Default Leathers Repair Cork

Looking to get a new zip put into a pair of one piece leathers.

Is there anywhere in cork does it ? Is there any specialist equipment needed compared to a standard alteration shop ?

Might be worth trying a leather cobbler - http://thecobblercork.com/
They would have a better chance of having the heavy duty leather tools

Try zip yard as gsxr says. I got new full length zip fitted by them last year perfect job and well priced as well.First zip yard branch I tried said no they couldn't do it but told me to try another branch so I did and was told no bother as they had a staff member who was great at sewing leather goods.Depends on staff and machines I suppose from branch to branch!!

The Isle of Man is a long way to go for a zipper...
