How to Get Leather Strips in Project Zomboid

Project Zomboid

Tailoring is a big thing in this game, and that means you need materials to make clothing and armor. Project Zomboid Build 41 introduced new sources of materials, as well as recipes to craft. There are a few things you can do with Tailoring. You can add padding to all your clothing. Each level of Tailoring improves the defensive effectiveness of this padding. This could help save you from a zombie bite, so make use of it when you can. You can also patch holes in clothing. Some items like shoes cannot be repaired.

But to do any of this, you need materials. And if you want to deck yourself out in cool leather garb, you need Leather Strips in Project Zomboid.

The best way to get these strips is to break down clothing items. You need to specifically focus on Leather and Denim items, as these yield Leather Strips and Denim Stips respectively. Ripping up other clothing types and sheets yields Ripped Sheets. You need Scissors to do this. Scissors can be found in desks and sometimes in storage shelves. Schools are a great place to find them.

As you rip more clothes up, you get more XP for your tailoring skill as well. At level 8 Tailoring, you will be able to repair holes completely with the right kind of fabric. So just get to that point and you can repair any clothing item if you have the mats.
