We are surrounded by different types of textiles in our daily lives. Geotextiles is a bit different from them, but are very popular due to their use in over 80 different types of applications around us. These are simply synthetic fibres turned into a fabric with permeable qualities and are resistant to biodegradation. Originally, geotextiles were intended to be used as an alternative to the soil filters. These fabrics have been used to separate, reinforce, filter, protect or drain, depending on the textile’s intended properties. Often known as Geosynthetics, Geotextiles are mostly used in civil or environmental engineering projects.
