Fabric store should have the strap material on rolls
I just use stainless tie wire or the jumbo zip ties

Most boat shops have it in several colors to replace finger hole livewell and deck/storage door straps.

In the past, a quick replacement was a large dog collar or leash.

I use bailing wire. Or whatever I can find. I’ve even doubled or tripled up corn sack string.
