A new evaluation method of fabric wrinkles based on mathematical morphology is proposed. The method employs morphological size distribution to the shape of wrinkle caused by folding a fabric. The size distribution of a shape is measured by size density function; which shows proportion of areas of a part corresponding to each size in an image object. It is shown experimentally that the shape of wrinkle is characterized by the skewness of the size density function.
