Abstract: An integrated processing technique for preparing moisture management textiles or fabrics wherein fibers are treated with compositions which impart a hydrophobic or hydrophilic property such that when incorporated into the fabrication of composite structured textiles or fabrics a hydrophobic inner surface and a hydrophilic outer surface are formed. The integrated processing technique for preparing moisture management textiles also includes finishing the textiles or fabrics to enhance the fabric's liquid water one way transfer properties. The advantage of this invention is the possibility to manufacture the pure cotton woven/knit fabrics with the good moisture management properties.
