The article focuses on wrinkle-recovery treatment for khadi and handloom fabrics. Handwoven and khadi fabrics are not usually preferred internationally because of the absence of efforts to improve fabric quality through pre-treatments and finishing, such as wrinkle-free finish and high-density press. Cross-linking agents may be used to recover from deformation stresses and avoid wrinkles but reaction would be dependent on changes in the physico-chemical properties of the fibers. The ability of free hydroxyl groups in the amorphous region to bind is seen as the cause of the creasing behavior of cellulosic fabric.
