This paper describes the behaviour of deliberate creasing or pleating of apparel fabrics formed; for example; in skirts and trousers. In this study; woven fabric samples of two fibre groups were prepared. One is pure wool and woolblend-based group; and the other is vegetable and protein fibre-based fabric group (cotton; ramie etc.). The beauty or quality as measured in terms of the sharpness of creases of different fabric groups was evaluated.
