In addition, YKK has also unveiled its latest fastening solution: a stud that allows reversible use and so reduces the number of items in the application. It also reduces the need for multiple fabric layers to cover the parts, thereby eliminating thickness at its closure. The stud can be applied to small leather goods, as well as detachable linings in outerwear.
