Abstract:

The study involved the determination of the effect of the modification of linen fabrics with health promoting products containing different substances such as vitamin E, beeswax and natural silk protein on the use features of the fabrics and their biodegradation. It was found that enriching linen fabrics with health promoting products contributes to the improvement of their touch, does not have a negative effect on the biodegradation process nor the whiteness degree and the modification effect is resistant to 10 cycles of care processes. The modification causes a decrease in the breaking force and thread slippage index in the stitches. However, the values obtained are in line with the requirements for linen fabrics used for clothing. The modification process also lowers the hygroscopicity, air permeability and, in some cases, water absorption as compared with fabrics before the modification.
