Tension?

Hello smart people- Don't know much about physics but need to know what this action is called as far as why the cloth would hold by the tension created from folding through object and tightened. Yeah pic is horrible hope you understand though! Thanks much

Friction between the cloth and the clip keeps the cloth from sliding. As you add tension, it increases the force between the cloth and clip, which in turn increases the friction which opposes movement. Same principle as what happens with a knot.
