im in my workshop working on a belt and i rip open a new package of zipper stops and they go flying across the table. all one hundred of them are scattered everywhere. im pissed, but little did i know it would become the best mistake ever. i get the idea to use them as accessories instead of just at the bottom of a zipper. i line them up in a row and build up the middle of the leather and bam! i have a spine! a cool one at that, kind of gigeresque and kind of biomechanical, more jungle like. junglanichal! the rest is pretty much history.
im know a bunch of other designers are going to look at this and use zipper ends for the same purpose. i could care about people copying it, but i wont. ill take it as a compliment.
just remember where you saw it first.
welcome to the jungle
