The time dependency of node parameters like nodal length and nodal distance has been studied. Aesthetic properties encompass draping, stiffness and recovery properties of fabrics and they also have a significant influence on each other. It is also known that grey fabrics on being chemically treated tend to exhibit a change in their physical, mechanical, aesthetic and transmission properties. The work reports the time dependency of different union fabrics prior to and post their washing treatment. Time dependency assessment has been done on the basis of changes in the node parameters for all fabric samples. Regression equations have been developed showing relation between aesthetic properties which include bending length, total crease recovery angle, nodal parameters and structural property of fabric for a particular blend.
