I believe you are referring to piping.

It’s a nylon material of some kind. I used starboard as a replacement when redoing my upholstery. Not exactly the same material, but it worked.

Or it could be HDPE (High Density Polyethylene).
Are you looking to replace them?
Unless they are broken, I always just reuse them.

HPDE is a good material that will accept a curve if heated properly and secured in the desired position to cool. It also accepts and holds staples pretty well.

best thing to do is google back to back boat seats. finding colors that match is the hard part.
mine are made of plastic so i decided to recover mine. im doing them myself but i did get quoted $450 to redo them plus the vinyl
