I am looking for Cracked Ice vinyl in red for a customer. Does anyone suggest a good supplier for this vinyl? Thank you for any help you can offer. I have learned a lot on this form, you people are great.

Can't say I've ever heard of Cracked Ice vinyl but Greenhouse Fabrics has a good selection. Some of their vinyls look and feel so much like leather you can't hardly tell the difference. This sample has some nice grains in it.

I don't know of a wholesale outlet for cracked ice vinyl, but here is a retail place (NOT cheap):

Kodydog, It's the vinyl they used in the 50's for kitchen chairs. sofadoc, the cheapest I had found was at barstools & chairs at $31.95/yd. Thank you both for your input.

I do several jobs a year out of that stuff. I always let the customer furnish it. If I'm going to have to pay full retail, I might as well let the customer get it themselves. No use in me tying my money up in something that I can't mark up. If you find a wholesaler, let me know.

I like that idea very much. IF I find one I will post it for you. Thank you for your help.

The material is stocked by Richardson Seating.  The yard price is $35.00 but you can buy a roll for much less.  Here is how to find it on the site. https://www.richardsonseating.com/collections/upholstery-vinyl/products/cracked-ice-upholstery-vinyl
