Re: Where to find Gi top material?

I've been searching online trying to find a source of gi top material, like my single weave gi. I don't know if I am searching with the wrong terms or what, but I can't seem to find a place I could just buy a couple yards of that heavy material for a project I'm working on. Does anyone have any ideas on what I should be looking for or someplace I can order like two yards of that stuff?
Check upholstery stores (or the "Home" section of fabric and craft stores such as Joanne Fabrics) for cotton duck. The super heavy duty 16-20 oz canvas designed for tents and awnings is best avoided. Online you can also track down hemp/cotton blends that look like cotton but will last forever.
