A comparitive study on bamboo and modal woven fabrics and garmentation of kurthi with fragorance finish


Ragghi, Dr. G Gabriel Prabhu

The present study focus on the development of kurthi with bamboo/modal 30’s and 40’s count blended woven fabric. Fragrance was given to the fabric by using rose extract and essential oil by applying microencapsulation technique and pad dry-cure method. Various parameters of the fabric like abrasion, wick ability, bursting strength, water drop absorption, Water Vapor Permeability, Air- permeability and water drop absorption tests were evaluated. Moreover the fabric quality was tested for washing property up to 50 washes and the quality of the fabric was also assessed. Results revealed that the blending property of Bamboo/modal 30’s count and 40’s count was good when compared to any other fibres. Further as an application part woven fabric was also designed for girls, which showed a good compatibility and dermally safe product. This study pays a way for the usage of eco-friendly and dermatologically safe woven fabrics from Bamboo/modal 30’s and bamboo /modal 40’s count.
