Coloured Bar Tape

Hey Guys, I'm getting towards the end of a build on a brown and burgundy Peugeot. Thing is, I can't find any burgundy bar tape to finish it off with. Anyone know of any sources? I've looked at all the LBSs and online, but to no avail.
Any hints? Burgundy tape would really make it pop and I'd like to get some.

Don't know if you're into Benotto Cello tape but these people have Burgundy.

If you'd consider brown cloth tape, I can recommend this ebay seller highly.

Its available in cork, I've seen it on another bike a few years ago, just don't know where he got the tape. (Edit Deda Purple? Don't think this is what I remember but check it out, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/Deda-PURPLE-Road...QQcmdZViewItem )
