Abstract

Underlying fabrics can change the appearance, function and quality of the garment, and also add so much longevity of the garment. Nowadays, with the increasing use of various types of fabrics in the garment industry, their resistance to bagging is of great importance with the aim of determining the effectiveness of textiles under various forces. The current paper investigated the effect of underlying on the bagging behavior of denim fabrics. The experiments carried out on four different denim fabrics as the main components including cotton, polyester and lycra, as well as three types of adhesive interlining and three common lining as the underlying components. The adhesive interlining was added to the fabric by using a fusing machine, and the lining was sewn to the fabric. The bagging behavior was assessed by extraction of the residual bagging height using the image processing method and the bagging fatigue percentage by stress-strain diagram. The results showed that with the addition of adhesive interlining and lining to the fabric, the bagging fatigue percentage increased. The lining sewn to the fabric reduced the residual bagging height. Also, the friction between the face fabric and the lining was an important factor that, the bagging fatigue percentage increased with increasing the friction, regardless of the fabric material.
