I think, tell Duro if that is a wholesale price quote, that is not good enough, not for wholesale and not for the "economic order quantity".
If you act like a retail customer, you will never get anywhere with a manufacturer or a supplier.
For anyone with hot knife cutters, made for that, that amount is not a big deal.
Right off the end of the table, scooped up, stuffed and sent out. It's a "work party" with proceeds to Hammock Forums, a charity of your choice like returning vets or their dependent families, or a vendor could take it on and sell it at the price quoted.
I really feel that is a retail quote. Look around at those fabric prices, retail, without the Multicam reflective blended-edge colors applied.
Nearly 1,500 people have looked at this thread: I think there is interest.

I agree, if you look at the prices od the 70D fabric that looks like a retail price.
It is my understanding that all print fabrics are coated because you can't print on impregnated fabrics, because the ink won't stick to the sil. Inpregnation is done to the thread before the fabric is woven, and coating is done to the final product.
so where are the likes of clark getting their camo silnylon? Here in the uk its almost impssible to buy impregnated "true" silnylon, its pretty much all coated. I have a supplier here who has a lot of the same material that hilleberg makes its tents from - very strong rip stop coated stuff which is pretty bullet proof, but in dollar terms, its about $15 a metre.
I talked to a manufacturer recently about doing a run of camo sil nylon and he said that its incredibly difficult to manufacture to the multi layers of dye required. He said they can do it, but it would be a massive minimum order. surely someone somewhere is making it for us to buy by the 10 yards/metres etc?
this would be awesome...I'm definitely in.
YESSSSS make it happen, im definatley in, i want a tarp/hammock/backpack/clothes in multicam for sure at some point in the future.
I'd definitely like a tarp with this pattern, if the price wasn't over the top crazy. I never considered the bear aspect. I've just spent my whole life in the woods and I prefer to blend in rather than stand out.
I'm interested as well
