Abstract: Fabric appearance is always considered to be one of the most important aspects of fabric quality. Testing for fabric appearance is the process of inspecting, measuring and evaluating characteristics and properties of a fabric surface; the purpose of testing and evaluation is to assess the performance of a fabric or predicate its performance in conjunction with its end use. It can be performed according to well- defined test methods by industry-wide organizations. There are many aspects of fabric appearance that can contribute to a woven or knit fabric’s overall value and consumer satisfaction. In this chapter, an attempt has been made to explain the testing methods for assessing various fabric appearance attributes.
