Default B&K tube tester covering advise needed

Looks like canvas or linen to me. Old novels used call suitcases of this material "canvas". Old car seat cover material used to be similar. They started adding some nylon about 1955? to make the stuff wear longer. I'd check an old car seat cover supply.

Go to a luggage repair place. Honest, they exist.

An upholsterer might be able to help as well.

Yep, a lot of stuff was made out of canvas back then, sounds like the chances are slim to none now.

People restore car seat covers to "original" for concours. This kind of material in low budget chevy or ford lasted a couple of years. But that is what they had. There are suppliers for those kinds of restorations.
