Sewing and Mending Products

Coles were not the only store to sell bra replacement elastic …

St Mark was a Woolworths house brand from the 1960s to around 1980, and Sew’n’Save from around 1968-1972.

Korbond were not the only suppliers on iron-on mending patches. They were available in Australia from  1947.

Lightning Zips

Lightning Fasteners were news in 1922 ( see http://www.austbuttonhistory.com/23rd-may-2022/).
