The term ‘composite’ has been used in material science refers to a material made up of a matrix containing reinforcing agents. The beginning of composite materials may have been the bricks, fashioned by the ancient Egyptians from mud and straw. Nearly 70 years ago, a number of technical products and other commodity materials were derived from natural resources e.g., textile ropes, canvas and paper were made of local natural fibers such as flax and hemp. Emergence of polymers in the beginning of the nineteenth century inculcated the new era of research based on exploring the viability of natural fibers and their applications in more diversified fields.
