Abstract : The current review summarizes textile styles and printing methods. Where, there are three basic styles to print a color on fabric namely: (a) direct, (b) discharge and (c) resist. While printing methods comprise:(a) block, (b) roller, (c) screem, (d) rotary, (e) transfer, (f) foam and digital "ink jet" printing. The theory of discharge printing involves the degradation, by chemical reagents; of the chromophore system of dyestuffs applied to the textile material, most of them are hazardous chemicals. However, recently, the environmental and industrial safety conditions increased the potential for use of enzymes in textile processing to ensure ecofriendly production. The present review fulfils the following items: (a) application of enzymes in textiles, (b)factors affecting enzyme activity and (c) enzyme inhibitors.
