Hemp Mat for Diving Board?

I have an old swimming pool diving board that was manufactured in 1937. I am attempting to restore it for display at our municipal swimming pool. When the board was new, it had a covering that looked like woven hemp. One small bit of the covering is still attached to the board. It appears to be thin hemp ropes woven together. The purpose of the covering was to prevent slipping. I’m in a desperate hurry. Our pool improvement dedications is coming up very soon. Where can I find a similar product? Judy Goeringer
