.... in jacquard weaves [OR woven fabric] with floral semis or floral patterns
Explanation:

Tapisserie mille-fleurs (à semis ou fond de fleurs)-- semis is used to describe old tapestries or flags; in architectural motifs, also.

SEE following book (or article) title:
The Formation and Sources of Early Byzantine Floral Semis and Floral Diaper Patterns Reexamined (diaper = lozenges or squares in this context)

TERMIUM propose
"scattered design" -- une solution juste... mais HORRIBLE!

Il y a tellement plus joli! On peut par exemple s'inspirer de ce qui suit :
a hint of seduction with a delicate
floral motif

micro-jacquard patterns

jacquard weaves
Small, repetitive motifs

patterned or embroidered
