|Abstract:||In this study, lavender oil microcapsules have been synthesized, characterized and then applied on cotton fabric through padding followed by drying and curing. The treated samples are evaluated for wash fastness, tensile strength, stiffness, and the most important, release rate from treated fabric. Most of the synthesized microcapsules are found in the range of 10-30 microns. Cross-linking with DETA shows improvement in the shell morphology with slow release of lavender from treated fabric. Stiffness of the treated fabric increases proportionately with increase in concentration of microcapsules with simultaneous fall in strength.|
