where to get the best fabric?

Hello everyone. I need to redo all of the interior cushins in our Pearson 365. I want to find a unique fabric that is soft and homey yet will withstand the marine environment. I am also curious about mattresses for the v-birth. Any advise would be great. Thanks!

I have been researching this for the same project on our southern cross 39. To the best of my new found knowledge Alcantra-Ultrasuede seems to be the most durable,wide variety of colors,softest and of course most expensive.Are you doing the work your self?

I am in Charleston, SC. I am using William''s Upholstry located 20 minutes outside of Charleston. It is just a man, his wife & their son who do the work. I found the fabric myself and they are ordering the foam and making the cushions. I should get them back in another week or so and I will let you know how they turn out. If you are nearby and would like their number, let me know. Take care,
Hailey

where did you find the fabric? I have not had much luck locating the Alcantra-Ultrasuede on the internet.
