Bottom Rail - the hem at the bottom of the wrap. It spans the entire length of the wrap.
Top Rail - the hem at the top of the wrap. It spans the entire length of the wrap.
Middle Marker - small tag/marker in the middle of the wrap's length that tells you where the center of the wrap is located. Some Wraps will have one on the top and bottom rail, but all wraps will have one on the top rail.
Pass - any length of wrap that spans from one part of the wearer's body to another.
Tail - the end points of the wrap. Usually referred to as "long tails" when a lot of the wrap is hanging down after the carry is tied or "short tails" when there's only a bit of wrap left after tying.
Warp- The yarn/thread running vertical. A warp is dyed in one “color-way” or run.
Weft - The horizontal threads. One weft thread runs throughout the warp to bind them together.
