The main objective of the study was to develop functional products using herbal finished cotton fabric. The cotton fabric was finished with medicinal property containing plant source viz. neem (Azadirachta indica) leaves extract. The herbal extract was applied to cotton fabric through pad-dry-cure technique using citric acid as cross linking agent. The cotton fabric finished with herbal neem extract was assessed for antimicrobial efficacy and 7 percent neem leaves extract showed 70.01 and 50.50 percent inhibition for S.aureus and E.coli, respectively.
