If you can source your own fabric have you heard about these guys, http://molloyandsons.com? Some of the stuff looks really good, and nice and heavy (19oz and up I think?) plus they sell to the public. https://www.flickr.com/photos/molloyandsons/with/6791986137/
I'm also curious about this. They seem to be a similar shape so it might be a useful comparison...Thanks!

FYI, Minnis and Hunt Winterbotham swatches are available directly: https://hfwltd.com/swatchrequest.aspx I got some fresco samples that way. Don't expect a response to the form submission, but the swatches arrived very quickly in the mail.
