Warp and weft
Explanation:
I have found numerous examples of these words used with textiles on a number of internet pages.
For example:
Warp and weft patterns. To make our program easy and
natural for both experienced textile designers ...
From http://www.arahne.si/pattern.html - 4k

On the web pages the two words are always used together.

warped, weave


Explanation:
With a fabric, it's either a knit or a weave, and this one is a weave (trama) and warped would mean that there's something wrong with the fabric's design, etc. Warped is an adjective here.
