Abstract

Home Textiles is one of the most rapidly expanding sectors in the technical textile market. The scope of hometech envelops all textile materials used in home and hygiene applications should be sustainable and also free from hazards. The consumers are now increasingly aware of the hygienic life style and there is a necessity and expectation for a wide range of textile products finished with antimicrobial properties. From the plant kingdom, one of the abundant sources of strong natural fiber is Vetiveria zizanioides and it has numerous properties such as antimicrobial property and inherently filled with good aroma. The extract was prepared with Vetiveria zizanioides powder using the solvent. The chemical components and phytochemicals were identified and screened from the extract and then antimicrobial activity was analyzed on the extract against standard microorganisms. The quantitative and qualitative tests of antifungal activity were tested on the fabrics against Aspergillus niger and Candida albicans fungi and antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923 and Escherichia coli ATCC 25922 of both positive and negative bacteria. The test results depict the clear picture and benefits for medical and home textile applications.
