Do I really have to get one in Germany only and enter an air plane to the U.S.?

When SG came here he mentioned this type of felt, so I imagine he knows a good source for it, so I'm surpised he has not chimed in on this.

Why not sew two lengths of 30-32 oz melton together and then felt in a washing machine?
We need to organize a 2cm felt mat, it must be a hard one. You cannot wash them not lay them on top of each other.
I have a 2cm feltmat in Germany, but how does this lool like me entering the airplane with a felt mat, they think I am crazy.
There is a place in Germany they produce them, maybe they can send one, but a felt mat is hard to roll...
Tailors need a felt mat not an iron board!

Ya know... I have a knack for finding materials in the most obscure places. I'll bet my father knows where to get an industrial grade felt similar to these dimensions.
Does it need to be fireproof (e.g. Nomex)? Or, will 20mm thick mostly wool felt be sufficient?

you should try it there: Daimer-Filze
Thank you Dukemati, that is exactly what a Tailor need.
The reason why you need a 2cm thick wool felt mat is that it sucks up the iron damp into the mat.
I have never seen a Tailor in Berlin who didn't have such a mat, nowadays the Tailors use expensive iron stations. I rather iron traditional.

so you iron like me! cross-legged with a board across your knees
Perhaps you should move up in the world. Use a sleeve roll (a wooden dowl, about 3 1/4" in diameter) and a soft shapeable tailors ham , instead of that board .

If it is to hard then it can't be shipped from Europe.

They send felt mats worldwide to tailors: 1.8m long and 1.0m wide and 1.0cm thick
The mat cost is about 160Euro + 150Euro Delivery by FedEx.
That is the only solution to get a Men-Tailor-Ironing-Mat.

Wool felt is expensive. Delivery as well.

Are there any others interested in this type of pressing board material?
By the way, everything I'm finding is 60" (154 cm) wide, meaning that you can get two 30" (75 cm) wide mats to the length. My Sussman table measures 60 cm X 120 cm (23 1/2" X 47 1/4") and that seems to work fine for my purposes. Can you work with a 75 cm X 1,5 m surface?
