Abstract Successful results of textile materials finishing process in order to gain desired properties to the fabric according to customers' demands mainly depend on properly-carried pre-treatment stages. The present study covers twill weave cotton/polyester fabric's modification in alkaline medium at different temperatures and treatment durations through exhaustion (hot and cold treatment) and pad-steam process. An influence of the reduction agent addition was ascertained. Weight loss, water absorbency, vertical wicking, dye uptake, colour measurements, surface morphology and stress-strain characteristics were determined. Samples and recommendations of optimal alkaline treatment technologies are developed.
