Abstract: This short review deals with the possibilities for the development of advanced composite materials with natural fibres as reinforcement. In this paper natural fibre reinforcement from micro to nano level is described. The length scale of the natural fibres could be controlled from macro to nano scales to fabricate macro, micro and nano composites in order to meet the end requirements. By modifying the interface and using novel processing techniques a variety of products could be manufactured.
