Side plate?


Explanation:
Cartella can be side plate when referring to weapons, but I don't know if this term could also apply to materials used to construct an armoire. In any case maybe this term may lead you to more information. Good luck.

Explanation:
Of course, I could be quite wrong, but in my experience it is unlikely that the word "cartella" could refer to a type of material - let's face it, wardrobe doors are made out of wood or wood composites such as particleboard and then faced with melamine, veneer, etc..
I have found instances in which this word can refer to a surround or frame. Alternatively, it could also refer to a sample card presenting different types of door materials.

Explanation:
I agree with dsmith. It sounds very strange to me as a term referring to material. I am quite sure it refers to a sort of catalogue with the different material to finish the armoire,

What is context for "cartella"?


Explanation:
We are Italian translators of financial and legal documents. Your definition of cartella is unknown to us. Did you find that in dictionary?

All italians know this word, but not "nel contesto delle ante di armadi"

Qui qualcosa no va.

Nonsense


Explanation:
The word Cartella makes no sense when you are talking about a material for cupboards or furniture.
Where did you get that description ?
