    Cotton fibre was modified by condensation polymerization with functionalized silane coupling agents like vinyltriethoxysilane (VTES) and aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) in an ethanol/water medium. The modification of cotton fibre enhanced the tensile properties, softness properties, water repellence and wrinkle recovery, due to higher flexibility of the Si-O bond between the silane coupling agents and the cotton fibre. The ability of the modified cotton fibre to swell decreased in an aqueous solution, which affects the overall chemical suitability of the fibre. The optimized condition in which to modify cotton fibre was a monomer concentration of: 500% for VTES and 600% for APTES (depending on the weight of the fibre); pH 3.5 for VTES and 5 for APTES: ethanol-water ratio 40:60 for VTES and 80:20 for APTES; reaction time of 90 minutes both for VTES and APTES at room temperature (30&..
