German term or phrase:seitlich abgewebt
Schlauchgewebe, nahtlos oder *seitich abgewebt*. This doesn't make a lot of sense to me (see 'Schlauchgewebe' query for more context). If Schlauchgewebe is tubular, fine, then it's seamless - but why 'seitlich abgewebt'? Sounds like some kind of a seam or flat weave edge to me.
Thanks Johanna - I went with side selvage in the end. 'flat weave edge' may have been fine too but sounded a little too specific. I did have a sketch of the finished bag but it wasn't too helpful. 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: ...but your very own "flat weave edge" sounds pretty good to me!

taped side seams
Explanation: Tubular fabric is generally produced on circular knitting looms but it can also be produced on standard warp/weft flat looms. I would put my money on the fact that it isn't a knit fabric because I cannot immagine an airmail sack being produced out of knit fabric in polyprop - the ones I have in mind are all normal warp/weft constructions.Side seams are to be taped with the Polyprop-Bändchengewebe you mentioned in your former query (to make seanms waterproof). It anyhow is all rather mind-boggling. Did they perhaps provide an illsutration?
P.S. I'm new to ProZ and I can't figure out why my answers appear with 'hide' crossed off! I definitely didn't choose this type of option - if you read this message, in you reply could you please tell me where I went wrong? Nothing in the kudoz faq's to explain it.
