Welcome

I don't know the answer but you could also ask the same question on the 3D Scanning Users Group on facebook as they are all into that sort of thing.

Because of the scale, you could use a photogrammetry based solution. It would seem to me that the quality of the pattern is what matters most. Look at products like PhotoModeler, PhotoScan or similar solutions.

If you want to use a scanner, then you could use the David Laser Scanner (SLS-2).

Other options would mean a bigger jump in price.

Check the last couple comments on that video. It sounds like you might be able to get them to build you one. It's a pretty specialized application and I doubt you'll be able to find any off the shelf mass-produced versions.

Although you might be able to get a laser scanner that could reproduce the geometry with enough fidelity that's a pretty small part of the overall material properties. Especially for materials like leather or satin that exhibit subsurface scattering and fresnel effects you really need to do photogrametry with multiple light sources to try and capture them.
