Abstract: Following on from previous research, the possibility of using chitosan in preparing the pretreatment print paste for textile ink-jet printing was investigated but the final colour was not as good as expected. In this study, chitosan was applied separately on cotton fabric for ink-jet printing. A two-bath method was proposed and it was confirmed that a better colour yield was achieved with this method. However, the use of chitosan reduced the tensile strength of the ink-jet printed fabric slightly.
