A sail loft ought to be able to stitch it back together for you pretty quickly.
Tenara is also known as GoreTex.
Great stuff, but a bitch to sew with as it's so slippery that tension balance is difficult to achieve.

Solar Panel Cost Could be Reduced by 40% | Care2 Healthy & Green Living
A company named 1366tech has devised a way of manufacturing solar panels that could reduce their cost by forty percent, it has been reported.

Typically solar panels are created by cutting large sheets of silicon into small wafers. This process wastes nearly half of the silicon. 1366tech uses a different approach, making their silicon wafers at directly at the the small size used in solar panels (6 inches by 6 inches), and thereby eliminating excess silicon.
