Abstract: In this paper, different concentrations of cellulase enzyme were used for treating linen fabrics. The pretreated linen fabrics were dyed using a bifunctional reactive dye at various concentrations. The effect of enzyme treatment, together with the dyeing process on the low-stress mechanical properties of the linen fabric, was then investigated. The low-stress mechanical properties were assessed quantitatively, including the tensile, shearing, bending, compression and surface properties of the enzyme-treated and dyed linen fabrics. The results revealed that the enzyme treatment with subsequent dyeing could alter these properties to a greater extent, depending predominantly on the concentration of enzyme used.
