The field of material science turned out to be very well known and even minded with a colossal desire for composite materials that display the positive attributes of both the parts. Worldwide there has been a lot of interest to tailor the structure and composites of materials on sizes of micrometer scale. Hence, a systematic review on the preparation, properties, and applications of composites is extremely important. So here, we took bamboo fiber from natural fiber and carbon fiber from artificial fiber and prepared fiber-reinforced composites with the help of resin polyester. The fiber-reinforced composites with rock dust as filler material have also prepared. By using hand lay-up process, we prepared these composites. The thus formed polymer matrix is tested under various mechanical properties like a tensile test, bending test. Then the properties of fiber composites are compared for natural and artificial fibers, and also, the properties of composites are calculated in which filler materials are added. Being environmentally friendly, applications of composites offer new technology and business opportunities for several sectors of the aerospace, automotive, electronics, and biotechnology industries.
