Purpose This paper aims to prevent cotton textiles from fungi damage using eco-friendly aloe vera leaf extract, which was applied at a minimum amount, and cost-effective material. Design/methodology/approach Batch extraction method using methanol solvent; phytochemical analysis was investigated and three-level factorial design of experiment and analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used for the optimization of 27 test runs. The finish was applied by pad-dry-cue at distinct concentrations, and the chemical property after treatment was studied. Colorfastness and coordinates are analyzed. Cotton fabrics were cultured with Fusarium oxysporum fungi and the anti-fungal property was examined and reported according to AATCC 30–2004 standard. Findings The maximum yield of extract was at an optimum volume of 200 ml, 65 °C for 120 min. The effective antifungal fabric was achieved with minimum concentrations. There was significant strength loss in warp and weft direction. The treatment results in yellow-colored cotton fabric with fastness grade 3. The antifungal effect is durable until fifteen washes as the tensile strength losses were less than 1%. Research limitations/implications The findings of this work were based on samples considered in the laboratory. However, it can be reproducible at the factory production scale the treatment has the potential of yielding yellow dyed cotton fabric with multifunctional finishing. Practical implications The treated fabric is against Fusarium oxysporum Fungi which is one of the vital antimicrobial properties of textile apparel products for various areas of application. Social implications The natural extract material applied to a textile material is eco-friendly effective against microbes of cotton seeds during cultivation and apparel end-uses. Originality/value The work application of fungi resistance on cotton fabric using aloe vera active component was original; this work provides extraction of the active agent from aloe vera leaf, which is optimized statically and successfully applied for anti-fungal activity on cotton fabric.

There is a growing interest for producing multifunctional cellulose fabrics using green and sustainable technology. In this study, we explored an eco-friendly procedure for dyeing cotton fabrics with Malva sylvestris (MS) as a natural colorant and rendering antibacterial cotton fabric by the silver nanoparticles. MS colorants were extracted from dried petals in water using the ultrasound technique, cotton fabrics were dyed with the extracted MS colorant at 100°C for 90 min. The colorimetric data and colorfastness properties were investigated in the absence and presence of tannic acid (TA) as a bio-mordant. Results indicated that MS dye had a high potential for reducing the silver nitrate, so that the silver particle size distribution on cotton fabric was obtained 50–80 nm, and TA had a positive effect on the MS extract and reduced Ag on the cotton. Furthermore, the reduction of bacterial growth of the dyed cotton considerably (up to 99%) improved by AgNPs. The wash-, and light-fastness properties of samples dyed with MS were enhanced from moderate to good-very good by mordanting.
