Nano-sized silver particles (AgNPs) were synthesized by easy and quite simple method, using pectin as both reducing and stabilizing agent. Solutions of AgNPs were applied to cotton fabrics in presence/absence of binder. The finished fabrics were examined for morphological and topographical features by using scanning electron microscopy which reveals that AgNPs- pectin composite are deposited on the surface of coated fabrics. Also, color coordinates were measured for the uncoated and coated fabrics to show the effect of nanosilver loading on the color of coated fabrics. The antibacterial activity of the treated fabrics loaded with AgNPs was evaluated against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus.
