One pot synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) with well-defined size using polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as stabilizing agent and sodium borohydride (NaBH4) as reducing agent was successfully performed. Preparation of AgNPs was carried out under a variety of conditions including concentrations of AgNPs, PVA and NaBH4. UV-vis spectra and TEM images were employed to characterize AgNPs obtained under the said different conditions. Physical and mechanical properties of cotton/polyester fabric treated with the synthesized silver nanoparticles were measured. SEM and EDX were used to scanning and observe the morphology and elemental change pertaining to fabric surface. Antibacterial activity against E. coli (Gm –ve bacteria) and Staphylococcus aureus (Gm +ve bacteria) were successfully examined against the treated and untreated fabrics.
