In this study, surface treatment using laser engraving for fashion design on polyester fabric was investigated. The properties, such as weight, thickness, tear strength, tensile strength, colour difference and optical microscope view, of original and treated materials were evaluated. The results demonstrate that this treatment is a feasible design method for fashion design and it can engrave different motifs to change the appearance of the garment. In addition, this treatment's approach differs from ordinary design methods as there is no discharge of polluted water, it gives a fine appearance to the garment and can create added value.
