German term or phrase: Stoffcoupon
Hello,

does anyone happen to know what a "Stoffcoupon" is called in English?
From what I understand, the term describes the amount of fabric embroidered in one go by a machine. (https://www.heimarbeit-vorarlberg.at/sammlung/coup-isco)

If it exists, I need one word or a short explanation as this is used for localizing software.

Thanks

Also check the bins outside the shops, where you’ll often find discounted remnants or “coupons,” pre-cut lengths of fabric. Typically the coupons are about three meters (a little more than three yards).
