Geote xtile a newly emerging field in the civil engineering and other fields, offer great potential in varied areas of application globally. It plays a significant part in modern pavement design and maintenance techniques. Ideal materials for infrastructure work s, roads, harbors and many others. Growth in use of geotextiles worldwide for transportation application. Geotextiles have been used for thousands of years. Geotextiles were used in roadway constructions in the days of the Pharaohs to sta bilize roadways a nd there ages. Textiles are not only clothing for human body, but also for our motherland in order to protect her. Geotextiles has proven to be among the most versatile and cost - effective gr ound modification material. Geotextiles should fulfill certain requirements like it must permit material exchange between air and soil without which plant growth is impossible, it must allow rain water to penetrate the soil from outside and also excess water todrain out of earth without erosion of soil. To obtain all these properties in geotextiles, the proper choice of textile fiber is of paramountimportance.
