It is usually made from strips cut from a roll of tube fabric. This is a very important part of the rib structure and it should not be interfered with unless absolutely necessary. If it is superficial scuffing, as you say, then you can touch it in using a paint designed for the job. If it is seriously worn away or it is coming adrift, then a repair is necessary.

Welcome to the forum.
