Abstract: Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), a polymeric optical fibre, has been woven with cotton and polyester in a specific weave pattern to assess the light for light emitting textile application. The illumination of clothing system is primarily influenced by the weave geometry. The sateen weave shows better illumination as compared to twill weave, as the weft bending angle of sateen weave is less due to more weft float in the weave. The opportunities of integration of PMMA material into the clothing system have been investigated comprehensively.
