Everything you need to know about zippers

What goes up, must come down. UCAN Zippers, a family business in Los Angeles, knows the importance of making the finest quality zippers for designers.

But beyond production and supply they offer tutorials on their website such as How To Repair a Zipper, and How to Put the Slider Back on the Zipper -- excellent tutorials for designers, home-sewers and creatives who like their clothes and bags to zip up and look good.

One of our favorites... how to fix a jean zipper.
