English term or phrase: railroaded vs up the bolt (or the roll)
This refers to the disposition of the pattern of the fabric. For explanations, see, for example : https://www.sailrite.com/What-is-Railroaded-Fabric
I don't find the French terms.
Is there more specific terms than "en parallèle" and "en perpendiculaire"?
Thanks in advance!

Barré vs rayé


Explanation:
Pour des rayures en trame, il semble qu'on dise barré (rayures transversales)
. Voir dico de la soie : taffetas barré ou bien treysia.fr : étoffe barrée.

dans le sens de la chaîne/trame OU en colonne/ligne


Explanation:
A ma connaissance, il n'y a pas un seul terme spécifique en FR, mais on parle de motif(s) en colonne ou en ligne, ou bien de motif(s) dans le sens de la chaîne ou de la trame, ou bien encore de motif(s) dans la hauteur ou dans la largeur.

"Barré" ne s'utilise que pour un tissage particulier de taffetas.

Et si le droit-fil détermine le sens du tissu, le contre-fil est rarement utilisé pour les étoffes.
