2 RG's looking for suitable velvet, doesn't exist in Iceland

Hi guys.

We're 2 guys here in Iceland, who are working on their Royal Guards uniforms, we've ordered our helmets from Kamino Custom. We're collecting material to build our own forcepikes, and I think we've found the boots (we're going for black boots since we're doing the AOTC Royal Guard).
But we're in a dire situation with our soft cloth materials, there's no velvet to be found in Iceland, nothing but some cheap, stretchy polyester velvet, that's not acceptable. Our tiny outpost only consist of 5 guys, and we 2 are the first ever Royal Guards in Iceland.

So I wanted to ask our fellow Nordic Royal Guards(since Iceland is a nordic nation too) where you got your velvet for the outer and inner cloaks and even, where you got your gloves?

Hope you can help us.

With regards
Jóhann and Gísli Baldur

I bought my fabric for my cloaks in London. Gloves too.
