The most popular fiber in the world

Cotton is a seed fiber grown as a protective case around the seed of the cotton plant. Known to be the most popular natural fiber in the world, it is soft and fluffy to the touch and is usually off-white in color.



What Is Nylon Fabric?

Nylon is the name of a family of synthetic polymers that are commonly used to make a variety of different types of apparel and consumer goods. Unlike other organic or semi-synthetic fibers, nylon fibers are entirely synthetic, which means that they have no basis in organic material.

The use of this type of synthetic polymer in clothing began with a desire to find alternatives to silk and hemp for parachutes in World War II. At the time the war began, cotton was used for more than 80 percent of textile applications in the United States, and almost all other textiles were made from wool. By 1945, however, synthetic fibers like nylon constituted around 25 percent of the textile market share, and once the war ended, manufacturers sought new ways to market this new class of synthetic fabrics.

Nylon Fashion



  • High strength
  • Lightweight
  • Durability
  • Flexibility
  • Moisture resistance
  • High melting point
  • Good dyeability
  • Versatility


Nylon fibers are commonly used in the manufacture of clothing, upholstery, carpets, and industrial materials, as well as in the production of various types of plastic products. They are also used in the production of fishing line, ropes, and other types of cordage, due to their high strength and flexibility.

Properties of Nylon Fibre

i) Effect of acids: Less resistant to acids than to alkalies. Acid causes hydrolysis of amide groups, reducing or lose of affectiveness of inter-polymer Hbonding and thus weakening nylon.

(ii) Effect of alkalies: Prolonged exposure to alkalies will cause significant alkali hydrolysis of nylon polymer thereby resulting in weakening 1:he nylon. It has highly resistant to micro-organism and has high abrasion resistance.


Nylon fibre is a versatile material that can be used in many different textile and clothing applications due to its strength, durability, and moisture-wicking properties.
