From yarns to fibers to fabric, a finished garment goes through various challenges to meet our requirements. One of the major factors that affect a woven fabric is ‘Abrasion Resistance’. Abrasion is basically the mechanical deterioration of fabric components by rubbing them  against another surface. It ultimately results in the loss of the fabrics’ performance and its appearance. This paper shall deal with the various aspects of a woven fabric with respect to abrasion resistance, its tests and various experiments and the effect it has on the weave of the fabric.
