Default '29 Briggs Town Sedan Interior Materials

I am hopefully getting close to putting the interior in our '29 Briggs Town Sedan, but have been unable to find a source for the robe rail cording (same as used in the rear door "grab" pulls) or the window shade fabric with the diamond design. Does anyone have a source for either of these (neither Lebaron Bonney nor Cartouche have accurate materials)? Thanks in advance for everyone's thoughts and suggestions/recommendations.

Dick, check with Marco or Bill Sturm on whom they have used, but if I recall correctly, several years ago Bill had a lady in the New England states that had a small loom make the window shade fabric however I am not sure if she is still around. I suspect you would need to do the same to fabricate the robe rail.

Unfortunately I don't recall who I used for the car below as that was 25 years ago. I put original shades in it but new robe cord and assist straps. On other cars I used original stuff or they were 'drivers' and the owner not fussy enough to go the extra mile. If someone is still making this stuff then Bill will know.

Dick, I remember finding out about the lady mentioned above from the MAFFI table in Vancouver. I don't remember if she is still doing this anymore though.
