Visual Impression Evaluation of Polka-dot Textiles Covered by Transparent Fabrics
Author information

2015 Volume 14 Issue 2 Pages 305-314


The visual impression evaluation of the white polka-dot textiles with six base colors, covered by the transparent white or black polyester georgette fabrics with four different cover degrees, 0 (uncovered), 0.48, 0.58 and 0.74, were examined by means of the semantic differential method with 12 pairs of adjectives. The results were compared by those obtained for the textiles without the polka-dot patterns. The impression became weaker in the most adjective pairs for the larger cover degree and was, in some cases, shifted in between the paired adjectives, one side to another. The impressions especially tended to be more “elegant”, “adult-like” and “humble” by the covering. It was found that the ratio of the magnitude of the covering effect by the black fabrics to that by the white was constant for each adjective pairs independently of the textiles patterned or un-patterned and of their colors.
