Strength has direct consequences with the polyester content percentage of the cotton polyester blended woven fabrics. The findings of this research proved that strength is increased if the polyester content percentage is increased in the cotton polyester blended woven fabrics and vice versa. Three types of cotton polyester blended woven fabrics of different composition and constructions were used in this research and for doing the required tear and tensile tests. Finished fabrics were collected from the fabric mill for conducting the required strength tests in accordance with ASTM D2261 standard (tear) and ASTM D76 standard (tensile). This research proved that strength depends on the polyester content percentage of cotton polyester blended woven fabrics and it opened a potential way for the scholars to further study in this field.
