Abstract In a fastener tape woven with transparent or semi-transparent synthetic fiber monofilament yarn as warp yarn (2) and weft yarn (3), a plural of flexible yarns (6) are interwoven into a side edge portion (5) of the fastener tape (1) in a longitudinal direction of the tape (1) so as to form a fastener-element-mounting portion (10) for mounting fastener elements (14). The fastener-element-mounting portion (10) may be formed of an interwoven portion (11) having a flat surface, in which case continuous fastener elements (14) are to be attached thereto. Alternatively, a swollen core portion (13) may be formed on the surface of the fastener-element-mounting portion (10), in which case single-type separate fastener elements are to be attached thereto. As a flexible yarn (6), a finished yarn (7) having a bulk and produced by textured processing multifilament yarn is used so that mounting of the fastener elements are facilitated and the configuration of the fastener tape (1) is stabilized. Therefore, a fashionable fastener tape formed of transparent or semi-transparent woven fabric can be obtained.
