Dutch term or phrase: roosblaadjes
Context: "In de beschrijving is met een naadtoeslag tussen 0,6 cm en 1 cm gerekend bij elk strookje, afhankelijk van de materiaaldikte zoals bij het tasje, en de verwerkingsmanier zoals bijvoorbeeld bij de roosblaadjes."

I know the word means literally "(little) rose-leaves" - but here?
