[F & I War ] drummer's bloody bag

I'm trying to determine what material the drummer's bloody bag (containing the cat of nine tails) was constructed of. I've seen a few references to velvet but have also been told the material was a loose knit cloth similar to what we'd call burlap. Any suggestions on places to search would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Will Kinton
