Abstract: The paper provides a brief overview of the major fibre yielding plants and their uses in India. This account includes data mainly based on field experience, market surveys, ethnobotanical information and other relevant literature available on this account. The enumeration of the species listed under various plant families provides ready reference for use and commercial names of important fibre types. The analysis provides the untapped wealth under this category for widening the base of fibre genetic resources, future collections and utilisation. The promising species thus indicated may provide scope for domestication and future cultivation.
