Abstract: Fabrics are often utilized in the construction of various types of bags, specially traveling bags, where strength, flexibility and durability are important. The aim of this research is to produce woven fabrics suitable for being used in traveling bags. All samples under study were produced of polyester yarns 50, 70 and 100 denier .Three weft sets were used 60, 80 and 100 picks /cm and three fabric structure (plain weave 1/1, twill 1/4 and satin 5). Samples were coated using P.V.C in order to produce a waterproof, moisture vapor permeable laminated fabrics and having perforation to provide ventilation to the user. The influence of previous parameters on the performance of the end-use fabric was studied. On the other hand physico-chemical properties including, tensile strength and elongation, abrasion resistance, water permeability, water repellency, tear resistance, thickness and weight were evaluated according to the final product needs. Some more results were reached concerning structures and materials. Most samples have achieved the expected results.
