Nylon strap for making parachute

Postby Space Mark » Wed Mar 13, 2013 3:20 pm

Does anyone know of a good source for flat nylon strap/flat tubular nylon as used in the making of parachutes?

I want to try making my own parachutes this year to save money, I've ordered some cloth and kevlar thread (was cheaper than buying nylon thread locally) but I'm not sure what the reinforcing material is called or where to get it.

Any suggestions?
