This paper intended to give an insight of the textile material utilization as reinforcement in the composite materials. The discussion on textile definition and categorization will give some ideas for the reader to recognize textile materials and its role in this system. Simple categorization is referred to which textile materials are clustered into fibre, yarn and fabric regardless whether it is made synthetically or naturally. For every basic textile material form, few selected recent works have been discussed to show the utilization of textile material in research and industry. Composite made of textile fibres form is limited to low and medium load bearing application due to the difficulties of controlling the alignment, dispersion and distribution of fibres. Whereas yarn reinforcement gives more control on the composite materials due to the fibres is aligned in a yarn but the issue is more on the limited fabrication method. Utilization of textile fabric in composite as reinforcement is well recognized for high performance fabric so it is with natural fabric. Nonetheless, there is a limit of work considering fabric properties or parameters when characterize its composite to understand the fabric contribution in composite material.
