TTwo blends of fibers were delivered in the presence and absence of Chorisia hollow fibers. The first blend was produced using the ratio of 22, 28, 22, and 28%, cotton and polyester wastes, raw bamboo, and Chorisia, respectively. The second blend was 33.33, 33.33, and 33.33 % cotton and polyester wastes by open-end spinning. Then, at that point, six woven textiles were produced by those yarns with satin structure. The effect of Chorisia hollow fibers on the properties of the produced fabrics had been investigated. The results showed that the presence of Chorisia hollow fibers with the blends has a positive impact on some properties of the produced yarns and fabrics, where it increased tenacity and elongation and decreased the unevenness% ( U%) of yarns, increased shrinkage and bending length all in both weft and warps direction and increased thickness, decreased pilling, air and water permeability, comfort, abrasion, and tear strength compared to our previous investigation. This could regenerate products with a high-value application and having a high mechanical performance rather than the current items from post-industrial fibrous wastes.
