Replica Power Cords

Folks, I'm restoring some turn-of-the-century electrical equipment and
need help to locate replica cable for replacement power cords.

The equipment is rated for 110 vac and the power cord has a woven cloth
exterior. The old cable (rather flexible but greatly degraded) is quite
round and about 9/32 inch (0.270-0.300-inch) overall diameter. There is
a rubber jacket under the outer cloth braid. Each conductor has rubber
insulation with yet more cloth braid on its exterior. The color must
have been black or dark brown. The cable is two conductor, of course,
and probably 18 AWG.

Is there a source today for new replacement cable with the same
construction or appearance? Is there a website showing the cable?

Best wishes,
