Abstract: Around 100 different samples of commercially popular silk fabrics were collected and tested for fabric constructional particulars and two functional properties, viz abrasion resistance and bursting strength. The silk fabrics were tested for abrasion resistance on both Taber type and Martindale testers and the end point of the test was determined as per the pinhole and weight loss methods. Abrasion resistance, expressed in terms of number of cycles to form a pin-hole, showed better consistency in terms of various inter- relationships. The interdependence of factors influencing the abrasion resistance with other functional properties have also been deduced.
