Trust what YKK uses, they have been making zippers for ever and have the market cornered.

They use NF fabrics which just means they are woven on small narrow looms, like one inch wide, kind of like braiding. The edges are locked on (called a selvage) and will not unravel like a wide woven that you cut into strips.
gee thanks for the lesson.
