Explanation: derived from "manche", or "sleeve" in French. Sort of a diminutive. Your text indicates that the tissue forms a "small sleeve". However, since the English world does not differentiate between a small sleeve or a larger one, it is up to you to decide whether or not you want to add the adjective "small"
