Italian term or phrase: personalizzazione calandrata
speaking about outerwear: "...rifiniture degli interni come per esempio le fodere con personalizzazione calandrata e le tasche interne."

As far as I know the "personalizzazione" in question here is the label monogram (like the famous Louis Vuitton bags), but calandrata has stumped me. The glossaries say "calendered", perhaps someone could explain what this means...

customised calendering
Explanation:
or calendered customisation (it depends on the focus keyword)
or custom calendered material


CALENDERING, a finishing process by which paper, plastics, rubber, or textiles are pressed into sheets and smoothed, glazed, polished, or given a moiré or embossed surface. The material is passed through a series of rollers; the resulting surface depends on the pressure exerted by the rollers, on their temperature, composition, and surface designs, and on the type of coating or glaze previously applied to the material to be calendered.
