In the present investigation in-house synthesized colloidal nano-zinc was applied on jute fabric by pad-drycure technique. The fabric samples treated with zinc nano-particles were tested for changes in absorbency, air permeability, water permeability, electrical resistivity, antibacterial activity and dye ability. These properties were compared to their untreated counterpart. The treatment with zinc nano sol improves the physical properties along with the dye ability of jute fiber with direct dye. The treatment also enhances the antimicrobial efficacy of jute fiber.
