Natural fiber mesh and other fabrics in interesting formulas that
might be worth trying are sold for erosion control. Coir nets are
stiff and long lasting, the erosion control netting sold at Home
Depot is jute (cheap) - also a possibility but not stiff and doesn't
last as long.
 
The coir (coconut fiber) mesh comes in different weaves
