Many of the fabric systems are proprietary, or at least the fabrics are
proprietary which essentially amounts to the same thing.

Try Birdair on the east coast.

Otherwise there are excellent reference books on fabric and tension-net
structures available by Frei Otto.

For an absolute wealth of information on fabric and tension structures you
may try contacting Dr. Michael Botwin at the California Polytechnic State
University in San Luis Obispo (805-756-1314).  He has an absolute passion
for these types of structures.
