      Peltier coolers are used to create a temperature differential between two faces as result of passing an electrical the material. They use the Seebeck Effect.

      As the result of a research on the phrase - flexible Peltier cooler - (no quotes) I found one interesting article:

      Virtually all other Peltier Coolers are based rigid ceramic products.

      Good luck on your search. It appear that you have an idea that is on the leading edge of technology.
