accessories
Explanation:
the word is originally french:
http://www.francophonie.hachette-livre.fr/cgi-bin/sgmlex2?F....
fourniture - 2. (Surtout au plur.) Ce qui est fourni pour l'exercice d'une activité particuli?re. Fournitures de bureau. Fournitures scolaires. || Matériel, accessoires nécessaires ? l'exécution d'un travail ? façon, fournis par un artisan. Fournitures et main-d'oeuvre.

Seems to be used in other languages in the almost same form, esp. in German and Dutch. Depending on the context, it could be also translated as (fournituren being plural)
supplies, provisions
