Textile for historic airplane

We are in the process of conservation a historic aeroplane and would
like to cover it with a new textile. The aim is to let the aeroplane
fly again. The new covering is to match the old one. Therefore, we
are looking for a textile which is specifically made for this
purpose. It has to fulfil the following demands (German Standarts DK
677.064:629.73 of 1968):

    Cotton yarn 100 dtex x2

    Plain weave, wrap density 33 +/- 2 threads per cm; weft-density
    33 +/- 2 threads per cm

    Finishing: mercerised, mould-inhabitant

    Width: minimum 130 cm

    Weight: 135 g/m2 +/- 5%

    Maximum elongation per warp an weft 13% (at 850 kg)

    Tensile strength per wrap and weft: 1300 kg/m
