Abstract

In recent years, curtain has come to a very important place in home textile industry. Curtain, drapery, upholstery, table cloth, sheets and pillowcases, bath accessories, napkins and chair wraps appears to take place within a wide range of home textiles. The textile fabrics most commonly used for home furnishing can be listed as cotton, rayon, linen, nylon, polyester, and their blends. Different techniques have been used by home textile manufacturers to enhance the decorative aspect of the home furnishing products. The most preferred fabrics in home textiles are polyester based fabrics for high durability and ease of use properties. In this study, curtain polyester fabrics with seven different types of weft yarns were woven as samples for the experiments. 300/192 denier 100 % Polyester tight spot (linen like) warp yarn was chosen for all fabrics. The aim of this study is to investigate the breaking strength, breaking elongation, abrasion resistance and air permeability properties of curtain fabrics woven with different types of polyester yarns.
