EVA foam Vendors

Hi Everyone,
Is there any red brown eva foam out there that will come close to matching the color of African Mahogany? Is there any vendors that would carry it?

Mudhole sells thin sheets of "Brown" EVA, but that probably won't help your issue.

Unless someone else chimes in with a vendor, you might have to do the "cork" option ....

I am just guessing but is it possible to take white EVA and dye it?

It's a close cell foam so it won't hold a dye.

Thx for everyone's help. I even thought about yoga mats and would cut them into blocks on my bandsaw.. Still no red brown maybe deep red or burgundy.

Maybe a fade grip would be an option.

Mudhole used to offer a "wood grain" pattern EVA grip. I don't know if they still do. I wouldn't call them a match for any wood but they were on the very firm side. Be advised they don't stretch as much so you might have to ream. Again not something that actually looks like wood but it did have a grain pattern and were nice quality EVA.
