In this study, the effect of air plasma on thermal comfort properties of cotton woven fabric has been investigated. The woven fabric samples were treated with plasma under various parameters like treatment time, the distance between fabric sample and electrode, and frequency of the plasma process. It was observed that air permeability of the fabric has a linear relationship with distance of the sample, and inversely related to time and frequency. The thermal resistance and water vapor permeability decreased with distance and increased with time and frequency.
