The concept of sports is one of the most important areas that contribute to the economic and social development of countries by enabling them to be healthy individuals by affecting the mental, physical and spiritual structures of people positively. In line with the technological developments, as a result of the increase in the living standards of people, the expectations from the clothes and other equipment they use while doing sports have gone beyond just being suitable for the strength, design and fashion elements, and the importance given to the performance and the comfort of the clothing has increased. Sportswear is expected to offer comfortable mobility to the body, not to hold sweat and water, and to have comfort features such as breathability. These functions, which are expected from the fabrics, make a visible contribution to the performances of sports people. In this study performance characteristic of fabrics used in activewear was measured by using SWARA and MABAC methods. The criteria are weighted by SWARA method and suitable fabric for active wear are determined according to the criteria were calculated by MABAC method.
