Make one out of  1/8 inch thick peg board. Paint it  and then lace leather strips through the holes on one edge to make the back binding.

3mm aluminium tread-plating.  Strong, light and it looks good.
You can also lace it like Burf says.

Black leather on the shiny aluminium will look very good.

1/16" thick plywood.  You can get it at the hobby shop or woodworking shop.
