Our awning is made of "Ripstop", contrary to its name it rips beautifully and very easily. The supplier was unable to provide similar material for a patch but recommended "Tenacious Tape"!
My first impression, unbelievably expensive! Still cheaper, than a new awning I ordered the two rolls I estimated we needed.
The stuff is fantastic, easy to use, true to its name it sticks tenaciously and the result if not invisible, is not obvious.
No hesitation inrecommending it!
