so common and the truth is also not so noticeable, that it is easy to take them for granted. But when they break down, it's impossible ...
Zipper Day comes to remind us of the origin and history of this useful and wonderful invention that accompanies us almost everywhere.
The exact zipper's birthday is controversial, but the zipper day is traditionally celebrated on April 29th. On this day in 1913, Swedish-American scientist and inventor Gideon Sundback registered his strange device as a patent. Although there were similar inventions around the 1850s, its version is accepted as the first modern zipper.
The zipper quickly found where to fit into modern life, for example the United States military adopted it for uniforms and bags. The zipper is a functional and fashionable accessory, sometimes it even appears as an ornament. There is no doubt that the invention of Sundback has improved our lives and deserves us to dedicate a special day to it!
