These designs were used for making prototype samples of khes. The samples were evaluated on the basis of design, colour combination, weave pattern, texture and overall appearance. Majority of the respondents preferred design S8 of khes which was ranked first. The most selected khes design was prepared and evaluated for the contemporary usage of khes by 90 respondents.
