The development of natural fibre-based bio composite is taken as the alternative of using synthetic-fibre based composite. This is due to environmental concern and the depletion of non-renewable resource to produce synthetic fibre. Among those natural fibres that available in market, the woven kenaf fibre has received good attention as to be used for bio composite production due to the readability in some regions especially in Malaysia. In this mini review, the authors would like to address the recent studies on the woven kenaf fibre reinforced thermoset bio composite. Apart from that, the commonly used thermoset for bio composite production also been discussed. The outcome from this paper may highlight the applicability of woven kenaf fibre and increase the interest of researchers to develop their product by using woven kenaf fibre.
