      I am not certain that the uwagi was required to have fabric that looks
      exactly like what is on the model. I suspect any elegant brocade with
      a Japanese/Chinese feel to it would work. I really like the first one
      you listed...and I think it would be delightful. You might want to
      check the Dalby book for combinations of color to use with it.
