Abstract: This paper studies the use of laser engraving and aluminum foil laminating as an embellishing process to denim fabric. Laser technique is being applied in the textile and fashion industries because it is an ideal surface treatment for design application without usage of chemicals and water. This paper will explore a design method that combines laser engraving technology and metallic foil laminating for a sheening surface effect. Before the application of laser engraving, the aluminum foil is laminated on denim fabric with laminating adhesive. Then, the laminated denim fabric is engraved by the laser with a different DPI (dots per inch) as well as the pixel time (microsecond, μs). The performance of the laser engraved foil laminated denim fabric is investigated, including physical and mechanical properties. The study demonstrates an embellishment application in denim fabric, which developed metallic appearance with patterns on denim fabric combing the aluminum foil laminating and the laser engraving techniques. It carries out new possibilities for textile and fashion designs and reveals the future potential for green textile products.
