Hmm... well RK has these photoswirl backdrops (near the bottom of the page) but I think they look a bit light in colour to me

Or you can make your own

You can get 108inch wide 100% cotton bed sheeting fabric from various places online, around 3.95 a metre I think.
Where the above says RIT dye, you'll probably want some sort of Dylon dye in the UK and follow the directions on the package. The way to get the marbled effect is to to kind of scrunch the whole fabric into a ball and then tie some twine around it. The tighter and more twine you use, the more white parts you get.

If you're in Hyde Manchester (is there another?) try Calumet.
