In this study, 15 parameters representing textile properties are evaluated by the psychophysical method of categorical judgment with samples presented either in a light booth or on a display to investigate human visual perception based on the textural features of textiles. Visual perceptions of textiles can be expressed by the properties of regularity, smoothness, and warmth, which respectively explain the geometric placement rules of primitive elements, depth information, and emotion of textiles. Textiles with large primitive elements have high regularity and coarseness, whereas textiles with subtle primitive elements exhibit randomness and smoothness. Texture analysis results of the surface samples coincide well with those of display samples.
