Abstract: With the increasing awareness of dangers posed to human health by overexposure to solar radiation and, in particular, ultraviolet components of radiation, due to the depletion of the ozone layer, efforts have been made to provide sun protective clothing while permitting outdoor activities. The degree of protection offered by such clothing depends on a number of factors. III this paper, an attempt has been made to coalesce the ideas of the various researchers who have developed ultraviolet protective clothing, and to understand the influence of UV rays on the structure and morphology of fibres , fabrics and fabric assemblies. The effects of humidity, chemical processing. dyeing with reactive/direct/vat dyes on cellulosics and their blends, and finishing chemicals on sun protection factor have also been highlighted.
