Jaguar used a material for the trunk mats and such through 50's and 60's - my guess it has the tanish-colored heavy woven Jute backing material for the mats is what we are looking for:

this reminded me of Porsche floor mats, I asked this distributor if he had anything, his response, Good afternoon,

We do have 2 options for you. I recommend the Grey Tweed, and then you can die it to be the color you need. Please see the image link below for a quality image sample of the Grey Tweed

The second option is the Brown Tweed pattern that we have, but it looks like it may not work for your requirements, due to the color pattern. Please see the image link below for the Brown Tweed.

Let us know what you think.

We don't really need to go looking for some a new material for the trunk interior. The original material was burlap, and it is readily available from many sources today, and it is cheap. It doesn't seem to be readily available with diagonal lines as was used by Cord in '36 and '37. The trick is to find some process by which to add the diagonal lines on a little more of a production line basis than one at a time, even though that does work. George Ehresman, who was responsible for restoring some 27 Cords, told me he used that technique when I was looking at the last one he restored, so it has been done more than once.
If you can get the diagonal lines on the burlap, the next step is to adhere the burlap to a jute backing. Originally it was needled together, today we have many types of spray adhesives that would make that job pretty easy, even for amateur restorers.
