Made in France

Genius Objects relies on the expertise of Satab, the European leader in narrow textiles, to develop the textile element of Zip and Go®. Established in the historical area of Saint-Etienne and founded in 1905, Satab is a family-run, independent company. The company creates, weaves, braids and knits a range of tapes, straps and cords. It also manufactures zippers and other narrow textiles items. Satab successfully bridges the gap between tradition and innovation with its R&D centre, where Zip and Go® has been produced with great success.

Use cases

Use case #1

Card image cap

You’re in the subway and you’re carrying your laptop, your wallet and your glasses in your backpack. Someone opens your pack in an attempt to steal your belongings. Zip and Go® technology sends you an alert to prevent the theft.

Use case #2

Card image cap

A technician is carrying out work on the motorway. On closing his protective jacket Zip and Go® technology activates lights in the fabric and a distant control desk can localise him on a map. By being more visible on site and tracked at a distance he is better protected.
