German term or phrase: Steg
This word appears in the description of a cushion set for a garden chair. It is described as having a 'Steg und Doppelkordel'. The word appears in only one sentence and no info is given as to its purpose or where it is found on the cushion cover.

English translation:Steg = (probably elastic) strap
Explanation:
"Jean Paul Gaultier, der Männern einst Röcke anzog, steckt sie jetzt in Steghosen und knielange, gegürtete Trenchcoats, stülpt ihnen auf der Brust geschlitzte Kapuzenpullis über oder kombiniert ganz traditionell Hemd und Krawatte." Meant in this text is the little elastic strap that goes under the instep of the shoe. I suppose there is an (elastic) strap and a cord to hold the cushion on the chair.

Without seeing a sketch I could not be 100% certain it is correct, but it looks OK.

Explanation:
My Duden lists the following as one of the definitions of Steg:

"waagrechtes Verbindungssteil zwischen zwei Stuhlbeinen od.Tischbeinen."

As for the cushion, maybe rather than being on the cushon cover, it's a piece on which the cushion rests.

Explanation:
in this context it is likely to mean 'web' or 'webbed structure'; 'doppelkordel' here would mean 'double cord'
