Abstract: The tensile, bending, shearing, compressional and surface properties of mulberry and tassar silk fabrics have been studied to investigate their hand values. Using the data obtained, the quality characteristics of mulberry and tassar silk fabrics have been objectively evaluated and then compared. It is observed that mulberry silk fabric is better in terms of shear stiffness, bending rigidity, geometrical roughness, hand values and draping behaviour but possesses lower compressional resilience as compared to tassar silk fabric.
