French term or phrase:emploi et laize provisoires
This is one of the guidline items for the produciton of clothing items; other guidleines include product line, model reference etc. I know laize can eman width but I think it is also a liner for skirts, but my textile knowlege is not that fine tuned. Can someone help me out? What can they mean?
Explanation: I could only find one meaning through several dictionaries (Académie française and technical glossaries)
Some retailers associate coton or coton/synthetic linen with "laize" to indicate the price but no evidence of a specific association with one type of material
Hope this helps
Largeur d'un tissu, d'un bord à l'autre. On distingue, la laize totale qui inclue les lisières, la laize utile qui est la largeur du tissu sans les lisières, la laize tombée de métier (juste après le tissage) et la laize finie (après l'ennoblissement). http://tissage.estit.fr/terminologie.htm
