Abstract:

It is not possible to measure the handle of fabrics, which can be defined as the total senses felt when touching a fabric. Objectively with only one instrument and therefore in many researches concerned with fabric sensorial comfort evaluations were done subjectively without using any instruments. However, various instruments and tools have been developed in order to evaluate fabric handle objectively by means of the related physical and mechanical properties. In this study, in order to evaluate fabric handle of 20 different shirt fabrics objectively, multiple regression analysis was performed, from which both subjective and related objective measurement results were obtained. With an evaluation group consisting of 40 people, the fabrics were evaluated by using bipolar descriptors for the fabric mass per unit area, thickness, bending rigidity, drapeness as well as the thermal absorption of the fabrics were measured, from which 16 different parameters were obtained. By using control fabrics, the most appropriate equation was selected among the 10 different regression equations derived.
