German term or phrase:abgepasst
abgepasste Teppiche und Tischdecken - was soll das heißen in anderen Worten?
Explanation: for your help: "Als Teppich wird ein konfektionierter, abgepasster Bodenbelag bezeichnet, als Teppichboden der in einem Raum zuzuschneidende Belag."
Abgepasst refers to a pre-cut, ready cut piece of fabric of a specific size etc. as compared to fabric you buy by metres etc. Sorry, but I don't know the English term for it. The carpet can be e.g. 2x4 metres and the table cloth 1x2 metres.
