The mainstream research discourses and practices have been transforming into interdisciplinary studies recently. The combination of electronics and textiles can be classified as: wearable electronics, textronics and fibertronics, based on degree of integration. This paper discussed about development of cotton wrapped nichrome yarn, copper core conductive yarn, optical core conductive yarn POF of different diameters to produce, nichrome fabric, copper core conductive fabric, optical core
