Re-bolstering cloth Recaro seatsRecaro

I'm looking at replacing the worn bolsters on my cloth Recaros (wing-backs).
After searching online i can't seem to find much in the way of the foam bolsters or the cloth.
I have a friend who does upholstery, he's said he can do it but i need to source the cloth, i see it's called 'Monte Carlo' in the sales brochure, so i've tried googling etc but can't find anything.
Anyone here ever done this or have any ideas? I'm thinking i'll need to ask VW or Recaro?

If you can't find the correct cloth then perhaps you could do a part leather re-trim?
I couldn't! I'd have to have them as they were when new if i was to refurb them. I'm sure it's the same cloth as standard cloth seats 'Monte Carlo/Anthracite', just not sure if it's available in either Recaro bolster shape or by sqm/unshaped ..
Done my entire drivers seat on my mk4. Had to order all the stuff from vw, cost a small fortune. Wasn't the easiest job I've undertaken but worth it.
I did find a thread on here where someone got prices for leather Recaro parts and it was pricey!
