    Try SMS fabrics in Oregon. They sell vintage upholstery material.

    That is typical of the late-50s "freestyle" jazz/beatnik music/style influence in materials and patterns.

  8. Littleman,
    Have you tried getting in touch with Schindler's fabrics? They're right there in Ohio, and they have probably the largest selection of patterned vinyls. Even if they don't have it, they might be able to tell you who made (makes?) it...

    Just for the hell of it.Give Ledgendary Auto Interiors a try Dave they might be able to reproduce it for you.It's a shot anyway.
     
  10. The pattern is rolled on that vinyl with a large heated drum. It has to be the full width of a roll (55-60"), and as big around as the repeat length of the pattern. If that drum isn't still around somewhere, I'd love to hear what it would cost to have that stuff reproduced...
