Development of the theory of natural structure of woven fabric for warp and weft threads in woven fabric upon release from external loadings in the woven machine on the basis of the principle of minimization of potential energy is presented. The method of calculation of the forces interaction between the warp and weft threads in the woven fabric structure is shown. Spontaneous change of the disposition of threads in the fabric structure after the removal of external loadings takes place by minimization of the total potential energy level of the deformed threads. The method of calculation of the key parameters of threads in the structure of a woven 2 dimensional fabric is achieved on the basis of the theory of mechanics. The work can be extended to cover industrial types of fabrics to reinforce textile composites.
