    Are there couplers out there? Maybe you could pair two (or more?) six-footers to get the length you need. Not sure what the maximum feasible length for USB-C is, of course...

    What is your projected use for a longer cable? There may be other solutions, depending on your needs...
    What do you need to connect, (that can't be moved closer...) (?)
    (Too-long USB cables can have timing issues, or voltage loss if you need it for power/charging.)

    Try a hub. Every 6 feet, have another powered hub. See if you can make it a mile long and show us pics.

    In Japan it's fairly easy to buy USB-C cables in 3 meter and 4 meter lengths. I haven't actually bought one, so I can't say whether or how well they work. My issue was distance from power outlets, which I solved by buying a 4 meter figure-8 power cord instead.
