    This place has the Tweed, maybe they have a source for the Twill.

    I have tried to have some "velvet" like fabric remade.... Contacted a dozen of fabric manufacturer, even the company who did it back in the day. Good luck!

    Did the same with some hose tubing...

    Reproducing acurately things is always time consuming, often diapointing, and rarely a success. That being said, with enough time and money, you can do really cool things.

    One of the main issues with fabric is that you usually have a min order of 500 or 1000 meters. Hard to recover any investment with "obsure" things that you won't be able to find many peoples interested in .
