Achilles and Pennel & Flipo are the two dominant forces in synthetic fabric manufacturing for marine applications. You can purchase material from them in a variety of colors, textures, decitex, and thickness.

Both have U.S. offices. However, they will probably not sell to an end consumer.

Also, CSM / Hypalon material is VERY expensive in small quantities...$100-$200 per linear meter.

For hypalon material, try NRS (nrsweb.com); for sheet EPDM you can try Mcmaster Carr (mcmaster.com).

You can get the appropriate glue from NRS as well (assuming you know your boats material.)
