I was looking around gigantic fabric+accessory store in Korea and I think I found a good looking ribbed band which has equally distanced ridges. I was hesitant to get the one people are recommending since it was too wide and the ridges weren't equally distributed. This one is 2" wide and it seems like it only needs some dye to use it on the suit. I was thinking I should bring some back to US if anyone's interested.
How do you guys think?
Sorry for the huge pictures. I couldn't find a better photo hosting website than photobucket.

I know this is a month old post, but did you happen to bring any back with you?

I'm interested in this too - it actually looks a lot closer to the real deal in my opinion.

Ow no! I have only brought 3yds of them here but I do have some left with me. I'm not sure if it would be enough for anyone. But I do know where I can get them so I will see if I can contact the seller and ask if they do international shipping. If not, I might be able to ask my family to send them over. I will try D:

Did it happen to have a tag that said what it was called? Maybe people could find it if they had the name of the webbing.

No... it was sold in a kind of traditional market for fabrics so nothing really had brands, markings, or labels. Most of the stores there made the items themselves. If that's the case and I can gather some more people who are interested in it, I might be able to ask them to produce custom color(red-orange!)

Orange colored would be amazing. I'd also be interested in green for a related project. Wink
