Fabric Touch Tester (FTT) measures a range of fabric hand properties including softness, smoothness, fullness and coolness. It provides objective measurement of fabric hand properties that complies the requirement of the latest China textile standard FZ/T 01166-2022 on textile fabric touch determination.

Fabric touch and hand feel refer to the tactile sensations experienced when touching or wearing a particular fabric. It determines the comfort, functionality, and aesthetic appeal of a fabric. FTT stimulates the feeling of touch when human body comes into contact with a piece of fabric. With the development of FTT, the evaluation of fabric can be quantified and more objective, facilitating manufacturers in the selection and development of fabrics and effective communication between manufacturers and their clients.
