Superhydrophobicity, self-repair, self-cleaning, energy conservation, dry adhesion, adaptive development, drag reduction, and other natural phenomena have evolved over billions of years to produce more efficient textile solutions than equivalent man-made solutions. Few innovative biomimetic technologies viz., functional surfaces, structural colours, fibre structures, self-healing, thermal insulation, and other characteristics that can be used for prospective textile goods. Biomimetic research is a fast-growing discipline, and exploiting the issue’s full potential in the manufacture of unique and sustainable textiles requires a multidisciplinary approach based on a comprehensive knowledge of nature. Biomimicry has the potential to enhance man-made materials and pave the way for the next generation of technological, high-performance materials, including novel materials and characteristics, creative structures and designs, and product and process sustainability. In this study, the potential of a bio-inspired textile structure is explored to the best extent conceivable. The potential use of different biomimetic fabrics was also considered. In essence, this technique can serve as a source of motivation for further material advancement.
