Hiawatha 15.5 stability?

where to purchase babiche/rawhide seats

I recently purchased a 15' foot hiawatha cedarstrip canoe and it came with cane seats (bolted in place)and I would like to change them to rawhide/babiche for a more traditional look.Is there a place that sells them retail? Is there any canoe building /refurbish businesses in Alberta?


Thanks
