    Many thanks to you both. Are these trademarks? I wondered if there was a definite name you would use here. A friend suggested net, which is not what I was looking for.


    Many thanks for the links, and suggested terms.

    Some of them may be trade-marks, but most appear not to be. You'll have to check each individual case if it is important.

    I can't help with exactly what you are looking for, because only you know what that is. If there is a word in your own language, use a dictionary to translate it into English, and then post the English word here to see what we think of it.

    Thanks again. Though not sure yet, I suppose it's called "tulle". I hope it's a common name for the fabric.



    Cheers!
