Where to buy teal cotton bar tape?

Does anyone know of a good source to get teal handlebar tape or a close color? Everything I've seen online so far is in a basic color.

The only thing I've found is for baseball bats but idk if that'd work.

Try searching for celeste bar tape rather than teal.

Yup. I googled celeste cotton handlebar tape and found Newbaum's cotton tape in lime green, which may be close enough. The price looked good too but you'll probably need two rolls.

Ironic... I am building up an old 10 -speed into a 'gentleman's racer' with old-style bars and an Alfine IGH, and when I went to visit the local bike guy he only had one colour of tape left - Celeste!
It does not look so great with the gold and black frame and fork so I am only keeping it on until the black cloth tape I ordered comes in.

My North Road bars only need one roll to do the whole thing and I am keeping the second roll of the celeste tape as a backup to encourage me to take good care of the cloth tape

No - Eastern Ontario, Canada. And the tape is plastic, not cloth.
