When there is a pattern, a repeat is the number of inches on a fabric before a pattern repeats again.
This is important in interior design so you know where a pattern will begin and end. Depending on the pattern, it can look odd where you begin and end it. Also, knowing the repeat length is helpful for calculating how much fabric your project will require.
