And here is a vintage BB bleeding madras shirt that I found, of all places, at a street market in Bangkok:

The quality here is kind of crappy, to be honest, but the price cheap. From memory, I think it's something like $5 a yard. But they have a wide selection, and I think some would make for fun, custom shirts.
FWIW, I've found much better madras through Rosen & Chadick in NYC, but they're more expensive at ~$20-25 a yard, and their stock is both limited and fluctuating. Sometimes they have nice patterns in, sometimes not.

It still is produced in very small numbers on "handlooms", but only produced on order with pretty high minimums. They no longer produce and distribute stock though. Dyes are still made using vegetable dyes. The older stuff used 60' Singles and was silky. The stuff they churn out now is using 40's for the most part, good but not great.
One our our suppliers keeps dead stock bolts in his showroom that he refuses to sell and I have to sit and just admire it every time I see it.
