Determination of a friction law that describes well the behavior exhibited by a polymeric textile, even under limited conditions, is very challenging. Most of the friction laws presented in the literature for polymers are based directly on experimental data. Howe\'er, textile materials have been known to deviate from standard friction laws that is used in practice. To quantify a textile material's behavior completely, one has to combine mathematical theory with experimental data. Hence, the focus of this work is to develop a methodology to mathematically characterize the frictional properties of polymeric textiles using experimental data.
