Products We Love: New Bag Hardware from Dritz

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Here at Sew4Home, we’re quite well known for our bag designs; it’s even the focus of our recent book with Fons & Porter: Bags and Totes, 10 Fashionable Projects Anyone Can Sew. When we start a new bag concept, one of the first things we think about is hardware: buckles, slides, clips, hooks… the elements that provide both functionality as well as a professional finish. The right piece of hardware can even be the genesis of an entire design. Since it’s such an important element, you know we were thrilled when we found out about the new Dritz® hardware coming out this Spring. In particular, we were excited to see two brand new finishes: copper and gunmetal. So, in honor of Valentine’s Day - we’re celebrating Products We Love today – ones we think you’ll love too! 

The Dritz Copper Collection offers an exciting alternative to the more traditional silver and gold palettes. There are two sizes of swivel hooks, plus a large clip hook with a matching heavyweight D-ring. Regular weight D-rings, rectangle rings, as well as a unique triangle ring give you lots of great options for attaching straps and handles. The collection rounds out with a matching slide adjuster and heavy-duty snaps. 

Gunmetal is another brand new finish with a full coordinated collection. This color walks the line between a rich nickel and a sleek black, allowing it to work equally well on an elegant evening clutch or a casual backpack. In addition to all the elements that are available in the Dritz Copper Collection, the Gunmetal Collection also includes a very cool tassel cap and double-cap rivets. 

Both of these great new finishes will be available online and in-store next month! 

While you’re waiting, check out similar hardware available in classic Nickel

     

As well as both Brushed Brass and Antique Brass.

Not every option shown above and below in the existing finishes is available now, as several of the newer shapes and sizes are rolling out with the new finishes, but quite a few are in stores and online. We're particularly fond of the Dritz® push locks and turn locks, which we often use for flap closures on our bags.

    

This expansion into five matching collections is great news for bag makers everywhere, because you can find Dritz® products everywhere! No more searching from store to store or site to site to find elements that go together. Thanks, Dritz® for making our lives so much easier and more creative. 

We have our sites set on that large clip hook and matching D-ring as well as those cute tassel caps. Be watching for new projects coming your way that feature these new hardware collections. And, watch the in-store and virtual shelves of your favorite retailer in March to find your own bag-making must-haves. 

To find out more, we invite you to visit the Dritz® website or blog; or follow them on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube

@ Laura - So sorry you're having trouble finding this pretty new hardware. We hear from our friends at Dritz that there have been some delays in the distribution process, but the product should be widely available by May. Thanks for your patience -- and it really is wonderful -- worth the wait

Ok. I am in love with the large hook and d-ring. I didn't know they were available in the current colors.  I have been all over the internet looking for them, but can't find them.  So where can I get the nickel or antique brass while I wait for the new collections to come out? I was on the Dritz website and they didn't have them listed.

@ quiltflute - Our friends at Dritz tell us that come of the newer hardware options in the existing finishes are not quite readily available. We will keep you posted as everything rolls out.
