    I don't know how "diy" this is, but definitely looks like an informative read for somebody interested in leather or skins.

    Conservation of Leather and Related Materials
    by Marion Kite, Roy Thompson

    Product Description (C/O Amazon)
    The conservation of skin, leather and related materials is an area that, until now, has had little representation by the written word in book form. Marion Kite and Roy Thomson, of the Leather Conservation Centre, have prepared a text which is both authoritative and comprehensive, including contributions from the leading specialists in their fields, such as Betty Haines, Mary Lou Florian, Ester Cameron and Jim Spriggs.

    The book covers all aspects of Skin and Leather preservation, from Cuir Bouillie to Bookbindings. There is significant discussion of the technical and chemical elements necessary in conservation, meaning that professional conservators will find the book a vital part of their collection.

    As part of the Butterworth-Heinemann Black series, the book carries the stamp of approval of the leading figures in the world of Conservation and Museology, and as such it is the only publication available on the topic carrying this immediate mark of authority.

    * First book to cover the subject comprehensively
    * Wide coverage, including Fish and Reptiles, Taxidermy and Furs, making it invaluable for conservator, curator and collector alike
    * Technical aspects of conservation discussed in full

    Just thought I'd contribute this:

    They have a large assortment of YKK zippers, in different materials (molded plastic, aluminum, brass, antique brass etc) and just about any color combination you can think of. Also they have different types such as separating, two way zips, two way separating etc etc etc.

    Best part about it is you can have them make the zipper to any length you specify for $1 extra.
