And of course you want to find a Japanese manufacturer of these Flemish
Bow Strings for a Welsh Longbow? :-)

Are you sure you don't want to try making your own?

You might try taking a look at this file in the ARCHERY
section of my Florilegium:
bowstrings-msg    (10K) 11/ 6/98    Medieval bowstrings. Making

Or these two in the ARCHERY-FAQ section:
serving-FAQ        (9K) 12/ 5/96    Repairing and replacing your
string-mak-FAQ    (41K) 12/ 6/96    Making and serving your own

If you are set on buying the string, you might want to look at some
of the venders given in this file in the ARCHERY section:
arch-supplies-msg (18K) 10/28/94    Archery supplies and merchants.
