Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine if the preferences in clothing fabrics and preferences in home furnishing fabrics are similar or different in color, design size, and line. The relationships of age, education, and training in color and design to agreement of clothing fabrics and home furnishing fabrics preferences were also investigated. Thirty slides from the Compton Fabric Preference Test (CFPT) were used to measure color and design size preference in clothing; thirty slides from Hada's Furniture Fabric Preference Test (FFPT) were used to measure color and design size preference in home furnishings. Twelve slides for clothing and twelve slides for home furnishings were developed by the investigator to measure straight and curved line preferences. These slides were similar in appearance to the CFPT and the FFPT and were combined with them. All the slides were of the paired comparison format. Two fabrics were shown on each slide and the respondent was to select fabric 'A' or 'B' for each pair. The dimension that was selected the majority of the time for each variable was designated as the preference of the respondent for that variable. Demographic information was obtained from a questionnaire submitted along with the answer sheets for the two tests. The two tests were given to eight groups in Salem, Oregon, who agreed to participate in the study. A total of 117 women were tested; 13 were eliminated from the sample as they did not fall within the specified age range, and two additional persons were disqualified because their answer sheets were not completed. The sample was 102 women between the ages of 25 and 65 years of age. For statistical analysis, the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient was used to test the significance of the relationship between clothing fabric preferences and home furnishing fabric preferences in color, design size, and design line. The same statistical measure was used to assess the significance of the relationship between clothing fabric and home furnishing fabric preferences for the different age groups, educational levels, and training levels. A z test was then used to test the significance of difference between the correlations within each demographic group. Frequency distributions were used for description of the demographic data. From the data, it was found that a preference in clothing fabrics and a preference in home furnishing fabrics have a significant relationship. This relationship was found for all three variables: color, design size, and design line. Preferences for small design and curved line were found for both clothing and home furnishing fabrics. A slight preference for warm color in clothing fabrics and home furnishing fabrics was found. Levels of education, age, and amount of training in color and design had no statistically significant influence on agreement of clothing and home furnishing fabric preferences in color and design.
