Hipster fabrics and hardware
« on: March 14, 2017, 03:39:13 PM »
I couldn't think of a better title that explains what I'm after 8) Long story short, I'm starting another brand aimed towards more streetwear and fashion oriented products, so I'm interested in some sources for things like waxed cotton canvas, oilcloth and classic metal hardware. It doesn't have to be milspec, but I'd go for the level above the nickle plated crackpipe.

Anything else to consider or things that one needs to know before buying?

Reviving this old topic... Check out Ohio Travel Bag. http://www.ohiotravelbag.com/  You can make an account and they'll send you the catalog and pricing. They have an absolutely massive catalog of this exact type of hardware that you're looking for. They're also a good source for YKK stuff especially if you need a less-than-cartonloads of zipper tape or pulls in every size and shape you can imagine.

I have no clue on where to source oilcloth/oilskin in bulk/wholesale, but I have a bought a couple yards from Tentsmith’s. Good quality stuff.
