Abstract

This study evaluated the characteristics and sensibility of work clothes materials developed that took into account the work environment of major industrial settings, for which a selection was made according to spring/autumn use and winter use. The physical properties of the existing and test weaving of the work clothes materials were compared after the test weaving of work clothes materials through material design, which altered the yarn count, composition, weave and density of material. To evaluate sensibility of work clothes materials subjectively, seven ranks' semantic differential scale questions were developed with polar adjective pairs. The test weaving of work clothes materials showed improved performance (such as tensile strength, dimensional change, water vapor permeability, and color fastness) compared to the existing materials. The common factor analysis indicated that the explanatory power of the cumulative variance for the spring/autumn use and winter use was 71.19% and 69.53%, respectively.
