Abstract: The structure and properties of non-woven jute fabrics were studied with reference to the characteristics of fibre, web, reinforcing material and needle-loom variables. The needle-punched jute web had very poor strength and dimensional stability but incorporation of a suitable reinforcing material improved the strength and dimensional stability of the non-woven remarkably. The tensile properties of non-wovens were strongly dependent on those of the refinforcing materials. Non-wovens made from woollenized jute fibre showed superior tensile properties in comparison with those of non-wovens made from untreated fibres.
