This neuter noun is applied to bedspreads, hangings, patches, mantles, decorative embroidery -- most famously in the synoptic Gospels: "no man sews a patch onto an old garment" (Matthew 9.16, Mark 2.21, Luke 5.36). See generally LSJ s.v. (web address 1). Glossed by Hesychius (epsilon4641) as pw=ma "lid" or r(a/kos "ragged garment." The present, rather gauche, entry has no parallel in other lexica.
