“Your mission is to create a product that can be mass-produced, yet is simple and cleverly designed”.

This was the assignment that sparked the imagination of an aspiring industrial designer back in 2004. Taking a cue from the objects that surrounded him, the student set the goal of transforming a two-dimensional object into a three-dimensional object.

With a burst of creative energy, long days and nights were spent experimenting with various raw materials and finally the breakthrough came with a few small changes to the sewing of a zipper. It was this pivotal moment that led to the product that would start it all – a case made entirely of one long zipper.

Years later, this ingenious design experiment became officially known as the ZIPIT® Zipper pencil case, the catalyst for the start of an entire company.


Zipit is a breakthrough bags-and-cases design house that makes original, fun, affordable and high-quality products, with patented designs. It was born from a need to create a truly original and authentic brand; one that stands out in a generally uninspiring mass market. Always original, each and every Zipit design begins with a blank piece of paper and a promise to excite the imagination, bring a smile to customers’ faces, and ignite their passion to fulfill their own ideas.

In a few short years, Zipit has built up a global customer base resulting in its products being carried by many of the world’s leading retailers. From its offices in Boston, Munich, Tel Aviv and Xiamen, the Zipit team serves its customers in over 40 countries around the globe.

By creating products that are smart, colorful, and imaginatively designed, they aim to infuse people all over the world with sheer joy, and encourage them to unzip their own ideas without holding back.

Apart from the famous pencil cases, their product portfolio consists of bags, backpacks, interactive coloring books, and drawing booklets.
