My favorite ratty old coat is away at the tailor being freshened up. I need to order some replacement parts to give the man who's fixing my beloved outerwear, but I don't know what to call these parts when I'm googling for shopping options. I need help efficiently and accurately searching for a piece of cord with which to re-affix the fasteners to my coat.

is my coat. Here
is a closer shot. See the cords that are holding the clips and d-rings to the front of my coat? I need to order replacement cord but don't know how to find it. What do people who sew call this kind of connective cord material?
It's braided and sort of nautical-looking. It's sewn in under the leather triangles and then looped around to hold on the clips and d-rings. Unfortunately I don't have any more pictures, as the coat is already in the custody of the tailor.
