Textiles have undergone wet chemical processing since time immemorial. Human ingenuity and imagination, craftsmanship and resourcefulness are evident in textile products throughout the ages; we are to this day awed by beauty and sophistication of textiles sometimes found in archaeological excavations. The paper mainly focuses on bio-scouring process, significant comparison between enzymatic and traditional scouring processes, contribution of enzyme to reduce cost and the pressure on environment and discusses some integrated Eco balancing aspects. The aim of the work was to evaluate the effect of bio-scouring treatment on the well bleached knitted fabric to identify their weight loss %, Absorbency test. The fabric samples were treated with different concentrations of bio-scouring and traditional scouring. The results obtained show that the bio-scouring Process better than traditional scouring with respect of time, energy and environment.
