OLED display cable

Hello all,
I'm working on a project that requires using a small oled or lcd display with a long FPC cable, because the display will be far from the board. I'm using LCSC as my supplier. However, I cannot find any display with a long enough cable. So my question is, is there a specific manufacturer that does displays with custom cable length?
Or of there's any other solution?
I know that I can design another "carrier" pcb for the display only and this attaches to the main pcb, but I'd prefer if everything is in one PCB.

this is tricky. even if you find one specific display which would fit your need, question will be if you still don't want to use a standard display + a carrier/adapter board which you would design. if this is only to build 1 board, special display will be fine, if you would like to manufacture it in bigger quantities, standard display + adapter may be a better solution. But to answer your question directly, I don't know that kind of display, but I often try on amazon to find some unusual hardware from china.

Thank you for the answer
The problem is that it's supposed to be mass produced, so I was looking for a place to get steady supply of displays

not sure about mass production though, you may ask them directly if you find suitable display

Do not forgot the often HUGH EMC problems that displays cause. Long cables... long distance make it much more difficult to fix/solve.
