Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to answer the question if and how mechanical fabric parameters being components of a formability coefficient as well as mechanical parameters being components of fabric handle influence the fabric drape. Therefore, all these parameters were measured for ten fabrics and correlated with the drape coefficient.
