Every time I give a talk on the luxury business today and I get to the subject of counterfeiting, the same thing happens. The room grows absolutely silent as I put forth the facts: It is estimated that up to 7 percent of our annual world trade - $600 billion worth - is counterfeit or pirated; that fakes are believed to be directly responsible for the loss of more than 750,000 American jobs; that everything from baby formula to medicine is counterfeited, with tragic results; that counterfeiters and the crime syndicates they work with deal in human trafficking, child labor and gang warfare; and that counterfeiting is used to launder money, and the money has been linked to truly sinister deeds such as terrorism.

No one utters a word, not a sound, as I recall the raid I went on with chinese police in a tenement in Guangzhou and what we discovered when we walked in: two dozen sad, tired, dirty children, ages 8 to 14, making fake Dunhill, Versace and Hugo Boss handbags on old, rusty sewing machines. It was like something out of Dickens, "Oliver Twist"in the 21st century.

Based upon the clipped article said above, a conservative figure of total annual lost in counterfeit goods worldwide was no less than $42Billion (7% of 600Billion) which is covering all kinds of luxury products e.g., clothes, all wearable with hand-gripped stuffs, electronics and etc….. Among, it is believed the deluxe personally portable items such as bags, clothes, watches would be over 20% of $42B and that means 8+Billion US Dollars, even under super tightly seized but the counterfeit items were still not so effectively prevented. One obvious reason, there was no one single way is easily used to identify Real vs Counterfeit visibly.

Spent a long time, we found all raw material with handed-craft plus artwork, the counterfeit item could be made as same as Real one, even a professional inspector may not be able to distinguish. Ergo, unless there is one special accessory could be easily identified and way of effectively not necessary has to be identified by professional inspector, the reason is inspector who may not be accompanying with each customer, even so, the professional sales may not be able to identify. On the other hand, however, if the item could be easily distinguished by customer themselves then the counterfeit goods could be decreased dramatically. The question is how/what is the best way to make its happened.

Yes, thinking, We finally focus on the Zipper as it is used for each luxury item of bag for instance, until "" appeared it will be different, which is a kind hi-tech/special techniques for the metal Zipper (Zinc alloy) combining Metallurgy, EDM, Molding, Injection, zipper design with Electro-plating for the all teeth shaped in English Alpha-Beta letter or symbol which is an unique zipper with both patent and techniques. While you buy those items with, you can easily distinguish the Real one for sure. is easily visible, scenario is Fashion-loved-ladies always like to show up luxury item e.g. bags which would be also telling all participants in party she has gripped a fake if bags can't showing that unique zipper !!!!

Information quoted from Patent (or under filing/reviewing) and techniques briefing as below:
SUMMARY OF THE PATENTTo achieve the object herein, present invention is zipper's teeth made by Zinc-alloy via Thermal Press Forming process or POM teeth made by Injection Molding method, to make the shape of tiny teeth appearing either in English letter or symbol on subject teeth and each single tooth is pressed to snap tightly on zipper strap so as to finally form a functional zipper properly. While such unique zipper (along with selected English letter or symbol on teeth) is applied on each developing commodity, which will represent who makes this commodity or easily identify the commodity source from which Brand. By this way, subject teeth structure is able creating an additional feature of anti-counterfeit effectively. See patents/filings as shown below.

SUMMARY OF THE TECHNIQUEwhile the teeth made by Zinc-alloy which melting point is over 460C0, per cycle under high temperature process of tooth forming and be pressed to snap tightly on strap almost under a simultaneous moment, one single tooth or multiple teeth within length of a couple inches to be pressed to snap on one side strap per cycle which probably could be achievable in laboratory, but it's not a practical method to be applied for mass production in zipper field. As noted, based upon current technique, it's hard almost impossible that teeth to be pressed to snap on strap length up to 30cm per cycle, nor a double sides teeth Snap-on simultaneously be pressed to snap on straps. For the zipper mass production concern, it is believed the length around 30cm per cycle for teeth snap on strap is a reasonable request which neither has been made nor teeth with English letter or symbol appearance before. However, an advanced technology breakthrough was made by the inventor of, over 30cm with double sides ID. teeth to be pressed to snap tightly on straps per cycle which has be worked out successfully. It is noted this achievement is never happened previously. (Refer to drawings/photo as showing above)
