What is it about?

With the aim of giving a synopsis of the development of natural renewable textile materials, this article first looks at the classification of textile materials and identifies the natural renewable materials that exist in the textile world. It explores different application domains of wearable and non-wearable textiles and their sources, and briefly discusses the processing technologies of different natural textile materials. A comparison of properties of the natural fibres was made using the Ashby charts to give some guidance on its applicability as textile materials.
