Nano technology is gaining popularity in various areas of application, out of which textile is one such. It has real commercial potential for the textile industry due to its unique and valuable properties. It is an approach that combines chemistry and physics to impart extra-ordinary properties to any material due to large surface area-to-volume ratio of the Nano materials. Nanoparticles may consist of various elements and compounds having the dimension between 1 to 100 nm having a large surface area-to-volume ratio and high surface energy, thus presenting better affinity for fabrics and leading to an increase in durability of the function of finishes. The present status of nanotechnology used in textiles was reviewed, with an emphasis on improving various properties of textiles. Research involving nanotechnology to improve performances or to add extraordinary functions to textile materials is flourishing. In the next few years, there is no doubt that nanotechnology will cover every field of textile industry.
