 French term or phrase: rapport Description of printed textiles Reproduire et couvrir : le rapport Sauf cas particulier, l’impression textile consiste à couvrir la surface d’une étoffe par reproduction d’un même motif, s’imbriquant avec lui-même à la manière d’un puzzle. Ce module de base, le rapport, est conçu par le dessinateur dans le but de s’adapter à la taille de l’outil utilisé. La mise au rapport consiste également à positionner les couleurs les unes par rapport aux autres : c’est le cadrage.

 English translation:repetition pattern Explanation:This has to do with generating points of reference, from which a modular unit can be repeated to create a surface-covering pattern. It has applications in branches of mathematics dealing with tessellation, topology, etc. as well. It looks like the word "rapport" is also used in English as it applies to fabric printing, so it likely doesn't need to be translated at all.
