Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer material, which is extensively distributed in plants, marine animals such as tunicates, fungi, bacteria. Nowdays, nanocellulose such as cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs), cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs), and cellulose nanowiskers (CNWs) have come into the spotlight as reinforcing fillers within nanocomposites including reinforced textile due to its low cost, abundant, light-weight, renewability as well as nano-scale dimension. This article has focused on the employment of cellulose nanomaterials in the preparation high performance fabrics.
